Baker Mayfield traded to Panthers following a lengthy Browns story

The Browns have picked an alternative team for Baker Mayfield.

Cleveland has agreed to trade the quarterback with the Panthers for a fifth-round conditional 

selection in 2024, the Panthers announced. The Panthers will play the Browns in Week 1 of this season.

NFL Network reports that the Browns have agreed to pay $10.5 million from Mayfield's contract 

The Panthers pay the signal-caller $5 million. Mayfield was willing to cut $3.5 million from  

his 2022 contract. He's scheduled to become unemployed after the season.

Mayfield had been looking for an exchange following the Browns bought Deshaun Watson, 

who was previously with the Texans and offered him an unrestricted five-year.
