NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Jets have traded quarterback Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers.

It ends a stint in New York for Darnold that was marked by a few flashes of brilliance, inconsistent play and unfortunate injuries.

And with the Jets holding the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft, they’re moving on to another young signal-caller who might deliver the team back to respectability.

New York announced acquired a sixth-round pick in this year’s draft and second- and fourth-round picks in the 2022 draft.
