Earlier this offseason, the Cleveland Browns made the bold decision to trade for star quarterback Deshaun Watson.
The trade spelled the end of former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield’s time with the team. However, weeks after the trade for Watson, Mayfield remains on the Browns roster.
Will Baker finally be traded before the 2022 NFL draft kicks off? Well, ESPN analyst Matt Miller thinks the Carolina Panthers “need” to pull off a trade for Mayfield in the near future.
“Should they draft a quarterback?” Miller asked. “Absolutely not. … The move the Carolina Panthers need to make if they want to save their jobs? Trade for Baker Mayfield.”

Miller isn’t the only one connecting Baker to the Panthers.
On Friday afternoon, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport said the most likely landing spot for Mayfield is Carolina.
“I haven’t gotten any sense at all that the Seahawks are that interested,” he said during a recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show. “… “To me the Carolina Panthers seem to be the most likely spot for Baker Mayfield… The Buccaneers would make some sense to me as well.”
Where will Mayfield play next?
