Jason Smith: “If Baker Mayfield was someone to get a team to the playoffs, somebody would have done it. The NFL told all of us, every single team, what it thinks of Baker Mayfield. He has been available for months, and not for a big cost, they weren’t holding out, they were gonna cut the guy! Finally, the Panthers, cause they’re even more desperate than a team like the Jets, they go get Baker Mayfield...why not? Why shouldn’t the Panthers get Baker Mayfield? Sam Darnold stinks! Of course go get Baker Mayfield!”
Mike Harmon: “The one thing that may come into play here, if you wanna add something that could be a positive in all of the “if” statements...once upon a time, this guy was a walk on. Once upon a time, he had to transfer.  It was all “prove it”. Well, that’s where he’s at now. He’s gotta prove that he’s got value.”

On today’s edition of The Jason Smith Show with Mike Harmon, Jason and Mike explain why everyone needs to relax and take a deep breath with their reactions to the Baker Mayfield trade, as there must be a reason he was available for months with no takers!
