Mayfield was the No. 9 quarterback in football last season, according to Pro Football Focus. The Browns star told reporters this week he is "a lot better" at this point in training camp than he was in 2018.

"Everything is not moving as fast," Mayfield said. "Just trying to get settled in a little more, handling the little things and getting the team together because that is what is important is making sure we are on the same page and fine tuning things.

"We are not going to be perfect, but as long as we communicate and we get on the same page, we will be able to work on that moving forward."
