Hall of Famer Steve Young has no sympathy for Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield despite his current predicament of being caught in no man’s land.
Young was asked about the former No. 1 overall pick while appearing on “The Rich Eisen Show” this week and put Mayfield on blast for playing the victim.
“You can’t play the victim,” Young said on Monday’s edition of the show. “Victimization has to be put in a bottle and buried in the ground and deep because it’s too easy to play the victim. Look, there are a lot of things out of your control and a lot of things you’ve done wrong. You cannot, in the NFL, survive and play the victim. You have to now leave it behind and own every bit of it. Own it. Own every mistake you’ve ever made. Own how you got here. Don’t blame other people. You got yourself here.”
“He’s gotta be at training camp,” NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport said on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Monday. “Training camp would be awkward. I’m sure he will show up. … It’s all awkward. I think in the end they can come up with a situation that both sides agree with, but it is going to be weird until they get to that point.”
