ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the New York Jets are sending QB Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a 2021 sixth-round pick, a 2022 second-round pick, and a 2022 fourth-round pick. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network adds that the Panthers were "the best and sole suitor" for Darnold. Carolina made it no secret that they were interested in landing a quarterback upgrade this offseason. The original plan of going after Deshaun Watson has taken a turn, so the Panthers pivoted to getting a young QB on the cheap. If Darnold is going to revive his career then landing with Matt Rhule and Carolina's skill players is a good start. This could be a fantasy friendly offense if the former No. 3 overall pick is able to turn things around.
