Viral 'Baby Baker'!: Browns QB Helps Fan Convince Wife to Name Baby After Him
It looks like the Cleveland Browns' Baker Mayfield just helped a fan name their baby.
Twitter user Ryan Tramel tweeted at the rookie quarterback on Sunday, writing, "My wife says if you retweet this, she will allow us to name our kid “Baker” that’s due in June, but that’s the only way she will consider it. Do it for the kids, literally."

Mayfield's response - which came hours after the Browns' victory over the Bengals - received more than 100,000 likes, and Tramel confirmed that "Baby Baker" is on the way!
Thank you all who congratulated my wife and I on our little blessing. We are proud to be @Browns fans, and it looks like Baby Baker may have a little more joy and a little less pain on Sunday’s than his dad has experienced over the years.
