Sam Darnold seems thrilled about his trade to a new team.
Jordan Palmer, the younger brother of former NFL quarterback Carson Palmer and currently a quarterbacks coach, shared a video on his Instagram Story Monday night. The video showed Darnold walking into a house to celebrate his trade to Carolina.
Darnold raises his arm to pump things up, indicating how happy he is. There are also Carolina Panthers-colored balloons around the room.

If you’re Darnold, how could you not be happy about the trade? Darnold dealt with injuries, mono, a flawed roster and a below-average head coach while playing for the Jets. Now he has a chance to start over anew with the Panthers. This is a second chance for Darnold, and an opportunity to prove he belongs in the NFL as a starting quarterback.
The Jets already seem to have their quarterback replacement picked out.
