The abysmal play of Sam Darnold has had many fans questioning the future of the quarterback position for the Carolina Panthers. Well, we know one guy who probably won’t be in it.

As first reported by Darin Gantt of Panthers.com, the team released quarterback Josh Love on Tuesday. The release comes one week after Carolina signed the 25-year-old to its practice squad.

Love entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Los Angeles Rams in 2020. The San Jose University product was named the MWC Offensive Player of the Year in 2019, as he passed for 3,923 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Head coach Matt Rhule said Love’s signing, at the time, had nothing to do with Darnold’s questionable status leading into the Week 9 matchup against the New England Patriots. Love was, apparently, someone the organization “liked” well beforehand.

Unfortunately for him, Rhule and the Panthers didn’t like him enough. But they do, apparently, like offensive lineman Aaron Monteiro—who was brought back to the practice squad in place of Love.
