Baker Mayfield, the new Panthers quarterback, will continue to be paid by Cleveland this season. He'll actually get more from Browns than the Panthers.
Mayfield, who was previously due $18.86million from the Browns for this season, has now agreed to a revised contract that lowers that amount for Cleveland.
According to Mike Garafolo, NFL Network, Mayfield will now be paid $10.5 million by the Browns, while the Panthers will give him $5 million. He will also agree to restructure the contract to avoid guaranteed salary.
According to the report, Mayfield could still earn $18.86million if he meets certain incentives.
Mayfield will now be counted as $10.5 million towards the Browns' salary cap for this season. The remainder will be counted against the Panthers’ cap.
