NFL Rumors: Huge Update on Baker Mayfield Trade Out of Cleveland

Baker Mayfield does not want to be a member of the Cleveland Browns and he's not shy to share those feelings. It's all come down of late for the Browns quarterback after the franchise decided to send a massive trade package to the Houston Texans for Deshaun Watson who is currently dealing with over 20 allegations of sexual harassment. 

Can't blame him, right? Well, it sounds like Mayfield is going to have to wait a little bit longer to get his wish as trade talks between the Carolina Panthers and the Browns have hit a stand still. It's clear as mud, as they say, which is horrible news for Mayfield who wants out as fast as possible. According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, he's provided the latest on the ugly situation:

After two days of brief trade talks, the Carolina Panthers officially took themselves out of the Baker Mayfield pursuit on Friday. Now the Cleveland Browns are forging ahead on a path that could keep Mayfield on the roster for much longer than anticipated. The Panthers and Browns had some discussions about Mayfield on Thursday and Friday, but the two sides never quite got into the same zip code on a deal. Sources from the two teams said talks broke down over a range of factors, from mismatched trade assets, the final split of Mayfield’s $18.8 million salary, and at one point, a complication with Mayfield’s contract which needed to be reworked and approved by the NFL before any trade could have been consummated.

Sounds like with the Panthers pick of Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral in the third-round of the draft, they may have completely shifted their focus from Mayfield and the Browns are going to have to find a new suitor for their disgruntled quarterback. Let us know in the comments where you think Baker may field next season...
