The Los Angeles Rams were the lucky winners of the Baker Mayfield sweepstakes after he was put on waivers by the Carolina Panthers on Monday.
While he's not expected to start on Thursday night, Mayfield reportedly went straight to LA, playbook in hand and ready to learn the offense. The Rams placed starting quarterback Matthew Stafford on injured reserve after a series of injuries; backup John Wolford is also injured, leaving Bryce Perkins at the position.
While Los Angeles is all but done as far as the playoff race goes, and Mayfield hasn't exactly lit it up in the NFL, this is the best roster he's been a part of thus far. It'll be interesting to see what comes of this move long-term.
Despite a few other teams potentially needing someone at the QB position, the Rams were the only team to put in a waiver claim for Mayfield.
