The Cleveland Browns traded Baker Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers for a 2024 conditional fifth-round pick (which can become a fourth-round selection), according to a report.

Mayfield agreed to trim $3.5 million off his base salary to facilitate the trade, which will see the Browns pay the quarterback $10.5 million and Panthers roughly $5 million.

The deal is pending a physical on Thursday before becoming officially official.

Just because he helped work out the trade does not mean he is going to Carolina to be the starting quarterback.
