Baker Mayfield wasn’t going to leave until every autograph was signed for the troops in attendance at Cleveland Browns training camp on Tuesday.
Despite being called off the field, Mayfield stuck around well after practice to snap selfies and sign everything from shirts to helmets and balls for the soldiers who were anxiously awaiting his signature.
Now that’s a true leader.
Hayden Grove of Cleveland.com caught the interaction on video.
One soldier notes that he was getting the autograph for his wife, who’s a big Mayfield supporter.
“She’s a huge, huge fan,” the solider said, saying that his wife was digging the QB’s new mustached look.
Baker Mayfield’s Mustache Makes Some Waves
As the soldier noted, the hair on Mayfield’s upper lip has made quite an impression during training camp.
For much of the offseason, the he sported a thick beard before going clean shaven for his wedding. Many wondered why the QB decided to go with the new style. The answer, well — it’s a secret.
“That’s the elegance of having a mustache,” Mayfield said. “Maybe you’ll find out why I got rid of the goatee, maybe you won’t. That’s the great thing about having a mustache. It’s always a mystery.”

He was then asked if he was going to be starring in any “films,” to which the QB responds, “You’d like that wouldn’t you.”
The look even generated a new prop bet put out from Bovada might be the most interesting — and hilarious — there’s been in quite some time.
The gambling site put up a prop bet on what the star QBs facial hair will be for the team’s Week 1 game against the Tennessee Titans. The straight mustache currently is the favorite.

Baker Mayfield’s Beer Chug at MLB Game Goes Viral
Mayfield went viral over the weekend for a massive beer bite-and-chug at a Cleveland Indians game.
Following the chug, Mayfield emphatically pointed to the back of his Francisco Lindor jersey, pumping up the crowd further. The moment helped spark the Indians team on the field, as Lindor punctuated a big rally with a three-run homer, helping Cleveland win 7-2.
“He goes old-school,” he said with a sarcastically serious tone. “And he just bites the beer with his tooth… crashes it with his tooth, pulls the tab, A-plus. That’s A-plus.”
The moment also caught the attention of his head coach, who was able to have a laugh about it.
“It was very impressive,” Kitchens said with a smile. “I’d be worried about my tooth.”
He was then asked if he could pull it off, quickly responding with a “no” telling reporters he doesn’t drink beer anymore — which wasn’t quite the truth.
“That’s a lie,” Kitchens said, drawing giggles from the media scrum. “I told you all I wouldn’t lie. That’s a lie.”
