Senior quarterback Baker Mayfield looks for a teammate to pass the ball to during the Rose Bowl against Georgia Jan. 1, 2018.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield supported Julius Jones, an Oklahoma resident on death row, by wearing his name on his helmet during the Browns' game against the Baltimore Ravens Sunday afternoon.

Mayfield also wrote a letter Gov. Kevin Stitt on May 28 asking to review Jones' case. Jones was suspected of killing an Oklahoma resident and was convicted of first-degree murder. Jones has maintained his innocence throughout the entire process. Among the other notable sports figures supporting Jones are NBA stars Trae Young and Blake Griffin.
