Browns trading Baker Mayfield to Panthers for 2024 conditional fifth-round draft pick


Go Buckeyes
Baker Mayfield's saga in Cleveland finally has a resolution: He's headed to Charlotte.

The Browns and Panthers have agreed to a trade that sends Mayfield to Carolina in exchange for a 2024 conditional fifth-round pick (which can become a fourth-round selection), NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Wednesday. The deal is pending a physical. Carolina later announced the acquisition.

Cleveland will pay Mayfield $10.5 million this season, saving over $8 million in cash and salary-cap space, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported. Carolina, meanwhile, will pay the fifth-year QB around $5 million. Mayfield, who was originally owed $18.858 million, agreed to a $3.5 million pay cut, but can earn back what he gave up in incentives.

If Watson doesn't start, does that make Mayfield the Browns highest paid QB on the field?
Just one thing, Mayfield has to beat out Sam Darnold. Coming off of injury, it’s no sure thing Baker is Carolina’s week 1 starter.

Great observation that if Baker does play week 1 he could very well be the highest paid QB by the Browns.
