While Sam Darnold may excel on the soccer field, he does need a little practice before an easel.
Back in May, Darnold's NFL team, the Carolina Panthers, asked him to draw various things for a TikTok video. After nailing a sun and a bear, the quarterback adopted the Panthers logo: a growling version of their big cat mascot, Sir Purr.
The resulting illustration - made with only a black marker - was fairly straightforward, though Darnold seemed triumphant.
Now, months later, the Panthers had a surprise for the 24-year-old athlete: They replaced the actual team logo with a drawing on the side of his helmet.

This is Darnold's first season with the Panthers. He spent 2018-2020 with the New York Jets, which placed him third overall.
On Sunday he started for the Panthers for the first time and helped them win 19:14 against his former team.

Later, during a press conference, Darnold said that "seeing the jets on the other side" was a little different for me.
But the focus on beating his former team-mates was forgotten as the game progressed, he explained: "We were just trying to do our best and that was it."
