The Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks reportedly “haven’t ruled out” a move to acquire quarterback Baker Mayfield from the Cleveland Browns, per The Athletic’s Jeff Howe.
Since expressing a desire to leave Cleveland, Mayfield hasn’t seen much interest from other franchises. Still, the Panthers and Seahawks are desperate to bolster their quarterback ranks following the NFL Draft.
Mayfield has a fully guaranteed salary of $18.9 million. A number that Howe reports the Browns don’t want to retain much of, making Mayfield a difficult asset for another team to buy low. The 27-year-old is also coming off surgery on his non-throwing shoulder, creating another layer of concern.
Time will tell whether he may be on the move as both franchises continue to evaluate their current quarterback situation.
