Following another disappointing season in 2020-2021, the New York Jets had a decision to make. The organization decided to move on from starting quarterback Sam Darnold in the offseason. The move made room for Zach Wilson the team's second overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He filled the vacancy in New York as the starting quarterback, while Darnold was shipped to the Carolina Panthers in a trade.

Fast forward to the 2022 NFL Offseason. Darnold finished his first season on the Panthers' roster and has one more year on his contract.

The former Jets quarterback joined Tennessee Titans' Taylor Lewan and free agent Will Compton's podcast, “Bussin' with the Boys.” In his appearance, according to Pro Football Talk, Darnold revealed that he told the Jets they were “making a mistake” on his way out the door.

Darnold accepted his fate and began the 2021-2022 season as the Panthers' starter. However, he wasn't able to prove the Jets wrong, and his job as starting quarterback is on the line once again. Six quarterback draft prospects are expected to visit Carolina before the draft, according to PFF.

So far, it doesn't look like the Jets made the wrong decision in trading Darnold last offseason. He played in 12 games last season, recording 243 completions for 2,527 yards and nine touchdowns. Darnold also had 13 interceptions and was sacked 35 times for a total loss of 204 yards.
