A few days back, the Carolina Panthers announced the departure of their star quarterback, Baker Mayfield. Now, the Rams announced the signing of Mayfield, which shocked everyone. Notably, Mayfield has been pretty poor this season, as the Panthers are also having a forgettable season. On the other hand, last season’s Super Bowl champion, the Rams have plenty of injury concerns, which probably forced them to make this signing.

Notably, the Rams’ QB Matthew Stafford will most likely miss the remainder of the season due to a spinal cord contusion. So Mayfield will certainly have some game time under the head coach Sean McVay. However, NFL fans, particularly the Rams fans, bashed the franchise to sign Mayfield.
