Sam DarnoldQB | Jets
Sam Darnold is generating 'real interest' in trade talks, per Ian RapoportFebruary 22, 2021 | 02:13 PM
The New York Jets are planning a complete evaluation of the top picks in this year's draft before making a decision about Sam Darnold's future with the team, per Ian Rapoport.
Writer's Analysis: The Jets have this year's second overall pick, and with Trevor Lawrence likely to go to the Jaguars, the Jets could potentially snag Zak Wilson, Justin Fields, or Trey Lance. With a deep incoming class of rookie quarterbacks, it's tough to determine exactly who they are leaning towards. Darnold is heading into the fourth year of his rookie deal and with him generating interest on the trade market, there's certainly a possibility that the Jets move on and look for a new quarterback in April's draft. NFL free agency opens on March 17th this year and there should be a considerable shakeup to the league's starting quarterbacks.
