Browns trade quarterback Baker Mayfield to Panthers
Baker Mayfield’s rocky run with Cleveland has officially ended. The Browns have traded the divisive quarterback and former No. 1 overall draft pick to the Carolina Panthers for a future draft pick.
Mayfield was pushed out of his starting job by the Browns’ pursuit of Deshaun Watson and is going to Carolina for a conditional draft pick in 2024 or 2025. The Browns are also paying $10 million of Mayfield’s $18.8 million contract for next season, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.
The trade was announced by the Panthers, who will host the Browns in next season’s opener.
