As part of its ongoing offensive line overhaul, the Panthers signed right-guard Austin Corbett to an initial three-year contract. Corbett didn't know that he would be reunited with Baker Mayfield when he signed the deal.
Corbett played 14 games in the 2018 Browns second-round selection. This was the same draft that made Mayfield the No. Corbett was the No. 1 overall pick.
Corbett described Wednesday's trade by the Panthers for Mayfield as "pretty exciting".
Corbett said that Baker is a special character because of his energy. He is all about winning in everything he does. He is determined to win in all aspects of his life.
It's a great way to get him in a room with other guys and feel the competition. This will definitely raise our team's performance. It's a great pick.
Mayfield will need to defeat Sam Darnold who was the third overall pick in the 2018 draft, along with Corbett and Mayfield. P.J. and Matt Corral are rookies for the Panthers. Walker.
