Why the Browns-Panthers Baker Mayfield Trade Fell Apart, per Report

Recommended Posts

Last weekend, the Panthers and Browns seemed to be trending toward a Mayfield trade. However, ESPN’s Jake Trotter reports that the two sides were never close to completing the deal. According to Trotter, neither side wanted to pay the majority of Mayfield’s nearly $19 million salary he is set to make in 2022.

By not finding a middle ground to pay the money, Carolina decided to trade up and select Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral in the third round instead.

I mean the Browns are either going to pay most of it or all of it. That was possibly their last chance to avoid having to cut him and eating all the salary. They'll probably just keep him for now and hope someone gets injured in camp.

The Rams had to give up multiple first round picks to get the Lions to take on Goff's salary, given the current situation, do the Browns seriously believe anyone is going to take Baker on and pay anything above the minimum salary of that contract?

I love how poorly they handled this, very Browns like, in the end I think they have to cut him and get nothing for him after all this.
