Emily Mayfield, Baker’s wife, talks about their’most confusing’ year while the quarterback is going to the Rams

Emily Mayfield said an emotional farewell to the “weirdest, most confused year” on Instagram after her husband, Baker Mayfield, was waived by the Panthers on Monday and then acquired by the Rams off waivers.

Emily commented on Tuesday’s Instagram Story, “Feeling thankful tonight” “For the tornado, the mayhem, the insanity. I’m grateful for the chance to accompany my best friend on this once-in-a-lifetime roller coaster journey.

“I am extremely appreciative of our stay in Charlotte. I met some Great individuals and fell in love with an incredible place. You will definitely see us more, CLT!”

According to her Instagram bio, Emily is eager to return to Los Angeles, where she formerly resided.

Emily Mayfield, the wife of quarterback Baker Mayfield, sends a parting letter to Charlotte following her husband’s release from the Panthers and subsequent waiver claim by the Rams on December 6, 2022.

“As for LA… “I’m prepared for you!” she said. “It’s been a while. I am a PROUD Nebraskan, but Los Angeles also owns a portion of my heart. It will be nice to return!

“And last, Bake, I’m a very proud wife! It has been the strangest, most perplexing, difficult, and soul-searching year of my life. But what’s most important is that we did it together and with God at the heart. I am quite pleased with where we are and where we are going. I am grateful for the man you have become and the grace with which you manage hardship. Can’t wait to cheer for you in race #17! Go Rams!”

Mayfield, the first overall choice in the 2018 NFL Draft, was traded from the Browns to the Panthers in July. It occurred four months after the quarterback demanded a trade in March, after the Browns’ pursuit of Deshaun Watson.

The 27-year-old was dismissed by the Panthers on Monday in a mutual agreement, according to interim head coach Steve Wilks.

Wilks stated that Mayfield requested to be released after realizing he was no longer in Carolina’s quarterback plans, adding that “things didn’t work out.”

The Rams will inherit $1.35 million remaining on Mayfield’s deal. After starting quarterback Matthew Stafford was placed on injured reserve Saturday with a spinal cord injury, Los Angeles was in need of quarterback depth. John Wolford and Bryce Perkins presently lead the Rams’ quarterback depth chart.

The defending Super Bowl champions are 3-9 and must make important offseason decisions. The future of Stafford will be a crucial piece of the jigsaw.

The 34-year-old quarterback has been out since suffering a neck injury in Week 11 against the Saints. Stafford is eligible to return from IR in Week 17, but Rams head coach Sean McVay believes there is a “good probability” he will not play again this season.

McVay responded “no” when asked if the injury is long-lasting.

Mayfield might play when the Rams meet the Raiders on Thursday night. Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN claimed that the Rams were mailing Mayfield the playbook to review on his journey to Los Angeles.

Six consecutive losses for the Rams.
