CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland Browns Executive Vice President JW Johnson took to social media to call out Carolina Panthers QB Baker Mayfield after the team’s 26-24 win Sunday afternoon.

The Browns, who were down 24-23 within the last minute of the game, were saved by a 58-yard field goal from rookie K Cade York.

Johnson’s tweet refers to “off the leash”, the slogan mentioned on one of the licensed, limited-edition t-shirts shared by Mayfield as a dig to his former team. Mayfield previously denied involvement with the creation of the shirts.

Mayfield also made an alleged comment towards his former team in the days leading up to Sunday’s game, denying the rumors of the comment being made.

Mayfield was traded by the Browns to Carolina for a conditional draft pick.

The Browns open up at home against the New York Jets at 1 p.m. on Sept. 18.
