Panthers release Baker Mayfield

The Carolina Panthers released Baker Mayfield on Monday.

What It Means:

Sam Darnold will start again in Week 14 versus the Seattle Seahawks and P.J. Walker will be the backup. Mayfield set multiple career-worsts across seven games (six starts) for the Panthers this season, including a 57.8 completion percentage, 2.9% passing touchdown rate, and 5.6 adjusted yards per attempt. Despite Mayfield's poor play, there is speculation that the San Francisco 49ers might sign him after losing Jimmy Garoppolo to a season-ending foot injury.

Mayfield ranks at the very bottom of the league in EPA per play this season and he averaged a paltry 10.9 FanDuel points across six starts for the Panthers. His average depth of target (7.0 yards) also didn't do any favors for Carolina's pass-catchers.
