Sam Darnold News

  • Sam Darnold a free agent · Jan 20, 2023

    Sam Darnold is a free agent in 2023

    Somehow Darnold is only entering his age-26 season and finds himself a free agent in one of the best quarterback markets in recent history. To his credit, while the Carolina experiment failed early, the young veteran returned late in 2022 and guided the team to a 4-2 record, throwing for 1,143 yards and seven touchdowns to three interceptions. The Panthers are certain to address their need early in 2023, potentially via the NFL Draft and while it's not out of the question Darnold could sign a short-term deal to allow a rookie to be groomed, we imagine he'll look for a longer-term opportunity. In any case, there remains little optimism the unranked quarterback is able to revive his career.

  • Sam Darnold will start · Nov 23, 2022

    Carolina quarterback Sam Darnold will start on Sunday against Denver.

    The Panthers have clearly seen enough of Baker Mayfield and PJ Walker this season, so Darnold will get his chance at the helm yet again. It's been an awful season for Carolina, who still doesn't seem to have an answer in a post-Cam Newton era. Darnold would need to end the season on a tear to have any chance of returning as the starter next year, a situation that seems highly unlikely. Even as a starter, he's still off the dynasty radar at the moment.

  • Sam Darnold exits on cart · Aug 27, 2022

    Panthers backup quarterback Sam Darnold exited the team's final preseason game on a cart

    The only good news for Darnold is that it appears he only suffered a high ankle sprain and will not be lost for the season. An MRI is scheduled for today. With Mayfield clearly the starter for 2022, Darnold now returns to limbo and his best hope for a return to starter-status, however remote it may seem at this juncture, remains with a new team in 2023. He could be considered among the top available backup quarterbacks and, as such, may have one more shot at competing for a starting role in 2023. Sam Darnold is listed as DLF's QB39 and is about to fall from the dynasty radar altogether.
