He also fumbled a couple snaps, which fits too well with his pre-draft turnover concerns but means little else.
Another fumbled snap by Sam Darnold. This time it was on him. Relax, people, it’s only a rookie minicamp. #Jets

Darnold joins a Jets team that also has veterans Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Hackenberg on the roster. It’s expected he’ll start the season behind McCown, learning from a seasoned player who’s seen his share of different situations in the NFL and offers a wealth of wisdom for the former USC star.
