The Browns are among the teams who are skipping out on OTAs, at least on one side of the ball.
As explained by Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, quarterback Baker Mayfield will host some of his offensive teammates in Austin, Texas this week, in lieu of participating in organized team activities.
Mayfield and teammates previously got together in Florida in April, and they plan to return to Florida in July.
The Browns’ offensive players have largely been staying away from in-person voluntary workouts, given the efforts of the NFL Players Association to encourage players to boycott those activities. The fact that Browns center JC Tretter serves as the president of the union surely makes it harder for other Browns players to defy the union’s wishes.
