Quarterback Baker Mayfield is moving from the Cleveland Browns to the Carolina Panthers within the NFL professional football league. This was announced by the franchise from the US state of North Carolina.
Mayfield (27) still has to pass the medical check with the Panthers before he can sign his contract.
Mayfield had recently been demoted by the Browns, and the team had committed scandal quarterback Deshaun Watson. When and if the 26-year-old will actually play for Cleveland is still open.
More than 20 women have leveled allegations against Watson for alleged sexual harassment, and while the playmaker is no longer criminally prosecuted, he still faces multiple civil lawsuits. The league also reserves the right to ban Watson. A decision on this is still pending.
Mayfield should lead the Panthers back to success, in the past four years the team missed the playoffs.
