Welcome to Charlotte, Baker!
Baker Mayfield’s future in the NFL has begun.
The former Oklahoma quarterback got his wish and is no longer with Cleveland, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Wednesday afternoon that the Browns have traded Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers.
The Browns get in return a 2024 fifth-round draft pick in exchange for the 27-year-old Mayfield.
In Charlotte, Mayfield will now compete with former USC quarterback Sam Darnold, who was drafted by the New York Jets before being sent to the Panthers last year. The Panthers also drafted Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral this year.
