Although the Browns and Panthers had discussed a possible trade to send Baker Mayfield, the Panthers' quarterback, to Carolina at points this offseason. However, the Panthers' demand that Mayfield's $18.8m salary be paid by the Browns has prevented anything from ever happening.
As the Panthers near the end of their offseason, that obstacle isn't going away. Jonathan Jones from CBS Sports reports that both teams are still in dialogue over a trade but that there is still a problem with Mayfield's salary.
Jones said that the Panthers would love to do something now so Mayfield can spend some time with them during the minicamp. However, there is no indication that anyone is willing to compromise on the salary front.
Mayfield was exempted from Browns' minicamp. He has not been with the team since the trade for Deshaun Watson. Sam Darnold and Matt Corral are the current quarterbacks in Carolina. The current Carolina quarterbacks are Walker and Matt Corral.
