As the execution date approaches, Baker Mayfield chokes up talking about death row inmate Julius Jones.

Baker Mayfield, the Cleveland Browns’ starting quarterback, has a lot on his plate and isn’t shy about talking about the challenges he faces on a daily basis.

Mayfield, on the other hand, became visibly moved when discussing death row inmate Julis Jones.

Mayfield was asked about Jones, who is scheduled to be executed on Thursday, while speaking to reporters on Wednesday.

According to Yahoo Sports, Mayfield said, “It’s pretty rough, to be honest with you.”

“It’s not an easy subject to discuss.”

For a long time, I’ve been trying to get the facts and the truth out there.

“However, it’s difficult to contemplate.” Jones is serving a life sentence for fatally shooting Paul Howell during an Oklahoma City carjacking in 1999.

Jones has maintained his innocence, claiming that co-defendant Christopher Jordan set him up.

Jordan accepted a plea deal and was released after serving 15 years in prison as the getaway driver.

When asked about Julius Jones, who is scheduled to be executed in Oklahoma on Thursday after spending 19 years on death row, Baker Mayfield became emotional.

Jones, 41, was 19 years old at the time and was planning to walk onto the basketball team at the University of Oklahoma.

Three different inmates who served time with Jordan, according to him, said Jordan admitted to them that he committed the crime.

Jones’ lawyers didn’t call any witnesses at his trial, and they didn’t present his alibi, which was that he was at home with his parents and sister the night of the murder.

The murder weapon was discovered wrapped in a red bandana with Jones’ DNA on it in a crawl space of Jones’ parents’ home, according to the prosecutors in the case.

One of the reasons Jones is guilty, they say, is because of Jordan’s testimony.

However, some aspects of the case are in doubt.

Jones’ conviction has been questioned due to the jury selection and a racial slur by a member of law enforcement.

Mayfield said in a short documentary released by the NFL in 2019 that “we’re not in the same day and age that we once were.”

“There is right and wrong.”

It’s not the same old thing that was always wrong.”
