Darnold’s Rookie Contract Narrative


Recommended Posts

Pre-season hype and the no huddle uptempo offense looked amazing. The narrative was

“will we be able to build a championship during Darnold’s rookie deal?”

Now Im honestly wondering “will we have a team good enough for Darnold to want to reup here?”

If the Jets are picking very high this year, one could argue that they should consider trading Darnold for a boatload of picks and drafting another QB high.

No sense keeping Darnold if he is going to get Luck-ed, just like Siemian did.

Why is everybody worried about this rookie deal crap? 

1. The Salary Cap continues to go up every year so that mitigates the cost a bit

2. If you draft properly, then you don't have to worry about paying a ton of money to your QB.

Darnold hasn't proven anything yet, we may not even want ot re-up Darnold after his rookie contract.

100% correct.

If im the jets, im taking a qb in the 3rd or 4th round this year.  Its not time to replace darnold, but it is time to invest a mid round pick to develop.

Good idea. Macc was trying to do that during this years draft. That's the best way to rebuild, thru the draft like Miami is trying to do. The key, obviously, is making the CORRECT picks during the draft. I have more confidence in JD than Macc.

With all the holes on this team the last thing we need to do is waste another pick on a player that won't see the field.
