The Rams got Baker Mayfield off waivers, and he might play against the Raiders on Thursday.

A quarterback who battled mightily in Carolina is going to the Rams.

The Rams receive $1.35 million of Mayfield's contract by claiming him.

Keep in mind that Mayfield received around $10.5 million from the Browns out of

his guaranteed $18.86 million contract to sit out this season.

It serves as a warning story for any organization that is unsure whether to

exercise a player's fifth-year option. The Rams have five games remaining to

assess Mayfield and decide whether they want to re-sign him as Stafford's backup.

If Baker Mayfield participates, he will also have the opportunity to

showcase his improved tape and pique the interest of other teams.
