CLEVELAND (AP) — Baker Mayfield’s got his hands on another cold beverage. He’s not chugging this one.

The Browns’ star quarterback, who bit into a beer can last weekend and gulping it down while attending an Indians game, has added sports drink BODYARMOR to his growing list of endorsements.

Mayfield says he likes the product “genuinely” and is proud to be the latest high-profile athlete to join BODYARMOR’S illustrious roster. It includes Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, Los Angeles Angels All-Star Mike Trout and World Cup soccer champion Megan Rapinoe.

Mayfield says part of the allure of aligning with the company is because Kobe Bryant is a major investor.
