Panthers reportedly have ‘inside track’ to acquire Baker Mayfield

As Baker Mayfield’s future hangs in the balance following the Browns’ acquisition of Deshaun Watson, one AFC South franchise is reportedly emerging as the disgruntled QB’s top suitor.

The Panthers are believed to have the “inside track” to land the former No. 1 pick over “several interested teams,” via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. Carolina currently has two signal-callers on the roster: incumbent starter Sam Darnold and backup PJ Walker.

Saturday’s report aligns with recent comments made by the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on the Pat McAfee Show regarding updates on potential Mayfield landing spots.

“To me, the Carolina Panthers seem to be the most likely spot for Baker Mayfield, or maybe a team that brings him in as a big-time, high-money backup,” Rapoport said Friday.
