Will the Jets trade Sam Darnold? You Can Bet On It
The New York Jets are a disaster. They are off to another horrible start and there is every reason to believe that this team will be lucky to get a few wins on the season. The Jets decided to stick with Adam Gase and part ways with players like Levon Bell. It is hard to know what this team will do next. Will the next move be to trade Sam Darnold?
Trade deadline looming
With the trade deadline on the horizon, it is fair to suggest that the Jets can make a trade. They are going to be connected to a quarterback in the draft and that means that they can part ways with Darnold. If that is not enticing enough for the Jets, recent reports indicate that they would be able to get back a 1st-round pick in exchange for Darnold.

Phillip Rivers is struggling early as a member of the Indianapolis Colts. That is a curious spot for Darnold if the Jets decide to make a trade.
Bring Sam Darnold to the Colts next year.

Final Answer: Will the Jets trade Sam Darnold?
This is a big YES! The Jets are losing and they are going nowhere fast. All the moves get pinned on head coach Adam Gase who will surely be fired when the season is over. The organization can trade Darnold and let Gase take the heat. Then they can draft a quarterback and start to rebuild with the draft picks they acquire in the trade for Darnold.
It may seem like a long shot now, but the Jets will trade Sam Darnold. You can bet on it!
