Maye took to Twitter shortly after news broke that Darnold would be heading to the Carolina Panthers next season to share his thoughts on the trade.
He posted a facepalm emoji, seemingly suggesting that this wasn’t the direction he believed the team should be heading in.
The Jets placed a franchise tag on Maye last month after his agent seemed to suggest there was friction between both parties over his contract in response to a tweet about the team’s surplus in cap space.
“…Yet refuse to take care of their best player, Captain, & team-voted MVP in his prime who had several All-Pro votes…and who played out his entire rookie deal and even changed positions on his contract year (after they got rid of last yrs All-Pro safety).”
Both sides will have until July 15 to agree to a long-term contract otherwise he will play on the $10.6 million tag.
The Jets’ are expected to draft BYU’s Zach Wilson with the No. 2 overall pick which will be the third quarterback in five seasons for Maye.
