If Baker Mayfield is traded to the Carolina Panthers, it won’t be until at least Friday.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says it’s not a given that the Panthers will acquire the quarterback from the Cleveland Browns and that if they do, it won’t be until Thursday’s first round of the draft .
Rapoport says Panthers are considering all their options as they hold 6and selection in total, including that of drafting a quarterback like Malik Willis or Kenny Pickett.
The Panthers went 5-12 last season as Sam Darnold, Cam Newton and PJ Walker each got starts.
Mayfield has been in the trade market since the Browns acquired Deshaun Watson from the Houston Texans in the offseason.
