CINCINNATI -- Baker Mayfield said that he wishes Odell Bettham Jr. all the best.

The Browns' quarterback, however, said that he will continue to be focused on his current teammates after the team's 41-16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. This was just days after OBJ had essentially forced his way out from Cleveland.

"I wish him all the best, I truly do. Mayfield stated that his feelings had not changed after Beckham was released by the team. "From a personal perspective, he is a good friend. ... However, I worry about the men in our locker room. These guys are amazing. I was proud of how they managed to stay focused despite the chaos and how hard they did their jobs. We will see if it can be improved upon and continued to improve.

Beckham's father posted a video on Facebook showing the times Mayfield did not throw him the ball. This made it inevitable that Beckham and Mayfield would end their relationship. Beckham Sr. also criticized Mayfield in the comments. The Browns exempted Beckham from practice Wednesday while they negotiated Beckham's exit. This was Beckham's 29th Birthday.

This is a strange trend that dates back to last season, when Beckham Jr. sustained a season-ending injury to his knee in Week 7. Mayfield played his best with Beckham off the field.

Sunday's completion of 14 of 21 passes by Mayfield for 218 yards and two touchdowns was without an interception.

He still had a perfect quarterback rating at 158.3 in the third quarter, just before the Browns took a 31-10 lead with a Nick Chubb 70 yard touchdown run.

The Browns hammered the Bengals with a series big plays throughout the game. This included cornerback Denzel Ward’s 99-yard pick-6 and Mayfield’s 60-yard touchdown bomb for Donovan Peoples Joness. Cleveland became the first team to produce a passing touchdown as well as a rushing touchdown and defensive touchdown within the same game since 1967, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

"We needed that win. It was a must for our entire locker room. They knew it. Mayfield stated that they played for one another. "I trust these guys in this locker area. Nobody flinched when adversity struck. It was a difficult week. It was a long week. These guys are amazing.

Beckham will be on waivers Monday. Beckham can sign with any team he chooses if he isn't claimed.

Beckham's Mayfield stated that "we still haven’t spoken." But that doesn't mean things aren't possible. I wish him well. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors."
