Baker Mayfield was in the same area code

as former teammate Dimitri Flowers on Monday.The former Sooner fullback worked out with the Cleveland Browns Youth Trevon Coley Jersey , along with several other players including former TCU receiver John Diarse, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson.After going undrafted, Flowers landed with the New York Jets before being dumped during final roster cuts. The running back-needy Jaguars signed him to their practice squad on Oct. 10, then released him two days later to sign former Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough.Flowers was a multi-use fullback who Mayfield utilized frequently as a pass-catcher in 2017. He finished his four years at Oklahoma with 54 catches for 886 yards and 13 touchdowns. Flowers added four short-yardage rushing touchdowns, all in his senior season.It’s unclear what role the Browns might envision for him, but the 6-foot-2 running back could be a signal the team is looking for an additional pass protector for Mayfield. As of now, the Browns have went without a traditional fullback.His connection to Mayfield and pass-catching ability is an obvious plus, which makes his workout at least a little bit interesting. The rookie quarterback could use a familiar face, especially a guy who has been a reliable target and safety valve for him in the past.Diarse is a less interesting name, but the Browns do need receiver help. The 6-foot-1 receiver went undrafted after catching 96 balls for 1,429 yards and nine touchdowns in two years with LSU and two seasons at TCU.It’s unclear who the other tryouts were , but it’s a safe bet they were similar players who the Browns wanted to take a look at for reserve or practice squad roles.The Browns need to make a roster move to replace receiver Rod Streater, who is out for the season after breaking his neck during a special teams collision with teammate Denzel Rice in Week 6.Unfortunately, the Browns are still down to four active receivers again this week after signing Breshad Perriman last Saturday. He’ll be asked to learn quickly and probably play snaps in Tampa Bay unless the team makes a quick move to address the depleted position. Sam Darnold once thought he'd be wearing an orange helmet just a few shades brighter than his hair color.But the former USC star wasn't precisely what the Browns were looking for in a franchise quarterback in the NFL draft. Darnold checked most of the boxes, but not all of them and Cleveland passed on him with the No. 1 overall pick, selecting Baker Mayfield instead.On Thursday night, Darnold can show the Browns they made a mistake.Another one.The youngest quarterback to start a season opener since 1970, Darnold will perform on a national TV stage for the second time already as a pro when he leads the New York Jets into FirstEnergy Stadium to face the Browns, who have played well enough to win their first two games but are still searching for their first victory since Dec. 24, 2016.Heading into April's draft, Darnold was considered the top of the deep 2018 QB class and it appeared he would wind up in Cleveland, where quarterbacks have come and gone like restaurant busboys over the past two decades."Yeah Denzel Ward Jersey , I thought I could've ended up there or several other teams," Darnold said this week. "I was excited to go anywhere. "Whoever wanted me, whoever wanted to pick me as a top pick, to me it was a dream come true right when it happened."After the Browns nabbed Mayfield and the Giants grabbed running back Saquon Barkley, the Jets took Darnold and have been more than satisfied by his early development.He rebounded from throwing an interception that was returned for a TD on his first pass attempt in the opener and led the Jets to a 31-point win, and last week the 21-year-old became the youngest QB to pass for 300 yards.Darnold insists he's not seeking any revenge or trying to prove anything to the Browns."No," he said. "I'm just going to go out there and play ball."The Jets and Browns are on divergent paths with their rookie quarterbacks. New York has chosen to start Darnold, while Cleveland is holding Mayfield out to watch and learn behind Tyrod Taylor.It's not a race and the Browns feel no need to rush their plan."We feel very comfortable with the guy that we selected in Baker, and I'm sure they do with him," coach Hue Jackson said. "He's a fine prospect and is going to be a fine player. I think they got a good one, but we feel we have a really good one Authentic Jabrill Peppers Jersey , too."After facing Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees 鈥?two future Hall of Famers 鈥?in Weeks 1 and 2, the Browns aren't looking at Darnold as any break."I don't think that any game in the NFL is a breather," said linebacker Joe Schobert."He's got a big arm. He's doing good things as their quarterback. The hardest thing to do is come into the NFL and play quarterback and be successful. And he's so far shown himself to be pretty poised and good at it."PRESSURE PACKEDThe Browns are down and desperate. They need a win, and after stubbing their toes twice already, need to beat the Jets. A 1-1-1 record seems light years from 0-2-1."Our team is excited, hungry, disappointed, anxious 鈥?all of those words you want to use," said Jackson, who is 1-32-1 in two seasons. "We just need to get it done."BACK 'HOME"The Dawg Pound will be a homecoming of sorts for several current Jets, who are former Browns.Running back Isaiah Crowell played the past four years in Cleveland. Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor spent two seasons with the Browns Youth David Njoku Jersey , including a breakout campaign in 2016 when the former quarterback had 1,007 yards. His QB for parts of those seasons was Josh McCown, now Darnold's backup and mentor.Cornerback Buster Skrine played in Cleveland from 2011-14. Jets coach Todd Bowles, too, has Cleveland connections as an assistant under Butch Davis from 2001-04.ALIVE & KICKINGGreg Joseph was on the beach hanging out with friends last weekend, "you know, just living the South Florida life." Things changed quickly.The rookie is now in the spotlight 鈥?or crosshairs 鈥?as Cleveland's new kicker. Joseph signed this week after the Browns cut Zane Gonzalez for missing two field goals and two extra points last week.Joseph, who spent the preseason with Miami, is excited about the opportunity."My film's out there. My stats are out there," he said. "I learned a lot about me, the athlete I am and the competitor I am. I'm ready to bring it here."Q IS THE ANSWERDarnold's favorite target through two games has been wide receiver Quincy Enunwa , who has a team-leading 13 catches for 155 yards and a touchdown. Enunwa has been targeted 21 times, more than Pryor (11), Robby Anderson (six) and Jermaine Kearse (two) combined.SACK RACEThe Jets got their first four sacks of the season last Sunday against Miami, the most since getting to Taylor seven times when he played with Buffalo in Week 9 last season."The whole unit, we definitely picked it up last week," defensive end Leonard Williams said. "We didn't have any sacks in the first week, even though they got the ball out pretty quickly. At the same time, I don't want to make excuses. We definitely picked it up last week and I hope we continue to make strides on that." Custom Carolina Panthers Jerseys
