Nfl Notebook Haley Says Taylor Is Far Ahead Of Mayfield


Browns offensive coordinator Todd Haley sees no controversy at quarterback in Cleveland. Tyrod Taylor is the clear starter over No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield.

“He has a long way to go,” Haley, the first-year offensive coordinator, told reporters when asked about Mayfield as minicamp ended Thursday. “I’d say it’s clear that Tyrod is the leader of this team. That is a big component of that position, also.”

Mayfield did not object to Haley’s comments, telling reporters that Taylor “sets the bar high” and offers “a great situation for me to come into.” The 23-year-old Mayfield threw for 4,627 yards and 43 touchdowns at Oklahoma last season and hopes to learn behind Taylor.
