QB Garrett Gilbert:

On being on the Browns with QB Baker Mayfield, given their friendship dating back to Lake Travis:

“It has been a lot of fun. Always good to have a familiar face in the room, and like you said, Baker and I go way back. We sort of grew up together playing the same position at the same school. It has been a lot of fun to get back in the same room together and be able to come to work every day with him.”


On training camp:

“It is a day-to-day process. I feel like I am definitely making some strides and there are a lot of areas that some things come up and it is just all about not making the same mistake twice for me. That is sort of where I am at right now and trying to stay comfortable within the offense, feel everything out and again and not make the same mistake twice. Every day is just a learning process, and every day I am just trying to improve and be the best player I can be for this team.”


On if the Browns discussed his role for the team prior to signing his contract, including if that entailed being the No. 3 QB during the season:

“Not really. That is not really my concern anyway. My job again is just to simply improve every day and be the best that I can be. Wherever the chips may fall, then so be it. I feel like if I focus on improving myself everyday getting better, then everything will take care of itself.”


On how important is to make an impression Thursday and during the preseason:  

“Obviously, preseason football is very important for guys like me. It is just another day, another chance to go out and improve and play the game. Thursday night will be a lot of fun getting out there and seeing some live bullets. My day-to-day focus is the same. It is just improving every single day, getting more and more comfortable within this offense and getting ready to play football.”
