Panthers Trade Talks for Baker Mayfield Fell Apart Over Guaranteed Money, Drafted a QB Instead

SJ - April 30, 2022

The Panthers and Browns were in talks for Baker Mayfield on Friday night.  A deal couldn't be reached and Carolina ended up drafting quarterback Matt Corral instead.

The trade talks reportedly fell apart over the $18 million that Mayfield is due in 2022.  The Panthers wanted the Browns to pay a significant amount of that money.

This sounds like a half-hearted attempt to land Mayfield if you ask me.  If you trade for him then you would want him to stay past next season and you sign him to a new deal.

They were hoping to get him for very little money for one season.  That makes zero sense.
