Well, the Baker Mayfield experiment for the Carolina Panthers didn't go as planned. Mayfield was brought in to take over the starting quarterback job and make some moves for the offense. Now, Mayfield is already on his way out of town.

On Monday morning, it was announced that the Panthers had released the former No. 1 overall pick. This felt like it was only a matter of time from going down. Now, Mayfield will see if anyone picks him up off waivers.

A team like the San Francisco 49ers would make a ton of sense for Mayfield, as Jimmy Garoppolo is out for the year with a broken foot. Keep an eye on SF for Mayfield.
