The Jets Have Traded Sam Darnold to the Panthers for Three Draft Picks

SJ - April 5, 2021

Why?  Not why are the Jets trading Sam Darnold, but why are the Panthers trading for him?

The Panthers were desperate to trade for a quarterback.  I don't think anyone knew they were three draft picks for Sam Darnold desperate to make a move.

This move all but ends the Teddy Bridgewater era in Carolina.  A very bizarre move to say the least.  It was bizarre to sign Bridgewater to a three-year, $63 million deal in the first place.

It's even nuttier to trade for another quarterback when you still have him under contract for two more years and $39 million left on his deal, including $10 million fully guaranteed in 2021.

Something tells me this is a move pushed down from the very top.  And as a Panthers fan, I hate this fucking move and I'm really starting to hate this fucking team.
