The COVID-19 pandemic has kept NFL players away from coaches, which has led to Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield using golf technology to improve his footwork.

Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt said he is using technology that golfers use to track Mayfield's footwork, and give tips to try and help improve it.

“The technology I got was from a golf lesson I had 10 years ago where they use this app that I still use to this day,” Van Pelt said, via Mary Kay Cabot of “You can really slow-mo and break it down, and you can draw on the app, as well. It gives me the ability to share my screen with Baker, watch his feet and really you can zoom all the way into just the feet and you can talk about each step, the position of each step and the length of each step. It’s actually a pretty cool tool. It is the first time I had really used it extensively to teach footwork, but it’s been useful.”

No one probably thought heading into the offseason that golf tools would be helping football teams, but everyone has had to get creative. This is a big offseason for Mayfield, so it's really unfortunate that he isn't allowed to be in the training facilities.

During the 2019 season, Mayfield completed 59.4 percent of his passes throwing for 3,827 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 21 interceptions. The interceptions are a big problem that need to be fixed. If his footwork can get better and keep him more on balanced, it could help that part of his game.
