Many wished for the Jets to move on from Sam Darnold ahead of the 2021 season and draft BYU’s Zach Wilson at No. 2 overall. Others believed the organization could’ve rolled the dice with the young quarterback and made moves to improve his supporting cast.
Of course, the former scenario became reality when the Jets sent Darnold to Carolina for three draft picks, clearing the way for the team to acquire Wilson.
But regardless of your desired route, most would agree Darnold didn’t have much help around him in Florham Park, both on the field and on the sideline.
