Vets addressed Duke Johnson remarks with Mayfield

Baker Mayfield wasn’t delighted with Duke Johnson handled his situation, such as a trade request, a week.
A few Cleveland Browns teammates were not happy with his response was managed by the quarterback.
NFL Network’s Michael Silver reported that, according to sources, hash out their differences and many Browns players approached Mayfield in the locker room following the critical comments about Johnson of the QB to register their displeasure.
??? Team matches for best staying FAs
??? Ranking deepest position groups
??? NFL triplets positions: Who is No. 1?
??? NFC West primer: Camp questions ??? Rank: Could Redskins surprise?
“So it’s rather striking to get a player to get involved in a teammate’s business in anything but a supportive function,” Silver said on NFL Network’s Inside Minicamp Camp Live. “We saw it last year with the Steelers and Le’Veon Bell — which has been an anomaly. Baker Mayfield is the clear leader of that (locker room) but I am told by multiple sources that several veterans came to him in the locker room after those comments about Duke Johnson and let’s say voiced their displeasure, saying,’Listen it is one thing to be the leader but this is a guy who is going through something, it is business and we must support him’ Baker might not have agreed with them, but he heard them so that’s something to keep an eye as a very, very gifted group gets ready for what could be a significant season.”
Following Johnson reiterated he’d prefer to get traded, Mayfield said good riddance, last week.
“That is something that we’ve been dealing with for a little while,” Mayfield said at the time, via The Plain Dealer. “When we’ve got men that want to be here, they will demonstrate that, they will voice this. Clearly he’s going to handle his stuff you are not or you’re either on this train, although he desires, it’s moving. You can escape the way or you are able to join us. So it is what it is.”
Mayfield also stated Johnson’s situation was”self-inflicted.”
“I wouldn’t say I am unhappy about it,” Mayfield added. “It’s only the way he has handled it. It can be a stir-up in the media, it can be however it wants, but if somebody wants to be here, they will be here in that situation. You have guys within our locker room who are dying to get playing time, that are going to be here, and I get it…”
Jarvis Landry spoke in support of Johnson.
“I hope he understands and feels that men are here because of him, if he is here or not, the connection goes past the participant, the individual also, so I certainly hope he understands that and understands that there are guys that are here for him,” the receiver said.
The Browns do not practice before training camp in late July, when if they remain relevant by then, the locker room will reconvene to hash out any lingering issues.
Silver noted that head coach Freddie Kitchens is currently playing a part in the installation that was offensive through June practices.
