Robert Klemko of TheMMQB.com, citing league sources, reports that the Browns requested a private visit with Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield following the Super Bowl. This is the first request Mayfield has received. The plan for Mayfield is for him to work out in Southern California in advance of Oklahoma’s Pro Day (March 14) and the NFL Combine (Feb. 27-March 5). At the Senior Bowl, Browns GM John Dorsey defended Mayfield’s character and reports have said Cleveland will do plenty of work on him this offseason. More interesting than that, is the fact that the Browns elected to hire Scot McCloughan as a personnel consultant. McCloughan previously compared Mayfield to Brett Favre and said: “he’d be my guy — hands down.” “I was lucky enough to have been around Favre, and I’ve gotten to know Baker pretty well just by watching him,” McCloughan said in an interview with “The Doug Gottlieb Show.” “There’s some off-field stuff, but nothing too hairy. I mean it happens. College kids are college kids. It’s not like he’s doing anything really bad. But he is a competitive guy. He wears it on his sleeve from the standpoint of emotions.
