Sam Darnold traded to Panthers

Sam Darnold trade

The New York Jets have traded quarterback Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a sixth round in 2021. They also sent over second and fourth round selections in 2022.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Monday afternoon.

The third-year quarterback was in limbo up until this trade. The Jets had a chance to take another, younger quarterback with the second overall selection, but still had Darnold on his rookie contract. There was much speculation whether the team would keep Darnold for their rebuild and trade the second overall pick for a king’s ransom, or trade him to double down on the brand new era of Jets football.

In the end, a deal was struck with the Carolina Panthers, who did not figure Teddy Bridgewater to be their QB of the future. Bridgewater is still under contract with Carolina, which could mean he could serve as a backup to Darnold if he turns out to be unsalvageable.

The Jets recouped a reasonable haul for their damaged goods and will likely take BYU’s Zach Wilson in the end. On the other hand, the Panthers have a chance to look like geniuses while not giving up too much capital in return.
