Sam Darnold met with the media as a member of the Carolina Panthers and the former New York Jets quarterback made comments on how his ending with his old team went down. Darnold said he had a difficult time and said that the way the Jets handled things was driving him "insane." As a planner, he said he found it very hard not knowing where he would be and that impacted how he was feeling.
David Samson reacted to these comments on his podcast, "Nothing Personal with David Samson," saying his views on player's opinions in this area has changed over time.
"The old David Samson would have given zero bleeps if a player said that," he said, but now he realizes how important a player's mental well-being is as well.
