CINCINNATI — Carolina spent all offseason looking for a franchise quarterback and now they have their man. The Panthers are trading for Jets quarterback Sam Darnold. 

They're sending second and fourth-round picks in 2022, along with their 2021 sixth-round pick to New York in the deal.  

This gives Darnold a fresh start with Panthers head coach Matt Rhule. The former third overall pick will have plenty of firepower to work with in Carolina. 

Christian McCaffrey is the best player on the team, but Robbie Anderson and D.J. Moore are a dynamic tandem at wide receiver. 

The Jets made this move because they plan on taking BYU quarterback Zach Wilson with the second overall pick later this month. Instead of keeping Darnold on the roster, they got what they could for the 23-year-old. 

There was talk about the Panthers moving up in the draft to take a quarterback. Now they can sit back and take the best player available with the eight pick.
