While Browns’ QB Baker Mayfield is seeing UFOs, one of his linemen is carrying gators
The Cleveland Browns have been up to some… interesting things lately.
Quarterback Baker Mayfield tweeted he and his wife, Emily, saw a UFO near Lake Travis in Texas on Wednesday night. That one predictably drew a rant from “The Herd” host and FS1 personality Colin Cowherd.
But Browns Second Team All-Pro right guard Wyatt Teller was perhaps even more exotic with it. Teller spent Friday just casually carrying an alligator on his back.

Teller was one of the highest-graded guards in football last year, per Pro Football Focus.
In fact, Teller was the highest-graded offensive lineman in all of football as of December, later finishing the season with a 92.9 overall grade.
Maybe it’s no surprise Teller and the rest of Cleveland’s offensive line was one of the best in football in 2020. The offensive guard is shuttling gators in his spare time!
Browns fans have reason to be optimistic heading into 2021 and beyond. The dominant offensive line performance of Teller and All-Pro tackle Jack Conlin helped the Browns rank third in rushing yards and fifth in yards per carry
Despite a slow start, Mayfield himself also put together the best season of his young career. The former No. 1 pick posted a career-high 72.2 total quarterback rating. He was comfortable being a game manager, but also managed to hit on home run plays despite Odell Beckham Jr. missing most of the season.
Mayfield and Teller are just two pieces of Cleveland’s bright future on the field. They are providing some oddities off the field, as well.
