Back in March Baker Mayfield and his wife, Emily, made headlines when they say they saw a UFO near Lake Travis, Texas.
“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,” Mayfield wrote at the time. “Very bright ball of light going straight down out of the sky towards Lake Travis. Anybody else witness this?”
On Monday, the Cleveland Browns quarterback doubled down.
“I am a firm believer in UFOs and Sasquatch. It is real. I saw it. I am glad the Navy finally confirmed some more pictures. Now everybody doesn’t think I am as crazy. I believe.”
He was then asked to describe his experience seeing the UFO earlier this offseason:
“We were driving home from dinner. I don’t remember what day it was. Just driving back home and had the music going. It was one of those things [Emily] was looking down at her phone in the passenger seat. It was nighttime so when you are looking at your phone screen, everything is dark around you and you can only see that light, but it was bright enough to where it caught her attention, too. We kind of just looked at each other, ‘Did you just see that? Yeah.’ Other people in that area confirmed, too.”
For what it’s worth, UFO sightings were up 51 percent in 2020.
