The Los Angeles Rams announced earlier this week they have claimed and been awarded quarterback Baker Mayfield off waivers. “He’s got a lot of experience “Said tight end Tyler Higbee. Excited to see what he can do for us.”
Mayfield, 27, began the 2022 season with the Carolina Panthers after they acquired him in a trade with the Cleveland Browns this summer. He completed 119 of 206 pass attempts for 1,313 yards with six touchdowns with six interceptions while starting in six of the seven games he played in.
With the addition of Mayfield, the Rams quarterback room now consists of him, John Wolford, Bryce Perkins and Case Cookus (practice squad). Starter Matthew Stafford (neck) was placed on Injured Reserve last week and is currently dealing with a spinal cord contusion. Rams head coach Sean McVay on Monday said Wolford is dealing with neck soreness and considered day-to-day.
