The Los Angeles Rams removed Baker Mayfield from the waiver wire on Tuesday.
The former Cleveland Browns No. 1 overall pick who was released by the Carolina Panthers this week will not have his No. 6 relative with LA.
Derion Kendrick already uses that single digit, so that means the Rams and Mayfield had to go in a different digit direction.
When Los Angeles hosts the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday, Mayfield will wear the number 17.

The Rams made sure the Oklahoma Heisman winner had plenty to do on his flight to Los Angeles. He received his playbook and was expected to study and possibly see action on Thursday.
With the addition of Mayfield, the Rams’ quarterback room now consists of him, John Wolford (sore neck, day-to-day), Bryce Perkins and Case Cookus (practice squad). Starter Matthew Stafford (neck) was placed on Injured Reserve last week and is currently dealing with a spinal cord concussion.
