  Jets | Coach optimistic about Sam Darnold    Sun Jan 17, 12:51 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold's status with the team is uncertain, but head coach Robert Saleh believes Darnold has some untapped potential after watching tape on him.

Footballguys view: Darnold did not play up to expectations under former head coach Adam Gase. It appears like he's going to get a chance to turn things around this year under the Jets new regime.

  Jets | Sam Darnold likely to return    Fri Jan 15, 02:11 AM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold is likely to be the team's starting quarterback next season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who said he would be 'surprised' if Darnold was not the team's Week 1 starter.

Footballguys view: The Jets have the no.2 overall pick so they can get some much-needed help on the offensive line with Oregon OT Penei Sewell. Better protection for Darnold and a better direction under new head coach Robert Saleh should lead to better numbers from the passing game.

  Jets | Sam Darnold could still be QB1 in 2021    Mon Jan 11, 01:36 AM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold is viewed internally as 'good enough to build around,' in the opinion of ESPN's Todd McShay, who said that GM Joe Douglas is unlikely to draft a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft.

Footballguys view: According to PFF, Darnold faced the highest pressure rate of any quarterback in the NFL this season. It would be interesting to see what Darnold would look like under a new head coach and with better protection around him. It might be too early to give up on the former top-5 pick.

  Jets | NYJ ends up season on negative note    Sun Jan 3, 05:19 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 23-of-34 passes for 266 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 17 against the New England Patriots. RB Josh Adams led the way with 11 runs for 47 yards and a score, while RB Ty Johnson ran 11 times for 45 yards. WR Breshad Perriman led the way with 84 yards on three receptions, while WR Jamison Crowder ended up with four receptions for 31 yards on his four targets. WR Braxton Berrios rushed twice for 16 yards and had three catches for 20 yards. WR Denzel Mims had just one grab for 15 yards on two targets. S Marcus Maye ended his season with 10 tackles, including one for loss.

Footballguys view: The Jets will be in the market for a new head coach, and maybe a new quarterback since they have the #2 pick. Sam Darnold's fate will be one of the most compelling stories of the offseason.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 16-of-32 passes for 175 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 agaisnt the Cleveland Browns and he added seven runs for 20 yards.

Footballguys view: The best Darnold can hope for is to be traded to a better organization in the offseason as the Jets will have the #2 pick in a quarterback class with more than just Trevor Lawrence to offer the league. Justin Fields (Ohio State) is a top candidate to go at #2.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.

Footballguys view: Darnold should be back as the starter for the Jets this week. Against the Dolphins, that's not a great matchup for the young quarterback. He's a QB3 in Week 12..which means nobody is starting him.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) will start Sunday, Nov. 29, against the Miami Dolphins barring any setbacks, head coach Adam Gase said Friday.

Footballguys view: This is good news for Jamison Crowder, but bad for Breshad Perriman, who riffed much better with his former Ravens teammate and fearless downfield passer Joe Flacco. The first time around this year, the Dolphins shut out Flacco and the Jets.
