The Cleveland Browns made their Week 1 matchup appointment watching by sending Baker Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers, their opening opponent.
After re-signing for another season in Cleveland, Jadeveon Clowney will try to put pressure on his former teammate, assuming Carolina names Mayfield the starter over Sam Darnold. However, Clowney is not thinking ahead to that encounter.
During an interview with CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson (h/t 247Sports), Clowney took the high road when asked what he has in store for Mayfield.
“Right now, I don’t know,” Clowney said. “We’re just preparing ourselves. When that day comes, we’ll talk about the plans when we get there. But, hey, good luck to Baker.”
Although the quarterback’s tenure in Cleveland came to an unceremonious end, Clowney wished Mayfield well with his new team.
“We try to go out there like we do in every team,” Clowney said. “That’s how it goes. That’s still my boy. … I still wish him the best over there, I’d like him to succeed and for the rest of his career a lot of success.”
Clowney said he returned to the Browns mainly because they acquired Deshaun Watson. He admitted that he “probably would have” followed his former Houston Texans teammate to the Atlanta Falcons if he went there instead.
Instead, he is back with the Browns, who will soon prepare to face the cornerstone of their former franchise.
The former No. 1 overall pick recorded nine sacks, two forced fumbles, and 32 pressures in 14 games last season. He will have a chance to score his first career double-digit sack campaign while playing alongside Myles Garrett in 2022.
Clowney responded diplomatically this time, but his mindset may change closer to the Week 1 meeting in Carolina.

Missing from practice were starting defensive ends Myles Garrett, who is dealing with shoulder, bicep and hand injuries after being in a one-car crash on Monday, and Jadeveon Clowney, who is still recovering from an injury to his ankle suffered in Week 2 against the New York Jets.
