The Rams, on the other hand, don't own their first-round pick next season. And they just lost Matthew Stafford for the season. They could decide to screw the rival Niners by claiming Mayfield.

Seems like they could screw the 49ers over more by letting them have Mayfield

I can't really see anyone other than the 49ers picking up Mayfield. He'll be a free agent next year. I don't see Houston or LA being super excited to finish the season with a mediocre QB (even as a backup) when they've got no shot at the playoffs, but stranger things have happened.

Could he possibly be worse than Mariota?

Broncos should get him and cut Wilson

The Panthers decided going with Sam Darnold was a better option.

Just watched a video about this yesterday.


Its Over For Baker Mayfield And The Carolina Panthers...

I'm a pretty poor football fan, but I did really enjoy Browns games when it was Mayfield and Odell Beckham Jr. Even when they lost, I still liked watching the games.

I always assumed he'd be working at Home Depot by the time he was 40.

I thought he did just fine in Cleveland... but those commercials. Oh my god.

He can reject a waiver claim, can he not?  Why would he want to go to Houston or L.A.?

No chance he sniffs the playoffs, and if he goes to the Rams, he will maybe play 4 or 5 games and then Stafford will be back next year.

No, he can't

I'd like to see Houston claim him and go on a winning streak for the rest of the season.

He could just say screw it I retire.

Yep.  Looked it up.  He can retire and that's it pretty much.

Hooker with a Penis: Broncos should get him and cut Wilson


As a Packers fan, let me say its awesome knowing there is one team with a worse QB cap situation than us.

Hooker with a Penis: Broncos should get him and cut Wilson


There's a serious article on The Ringer suggesting it would not be irrational for the Broncos to cut Wilson and eat the nine-figure dead cap hit: https://www.theringer.com/nfl/2022/12/1/23487959/broncos-russell-wilson-situation-salvageable-nathaniel-hackett

I mean, if they're convinced he's not salvageable, why not rip off the band-aid and go into full rebuild mode? They can go into 2024 with massive cap space and draft capital. Sounds a lot more appealing than annually using over $50 million of cap space for a below-average QB from 2025-2028. Good organizations admit their mistakes and move on.

Super Chronic: I mean, if they're convinced he's not salvageable, why not rip off the band-aid and go into full rebuild mode?


Broncos GM George Paton is a first-time GM who hired Hackett and traded for Wilson.  He needs a scapegoat.

If he only removes one of them, when he speaks internally to ownership, he can blame that one if the Broncos improve in 2023.  He can maybe save his job.

We can presume he has to fire Hackett at the end of the season.  If he waives Wilson as well, he pretty much admits he is not competent and should be fired.

/not saying he shouldn't be fired, but he will try to save his job

You're right, of course. This is what we call the "principal-agent problem."

The Rams took him, but nobody is saying whether it was because they wanted him or wanted to bone the Niners.

ESPN saying the Rams claimed him.

Their non-Stafford QB looked baaaaaaad

It's being reported that the Niners never even submitted a waiver claim for him, so they never intended to take him even if he ended up available when it was their turn, which is super funny.

It could be about salary. Take him off waivers and you pay the remainder of the contract. Hope that he goes unclaimed and you get to negotiate a contract.

That makes sense = their turn came so late that the only folks behind them don't need a QB - Eagles, Vikes, etc
