QB Sam Darnold excited to be where he's 'wanted' in Carolina

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) When Sam Darnold came to the Jets as the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 draft his goal was to spend the next 20 years in New York and win a lot of Super Bowls.

That made being traded to the Carolina Panthers after just three non-playoff seasons all the more difficult to accept for the 23-year-old quarterback.

"Anytime you go somewhere and you set lofty goals and those goals aren't met, that's tough," Darnold said Monday in his first interview since joining the Panthers. "When I heard the news that they wanted to trade me, it was tough. Anytime you are not wanted somewhere that is a tough pill to swallow."
