I didn’t know about this global pandemic," Stefanski quipped. During a Zoom conference call Friday, Stefanski revealed he went to Austin “prior to everything going crazy” and spent quality time with Mayfield, who followed up a strong rookie, record-setting season in 2018 with a clunker in 2019 as the Browns finished 6-10 and didn't graze expectations.
I have to work hard, and our coaches, our players have to work hard at getting to know each other in a bunch of different ways so that we can come together and get ready to go practice and play. There’s just this element when you are virtual, when you do have two separate locker rooms and when you have the Plexiglas up, you have to work extra hard to come together. During the visit, Stefanski set forth his expectations for Mayfield in terms of leadership, conditioning, mechanics and more.
