Sam Darnold is excited to be at Carolina but said it was bittersweet being traded from the Jets who drafted him: "For me, anytime you go somewhere and set lofty goals and those goals aren't met that's always tough . . . for me. When I heard the news they wanted to trade me it was tough. . . . Anytime you're not wanted somewhere that's a tough pill to swallow.''
