It finally happened. The Carolina Panthers traded for quarterback Baker Mayfield for a Cleveland Browns conditional fifth-round pick.
The Panthers only pay $5 million of Mayfield's 2022 salary, while the Browns will pay more than twice that to get him out of town ($10.5 million). As a result, Cleveland will go into September with Jacoby Brissett as their starting quarterback, assuming Deshaun Watson will be suspended at the start of the season.
And to make things more interesting? The Browns and Panthers play each other in Week One.
