    The Carolina Panthers seemingly found their starting quarterback for the 2021 season, pulling off a trade with the New York Jets for Sam Darnold. While the former No. 3 pick will get a fresh start this year in Carolina, it seems his arrival doesn't rule out a draft-day surprise.

    It's no secret that the Panthers coveted an upgrade over Teddy Bridgewater this spring. They offered the No. 8 pick in a trade package for Matthew Stafford that was rejected. Team owner David Tepper also made a strong push for a Deshaun Watson trade. The front office got aggressive with its pursuit, but sexual assault and harassment allegations against Watson derailed any hopes for a deal.

    Carolina ultimately settled for Darnold, sending its 2022 second- and fourth-round picks along with a 2021 sixth-round selection for the 23-year-old quarterback. While Darnold is excited to suit up in this offense, the Panthers haven't closed the door on drafting a quarterback for the future.

    According to The Athletic's Joseph Person, the Panthers are intrigued by Ohio State star Justin Fields. He is the only quarterback who is catching the club's attention, with the front office reportedly not enthralled with Mac Jones or Trey Lance.
