Marcus Maye apparently not a fan of the Sam Darnold trade

USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback Sam Darnold will get a fresh start after the Jets sent him to the Panthers via trade on Monday.

But apparently not everyone was happy about the move.

Just after news broke that Darnold would be heading south, Jets safety Marcus Maye made his displeasure with the deal known on social media.

Maye’s tweet was short but effective — a simple facepalm emoji.

Maye played alongside Darnold for the last three seasons, but will likely be getting a new quarterback at No. 2 overall in the draft later this month. Maye recently signed his franchise tender to get under contract with New York for 2021.

    0 chance the Jets take a qb at no. 3…now no. 2 where the Jets are actually slotted to and will draft is a different story…

  2. lol!!

    He’s their best player on D. That’s how bad they are and will continue to be.

  3. Last year they got rid of their two best defensive players, and now they just gave away a franchise QB for free. Oh yes, I’m sure the Jets’ players are overjoyed with all these moves.

    Jets taking Wilson. It is a done deal….. Your logic makes ZERO sense. If they were going to trade that #2 pick and kept Darnold. i will save your original post of ZERO chance and be back after the draft..

  5. If I were Zach Wilson I’d pull an Eli Manning. Tell the Jets publicly there’s zero chance he’ll play for them.

    Now that would be entertainment!

  6. Message to Maye: Get out while you can. The Jets are a franchise going nowhere, and the next QB isn’t going to fare any better if the Jets execute the same plan they did with Darnold. Namely, they did *nothing* to add NFL-caliber talent to the offense, gave Darnold terrible coaches, and expected him to carry the franchise all by himself.

    Seems reading comprehension failed you. Before the article was changed it stated the jets were picking a qb at 3 which is unlikely since they pick 2nd in the draft. Does that help you understand? Going by your 1 upvote comment and currently 35 down votes everyone but you understood, even Myles changed his article.

    Really? Darnold is a franchise QB? What’s your criteria? Not defending the Jets ineptitude, but they got more than any prediction for what Darnold was worth and a lot more than they would have gotten when the opted not to pay him 25 mil / year on a new contract.
