Traded to Carolina
Carolina agreed Wednesday to acquire Mayfield from Cleveland in exchange for a 2024 conditional fifth-round draft pick, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.
The deal, which is pending a physical, sets the stage for Mayfield to join a quarterback room that also includes Sam Darnold. The two thus are in line to compete for the Panthers' starting job this summer, while Jacoby Brissett profiles as the clear-cut No. 2 option behind Deshaun Watson in Cleveland.
