He said, he said: Browns stars Mayfield, OBJ rip NY Giants

By Tom Withers, Associated Press BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Maybe it's good the Browns and Giants won't play this season. They're already trash-talking. Comments by brash Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield and star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. created a stir at the training camps for both teams Tuesday, adding extra heat to brutally humid weather conditions. Mayfield, the outspoken and uninhibited second-year QB, strangely took a swipe at the Giants and rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, the team's first-round pick this year and potential heir apparent to Eli Manning. In an interview with GQ, Mayfield said he was stunned the Giants would draft someone such as Jones, who played at Duke and was not considered one of the top QBs in this year's class. "Blows my mind," Mayfield told the magazine, adding he thinks NFL teams are flawed in their quarterback evaluation. "Some people overthink it. That's where people go wrong. They forget you've gotta win." Mayfield's remarks were then presented to Jones, who was somewhat shocked by them because he doesn't know Cleveland's quarterback. "I try not to listen to much that's said," Jones said. "I think I've done a pretty good job of that. I heard that before. I kind of have the same mindset, I certainly have a lot to focus on here, I have a lot to worry about here and I'm focused on that." He doesn't have any background or known beef with Mayfield, which is why Jones was somewhat caught off guard. "I have never spoken to him," said Jones, who went 17-19 in college. "He has an opinion. A lot of people have opinions." While Mayfield's feelings may have rubbed some the wrong way, first-year Browns coach Freddie Kitchens was unfazed. Kitchens dismissed the idea that anything Mayfield says or does will make the Browns, who have huge expectations after a 7-8-1 season and the arrival of Beckham, any more of a target. "We don't care, all right?" Kitchens said, when asked if the bull's-eye on the Browns had grown. "It is already on there so it does not matter. We will be ready to play. I do not know what a 'bull's-eye' is," he said. "I do not know what that is. Does anybody know? Does anybody know what a bull's-eye is? If they are not trying to beat our ass and we are not trying to beat their ass, I do not know what else you do. "That is what we are going to try and do, and hopefully, they try and do the same." Following practice, Mayfield posted on Instagram that his comments about Jones were taken out of context. "This is not what I said ... just so we're clear," Mayfield wrote. "I also said I was surprised I got drafted number one. Then was talking about the flaws in evaluating QBs. Where I brought up winning being important. Reporters and media will do anything to come up with a clickbait story. Heard nothing but good things and wish nothing but the best for Daniel." The former No. 1 overall pick is scheduled to meet with reporters Wednesday. As for Beckham, he can't seem to shake the Giants despite insisting he has moved on from his drama-filled days with them. In a Sports Illustrated cover story, the three-time Pro Bowler said New York turned down better trade offers to send him to Cleveland in March. The Browns acquired Beckham and defensive end Olivier Vernon for guard Kevin Zeitler, safety Jabrill Peppers and first- and third-round picks. "This wasn't no business move," he told SI. "This was personal. They thought they'd send me here to die." Shurmur, who spent part of last season sparring with Beckham or dealing with the endless theater that seems to follow him, chose not to engage any further with his former player. "Quite frankly on our list of issues of the day it really doesn't matter what Odell or Baker says," Shurmur said. "There are many other things we probably should be discussing. Again, we wish him (Beckham) well and it was a trade. We said that all along, I said I would not comment on what he says about the situation." Beckham has acknowledged struggling in the weeks after the deal. He skipped almost all of Cleveland's offseason program but he's been adamant that he's adjusted to his new team and city. Kitchens believes Beckham. "No doubt. When he came back, he was all in — exactly what he promised me he would do," Kitchens said. "I trust him. He trusts me. I will not betray him. I do not think he will betray me." NOTES: Pro Bowl DE Myles Garrett missed practice with an unspecified illness. ... Mayfield and Kitchens were presented with jerseys by Columbus Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno and Brandon Dubinsky, who came to camp to show their support for the Browns. Kitchens followed the NHL club's playoff run last season, and he's amazed by the skill level it takes to play hockey. Has he ever tried the sport? "No, I am from Alabama," he quipped. "There are no hockey sticks. There is a football, baseball and basketball and that is about it. " ___ AP Sports Writer Tom Canavan contributed to this report......»»

Bills running back McCoy using his doubters as motivation

By John Wawrow, Associated Press PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Question LeSean McCoy all you want for having lost a step now that he's on the wrong side of 30 and coming off his least productive season. The Buffalo Bills running back says he won't hold it against anyone when proving them wrong. Insisting he's still "The Guy," McCoy ended an offseasonlong silence following the Bills' final training camp session Tuesday by saying he's heard all the doubts, and using them as motivation. "It's kind of weird. Since I've been like 9 years old, I've been the top guy so it's even weird to hear stuff like that. But I mean, it comes along with it," McCoy said. "I guess that's just how it is. I'm fine with that. I know who I am. I know how I play. And my teammates know that. So I mean, we'll see on Sundays," he added. "And the one thing I won't do, I won't even bring it up. So if somebody here says something about me, I won't bring it up to you. It'll be like I never heard it." McCoy, who has previously acknowledged not being thrilled to celebrate turning 31 last month, has plenty to prove entering his 11th season and fifth in Buffalo. After topping 1,100 yards rushing in 2016 and '17, McCoy's numbers plummeted last year. The NFL's 2013 rushing leader finished with 514 yards rushing and 752 yards from scrimmage — both career lows. Speculation of McCoy's status was further fueled this offseason, when the Bills restocked their backfield by signing Frank Gore and TJ Yeldon in free agency. And then Buffalo used a third-round draft pick to select Devin Singletary, whose shifty style drew comparisons to McCoy at Florida Atlantic. "It's no different. Just guys in the backfield to help me out," McCoy said of the added competition. "I'm the guy. I feel like that. That's what I've been told. And that's my every day approach." He then dismissed a question over the possibility of being traded before the season begins. "I've seen that. But for the last two years, people have been saying that," said McCoy, who is entering the final year of his contract. "If that was the case, I would've been gone." The Bills have publicly backed McCoy. General manager Brandon Beane opened training camp two weeks ago by reiterating comments he made after drafting Singletary. Asked about "the outside noise" of trade speculation, Beane said, "There's not any inside noise," and chalked it up to the media having nothing to report on while the team was off. "When Sean and Brian Daboll roll the ball out, LeSean's going to be the first running back to touch the ball," Beane added, referring to coach Sean McDermott and Buffalo's offensive coordinator. McDermott on Tuesday said he's liked how McCoy has handled the added competition. "I think he's off to a good start. His attitude's been great," McDermott said. "And I look forward to watching him continue to get himself ready to go for the season." McCoy has worked exclusively with the starting offense through camp, and has reeled off several impressive runs. The next step comes Thursday, when the Bills open the preseason by hosting Indianapolis. McCoy spoke with a calm, confident voice, and said he's learned his lesson from last year when he brashly shared his objective to reach the 12,000-yard plateau to solidify his place among the NFL's greats. He couldn't even break the 11,000-yard mark, and enters this season ranked 25th overall and third among active players with 10,606 yards rushing. "When you kind of focus on the numbers, the yards, you kind of don't get it where you want it," he said. "I think the first goal is just to make every rep, make every play count, work hard and win games, and the other stuff and stats, they'll follow." He's also aware of how mercurial the media and fans are when it comes to production. "You have a bad two games and then you have three hot ones, and you're the man," McCoy said. "No matter what goes one, they'll look for the guy with name or the money. So it kind of motivates me." Not all of Buffalo's running struggles could be pegged on McCoy. The Bills were introducing a rookie quarterback in Josh Allen, which led to opposing defenses focusing on stopping McCoy. Buffalo also featured a patchwork line after center Eric Wood and guard Richie Incognito unexpectedly retired. The Bills have retooled their line by adding seven newcomers, including rookie second-round draft pick Cody Ford. And they've upgraded their group of receivers, too, by signing Cole Beasley and John Brown in free agency. McCoy is impressed by the additions, and said Beasley and Brown will not only help the passing attack, but also open space for the running game. The addition of Gore was welcomed by McCoy, because they're close friends and spend the offseason working out in Florida. "I'm excited, knowing it's a challenge and everybody's talking about the backs and the new additions, but I'm challenging myself," McCoy said. "I look to be the best player every snap. So I take the challenge for myself.".....»»
