“He said he appreciated the time we got to spend together and getting to know each other and growing together,” Garrett told cleveland.com in a one-on-one interview last week. “I really I didn’t say anything. I didn’t really have much to say and I didn’t know how reply to it, so I didn’t.”
The end was near even before the Browns traded him as he demaded a trade just days before the team acquired Deshaun Watson in a blockbuster trade deal.
“I read (the text) but you know, there were some disagreements we had at a base level and I’m not mad at the guy or feeling any way towards it, but I just didn’t know how to reply to that, so I didn’t,” Garrett said.
The first week of the season will see the Browns travel to Charlotte to face off against Mayfield’s new team on Sunday.
“I still think he’s a hell of a competitor and he’s a great guy to have on your side and I’m rooting for him,” Garrett added. “I think he has a great family, but he’s the opposition now, and at the end of the day, I’ve got to take him out.”
Earlier this month, Garrett reacted to Cynthia Frelund’s alleged conversation with his old Cleveland Browns buddy who reportedly stated he was going to ‘fuck them up.’
“We’ll take it and we’ll use it, and I’m hoping for a great matchup,” he said. “I don’t think any less of him because he’s going out there and doing the same thing he did when he was with us. He’s the same guy personally, and maybe we’ll see a different Baker when we get on the field. Who knows?”
Well, we’ll know on Sept. 11th.
