Baker Mayfield’s time with the Carolina Panthers is coming to an end.
The 27-year-old midfielder is expected to be released from the team. It was reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network Monday and “it will cancel after it finishes later today.”
It’s been a rough season for Mayfield, the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, who landed with the Panthers after being traded to the Browns in July.
Mayfield started the first five games for the woeful Panthers, who fired head coach Matt Rhule in October after two and a half seasons. While he was out, he lost the starting job to PJ Walker. Now Sam Darnold has taken over as head coach of the Panthers.
Through seven games this season, Mayfield has completed 57.8 percent of his passes for 1,313 yards and six touchdowns against six interceptions.
