The situation between the Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns has gotten murkier.

The Browns are desperately attempting to find any team that will take Baker Mayfield off their hands, but so far, no team has been willing to trade for the former first overall pick. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Carolina has been viewed as a likely landing spot, and there’s been a ton of chatter about trade discussions. However, it sounds like conversations might not really be happening like people thought.

During a Wednesday interview with Pat McAfee, Peter Schrager said “Carolina hasn’t expressed any interest” in snatching up the former Oklahoma star, but noted it would be a ton of sense if they did.

At this point, I have no idea what the hell is going on. One day, we hear the Panthers are interested in trading for Mayfield. Next, there’s apparently no interest.

Seriously, does anyone know what is going on between Mayfield, the Browns and the rest of the league?

Now, should the Panthers trade for Mayfield? As I’ve said before, the answer to that in my mind is simple, and the answer is absolutely not.

They drafted Matt Corral out of Ole Miss, and he has serious upside. Will bringing in Mayfield hurt or help his development? In my mind the answer is obviously the former.

We’ll see what happens, but the Panthers should absolutely not trade for Mayfield. It’s simply not worth it.
