One commenter wrote: “Please tell Browns fans you’re not going to be kneeling this season.”
“Pull your head out. I absolutely am,” Mayfield replied, as noted by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Has Mayfield betrayed conservative fans of the NFL and the American flag, or is he merely exercising his right of free speech?
