After a week off for the July 4 holiday, we’re back on WISE Sports Radio with some NFL and movie talk mixed in with our usual baseball chatter.
The Carolina Panthers get Baker Mayfield after waiting until the Cleveland Browns couldn’t wait to trade him any longer. Are the Baltimore Orioles on the rise? Which players were snubbed from the 2022 Major League Baseball All-Star Game rosters? And a quick review of Thor: Love and Thunder. (Longer version here, if interested.)
I should’ve had this on hand while on the air, but Mayfield’s $4.8 million salary with the Panthers is a bit higher than most NFL back-up quarterbacks. Denver’s Teddy Bridgewater will make $6.5 million. But to name a few examples (via the invaluable Spotrac), Taylor Heinicke will get $3.1 million with Washington, while New Orleans’ Andy Dalton and Pittsburgh’s Mason Rudolph will each get $3 million this season.
