Browns video: Baker Mayfield stars in hilarious episode of Cold as Balls with Kevin Hart
Mayfield, who does reasonably well on the field, is starting to become a bit of a celebrity in other ways, as well. In “Cold As Balls,” Hart does interviews with celebrities while sitting in a tub of ice-cold water. This is just the latest in his many star turns, with his first being a well-received appearance in the NFL100 commercial in the Super Bowl.
Mayfield and Hart, who has endured a bit of controversy as of late, easily traded one-liners and laughed at themselves. Check out the video below.
Even if his Hollywood career doesn’t take off — yet — Mayfield is still doing well on the field. After being drafted first overall by the Browns back in 2018, he led the team to their first win in more than 600 games. Throughout the season, the quarterback then threw 27 touchdowns in his 13 starts for the Browns in 2018, breaking the rookie-season, passing-TD record previously held by Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson.
Mayfield started playing football in college, where he started at Texas Tech as a walk-on player before transferring to Oklahoma, where he played for three seasons.
Mayfield signed a four-year rookie contract with the Browns on July 24, 2018, with the deal worth $32.68 million in guaranteed salary. He is also a two-time Heisman Trophy finalist and a one-time winner (he took home the prize in 2017, just one year before the Browns drafted him).
