The Rams have requested quarterback Baker Mayfield from the Carolina Panthers for waivers, the team said Tuesday afternoon.
Mayfield, the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL draft, was released Monday after failing to rekindle a career that began with the Cleveland Browns.
The Rams were third in the waiver priority due to their 3-9 record.
Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is on injured reserve and is expected to be out for the rest of the season. Backup John Wolford is suffering from a neck injury and is likely to leave Bryce Perkins to face the Las Vegas Raiders at SoFi Stadium on Thursday night.
Mayfield, 27, has had six touchdowns with six interceptions this season.
