Von Miller, linebacker for the Denver Broncos, posted a picture on Instagram of himself hovering over Cleveland Brown’s quarterback, Baker Mayfield, after an apparent sack.
The quote screams “EARNED, NEVER GIVEN”.
This could be taken as a jab at the young Cleveland QB and so the comments started pouring in to defend the Land. One in particular caught everyone’s attention. Newly acquired receiver, Odell Beckham Jr was quick to come to Bakers rescue.
Beckham Jr’s comment is in all caps and finishes with three “laughing so hard I’m crying” emojis, to make sure the response not perceived as confrontational.
Per a recent article by Lauren Byner, we learned that the two are good friends and the comment was in good fun. You can read that article here.
I don’t see this post as an attack on Baker. I see it as a professional athlete being proud of his accomplishments. Unfortunately, Baker happened to be in the picture. It could have been any team, any quarterback.
However Von, if I’m wrong and this was your way of picking a fight. You and I are gonna have words.
