Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (6) warms up before a preseason NFL football game against the New York Giants Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018, in East Rutherford, N.J. However, in his second series on the field, Mayfield connected with tight end David Njoku for a short touchdown pass. On the very next set of downs, the former Oklahoma QB again scrambled to convert a 4th-and-2.

"If you're not going to work hard, then you're not doing it right", Mayfield said. "There's things guys need to settle down and get comfortable with everything, but I thought there were some good things, got a scoring drive, but definitely after watching, I think you can see a lot of things we need to improve on". That's the vision as well, making sure I have the windows to throw in.

FC Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes have joined Everton
Manchester United had expected to sign Mina after submitting a fresh £35million bid for the Colombia defender earlier this week. Moments later they also confirmed that Portugal worldwide Gomes would join the Premier League side on loan.

In addition to his rushes, Mayfield completed two passes of more than 20 yards on the drive. He then almost found controversial rookie Antonio Callaway, in the lineup only days after receiving a marijuana citation that he didn't immediately inform the Browns of, on a deep shot that Callaway couldn't locate.

It may have been the first preseason game, but that doesn't change the fact that at least some of the real gameplan made it into this one. It'll be cut down to 53 players on September 1. Mayfield hit fourth-round pick Antonio Callaway over the middle for a 54-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Mayfield finished 11-for-20, with 212 yards and two touchdowns.

Likewise, Landry - a three-time Pro Bowler spent the past four years with the Miami Dolphins - finished with two catches for 36 yards in limited playing time.
