Baker Mayfield has proven time and again that he's one of the most outspoken players in the NFL. His fiery personality often gets him into public spats, but Mayfield's most notable adversary is arguably Colin Cowherd.
During a segment on FS1's "The Herd with Colin Cowherd," Cowherd took a shot at the Cleveland Browns' Super Bowl hopes. Cowherd even suggested that the Browns' new head coach Freddie Kitchens could be looking for a new job in two year's time.
Understandably, this did not sit well with Mayfield and he clapped back at Cowherd in epic fashion.
Cowherd later tried to backpedal through his personal Twitter account. However, Mayfield stayed on the offensive by slamming Cowherd's opinions as clickbait.
At this point, it seems like the feud between Mayfield and Cowherd could last for quite some time. Hopefully Mayfield doesn't handle it the way that Jim Everett dealt with Jim Rome.
Regardless of how this feud ends, the way that Cowherd has doubled down on his pessimism regarding Mayfield's NFL future success could lead to some serious fireworks in the coming years.
