Cleveland Browns quarterbacks Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield have reportedly parked a QB-only RV at training camp “so they can have a top-secret clubhouse.”
According to ESPN’s Dianna Russini, the QBs don’t have a name for their exclusive RV yet and they won’t reveal what goes on inside. That said, with HBO’s Hard Knocks documenting the Browns’ training camp this summer, it’s likely we’ll learn more about the secretive RV when the series premieres on August 7.
Taylor, who the Browns acquired via trade with the Buffalo Bills in March, is reportedly in line to start the season at QB for the Browns. After finishing last season with an 0-16 record, the Browns are in no hurry to rush their #1 overall pick, Baker Mayfield, onto the field.
“Tyrod Taylor is the starter,” Browns coach Hue Jackson said in a pre-training camp press conference Wednesday, according to WKYC. “I don’t envision any situation where all of a sudden (Mayfield’s) getting a bunch of first-team reps unless, God forbid, something happens, but at the same time, there might be a day — please nobody hold me to it — where Tyrod all of a sudden maybe doesn’t go and Baker’s out there and people go ‘oh my gosh.’ It wouldn’t be that.”
The Browns will open up the 2018 NFL season at home on September 9 against the reigning AFC North division champion Pittsburgh Steelers.
