Baker Mayfield zings Tom Brady amid Colin Cowherd/UFO silliness
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield claimed earlier this week that he and his wife may have seen a UFO in Texas during a drive.
Almost on cue, notorious Mayfield-basher Colin Cowherd took the Browns signal-caller to task for bringing up his possible extraterrestrial experience.
This led to Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback entering the fray with a humorous tweet. In response, Mayfield jumped at the opportunity to launch a zinger at Brady’s expense.
First things first, here is how all the silliness started: with a Mayfield tweet on Wednesday night in which his potential otherworldly experience was relayed.
Almost 100%, Em and I just saw a UFO drop straight out of the sky on our way home from dinner… we stopped and looked at each other and asked if either of us saw it… Very bright ball of light going straight down out of the sky towards Lake Travis. Anybody else witness this?— Baker Mayfield (@bakermayfield) March 4, 2021
The next day, Cowherd, who for some reason has been pathologically incapable of laying off Mayfield during the QB’s NFL career, blasted the Browns signal-caller based upon a ridiculously dubious argument.
“I would prefer of all the qualities of a franchise quarterback … I want to know your arm. Are you good pre-snap? Are you mobile? The ability to see UFOs in the offseason is nowhere near my top 10 qualifications,” Cowherd said on his “The Herd” show.
“Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw, Tom Brady have never seen aliens. I would prefer my guys don’t talk about it.”
Later on Thursday, Brady, a known social media wisenheimer and Twitter provocateur, surfaced with a tweet in which he questions how Cowherd would know whether or not he’s ever had an alien encounter.
How do you know I’ve never seen aliens Colin? https://t.co/j4ycqKQdDV— Tom Brady (@TomBrady) March 4, 2021
On Thursday evening, Mayfield then responded to Brady’s tweet by delivering a potshot at the Bucs quarterback’s expense related to his age.
At your age you’ve probably seen a bunch..— Baker Mayfield (@bakermayfield) March 5, 2021
Hopefully, Mayfield’s tweet brings the story full circle and the absurd saga where a nationally renowned sports media talking head called out an NFL player about possible seeing a UFO can come to a merciful end.
