Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield had his fifth-year option exercised Friday, April 23. The deal extends him through 2022, and he'll earn $18.86 million that season.
Per PFT - they restructured his deal before the trade - dropping the last year of his deal - which was $21 million for 2022 and splitting the $10 million salary for this year. Makes this a one year rental for Denver, so taking a Qb in this draft still an option?CAR - Panthers sending Qb Teddy Bridgewater to Denver for 6th round pick. Carolina also will pay part of his 2021 salary.
