Baker Mayfield is finally traded from the Cleveland Browns as he is on his way to the Carolina Panthers.
The Cleveland Browns have traded Baker Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers. Finally, the former no. 1 overall pick is able to leave the Browns, as he embarks on a new journey in his career.
Baker’s exit from the Browns was looming since the franchise was linked to Deshaun Watson. The arrival of Waston from Houston confirmed that the Browns were shopping Baker, and a deal has finally gone through.
According to Ian Rapoport: A new QB in Carolina: The #Panthers are acquiring former No. 1 overall pick, Baker Mayfield, from the #Browns for a 2024 conditional 5th-round draft pick, sources tell me and @TomPelissero. Deal is pending a physical. All parties split the financials to make it happen.
Baker Mayfield will now fight for the starting quarterback role for the Carolina Panthers
The Carolina Panthers already have many quarterbacks at their helm. The inclusion of Baker Mayfield will make things very interesting, as he is in the best position to become the starting quarterback for them.
However, he’ll need to fight for the spot against Sam Darnold and Matt Corrall. With the Panthers not looking to trade any of their quarterbacks, the competition in their camp will be quite tough, and as a result, the Panthers fans are looking for an exciting season ahead. Hopefully, Baker Mayfield will be able to revive his career and lead his new team to success.
