Baker Mayfield shades ‘trolls’ while continuing body transformation

Baker Mayfield is fired up and ready for his third season with the Browns.

On Saturday, the 25-year-old quarterback posted a shot from his workout grind, letting the “Dawg Pound” know he’s put in the work as a critical season under first-year coach Kevin Stefanski looms.

“I let a lot of y’all get too comfortable… it’s about that time.. (Insert trolls commenting from their couch),” Mayfield captioned the Instagram post.

While wife Emily Mayfield replied with a “fire” emoji, Mayfield’s teammate and friend, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., responded, “This what the 🤬🤬🤬 I’m talkin bout !!!!”

Mayfield’s frame has been a topic of conversation beginning in February, when the 2018 first-overall pick was trolled after a shirtless vacation photo went viral.

That same month, NFL Network also reported that Mayfield intended to slim down after a disappointing sophomore campaign, in which he finished with 22 touchdowns and 21 interceptions and the Browns missed the playoffs.

“From what I understand, he put on some weight last year to bulk up and lost some quickness. His plan is to be slimmer & faster this year, with an emphasis on being in better shape,” NFL Network reported at the time.

In June, Mayfield’s transformation was on display in a bikini photo shared by Emily, with Browns fans complimenting the quarterback’s physique.

“Bake is looking 🔥🔥🔥! Hope y’all doing good!” one fan wrote.

“Great pic 🔥 Baker looking ready 👀,” another responded.

Last month, Mayfield posted another clip of a rigorous workout, as he sprinted and lifted weights.
