This week the New Orleans Saints will face the Cleveland Browns and Browns back-up QB Baker Mayfield has a Hall of Famer as a fan. Drew Brees told the media on Wednesday that Baker Mayfield is destined for greatness.
“I think he can be a lot better than me,” Brees said on a conference call Wednesday.
“Man, he’s got all the tools,” Brees said. “He’s more athletic. He probably can run around better. He’s got a stronger arm.”
“I followed his college career,” Brees said. “Couldn’t have been more impressed with what he was able to accomplish, especially last year. Really impressed with the way he plays the game. I think he’s a great competitor.”
That is a monster compliment for a player who has yet to take a snap in the NFL regular season.
