It’s been a pretty eventful week for Baker Mayfield.
On Monday, the former #! overall pick in the draft was released by the Carolina Panthers after a terrible season that saw him get demoted to the team’s third option at QB.
Sources: The #Panthers are expected to release QB Baker Mayfield. He'll hit waivers when it's finalized later today.

Luckily for Baker, he was picked up by the Rams, who are in dire need of a QB now that Matt Stafford is out for the season.

“And lastly, Bake, I’m one proud wife kid! It’s been the weirdest, most confusing, challenging, soul-searching year of my life. But the important thing is, we’ve done it together & with God at our center. I’m really proud of where we are, and where we’re headed. Thankful for the man you are today, and how you handle adversity with nothing but grace! Can’t wait to cheer you on #17! Go Rams!”
