Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has been linked to the Carolina Panthers for the past month, but no deal has been finalized.
While on The Pat McAfee Show this Friday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport had an update on the Mayfield trade market.
Rapoport revealed why the Browns were unable to send Mayfield away. It turns out his salary for the 2022 season is holding things up.
“It’s very difficult how [the Browns and Panthers] split the money,” Rapoport said. “I know there’s been some discussion. I don’t think it’s anything quite close right now.”
Mayfield will make around $18.8 million this coming season.
According to multiple reports, the Panthers want the Browns to pick up a portion of Mayfield’s salary. So far, the browns have not been willing to meet their demands.
If the Panthers can’t make a trade before Week 1, they will start Sam Darnold at quarterback. Head coach Matt Rhule confirmed that on Thursday.
Perhaps the talks between the Browns and Panthers will heat up before practice begins.
