Darnold's struggles could spur interest in Watson trade

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Seven games into Sam Darnold's tenure with the Carolina Panthers there are serious concerns about his ability to develop into the team's quarterback of the future.

The slumping Darnold, who has thrown seven interceptions during the team's four-game losing streak, was benched in the second half of Carolina's 25-3 road loss to the New York Giants on Sunday raising speculation whether the Panthers might reconsider trading for Deshaun Watson.

The Panthers have viewed the potential asking price for Watson as too steep in the past, but Darnold's lack of progression - and owner David Tepper's desire for a proven quarterback to lead the franchise forward - could prompt Carolina to make a move before the Nov. 2 trade deadline.
