Baker Mayfield’s Wife Emily Takes to Instagram After Waiver Claim
It’s been quite the year for Baker Mayfield and his wife Emily.
The Panthers released Mayfield on Monday after he had played seven games for them. The Rams picked him up off waivers on Tuesday, and now he already has the chance to play in the Rams‘ Thursday Night Football matchup vs. the Raiders.
Emily shared a summary of the “craziness” the Mayfields have experienced this year on Tuesday night’s Instagram story after the quarterback was claimed to them by the Rams.
“Feeling grateful tonight,” Emily said. “For the whirlwind and chaos, the madness. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to be with my best friend on this rollercoaster ride. Our time in Charlotte was a wonderful experience. I met amazing people and fell in love with this city. CLT You will see more of us CLT Emily sounds excited about the couple’s future together in Los Angeles.
“As far as LA… I’m ready to help you!” Emily wrote. It’s been too long. Although I am a proud Nebraska girl, LA holds a large part of my heart. It will be great to be back!
” And lastly, Bake! I’m a proud wife kid! It’s been the most challenging, confusing, challenging, and soul-searching year in my life. The important thing is that we did it together and with God at our core. I am proud of where we are and where we are headed. I am thankful for the man that you are today and how you have handled adversity with grace! Can’t wait to cheer you on #17! Go Rams!”
Mayfield was seen on the Rams practice field on Wednesday, but the team hasn’t officially announced whether the quarterback will take the field at all or not on Thursday night.
