The Carolina Panthers are ending the Baker Mayfield experiment. Mayfield asked the team for his release on Monday morning, and the team promptly granted it. Sam Darnold appears to be the clear-cut starter from now on, with PJ Walker in the wings. Mayfield was set to become a free agent in 2023, so there is no sense in keeping him around.
The Cleveland Browns traded Mayfield to the Panthers for a 2024 conditional fifth-round pick and a salary agreement after acquiring alleged predator Deshaun Watson.
As for a new home, the top choice obviously points to the San Francisco 49ers, having lost starter Jimmy Garoppolo on Sunday to a broken foot. Other teams who could be interested (in my opinion) who could use a quarterback include Houston, New England, Indianapolis, New Orleans, or the Los Angeles Rams.
