ESPN’s Kimberley A. Martin said on “Get Up!” Monday morning that she spoke with three NFL general managers about the trade market for Darnold, and they all said they would not be willing to give up more than a third-round pick. One of the reasons for that is Darnold could turn out to be a one-year rental. In order to keep him for two seasons without re-signing him, a team would have to pick up the nearly $19 million fifth-year option on Darnold’s rookie contract.

if they didnt bring back Ben then Darnold made sense.  now darnold would likely not get any game time , so how do you evaluate if he is worth paying more for the 5th year option ?

nobody in their right mind would give up a 2nd for him. you might as well use that 2nd and draft Trask.
plus darnold carries a 9.8 million cap hit this year. where does that money come from ?
I just don't think he's good, either.  My opinion, Mason Rudolph is better than him, and its not real close.

im willing to give young players the benefit of the doubt (depending on the cost) if they are on a team full of suck.ryan tannenhill was considered a bust in miami , now he looks like a top 10 QB.    
All good and fine, but Darnold wasn't on a sucky team in college.  And he still threw a shit-ton of INT's.  I know the Jets are a dumpster fire, but Darnold has never been anywhere near as good as his hype.
did he ? he averaged 11 picks a season ( 2 years 22 ints ) big ben averaged 11.3 (3 years 34 int) ...deshawm watson averaged 10.6...3 years 32 ints) ..patrick mahomes 9.6 (3yrs 29ints )...drew brees 10.5 ...dan marino 17.25 affraid

And yet...I'm still right about Sam Darnold, go figure.

Big Ben played for a middling MAC team that wasn't good before him and hasn't been good since him. 37 TD's and 10 INT's his final season with crap around him and he carried the team. And a passer rating about 20 points higher. And his stats rapidly improved every year (plus he was very new to the QB position, didn't play it in high school until his senior year.

Darnolds stats got worse not better. 13 INT's his senior year to 26 TD's. Playing for USC with good receivers.

Mahomes, 41 TD's to 10 INT's his senior year.

I wouldn't mind dropping a 3rd round pick for Darnold. That would give us Haskins, Darnold, and Rudolph with all of them having at least 1 year of learning under their belt of Canadas system and time with the team. One of those QBs should be able to fill in for Ben they all 3 have cannons for arms and all of them got a lot of high marks from the draft gurus. I dont give a flying fuck what Haskins did or didn't do in Washington as well as what Darnold did in New York both of those teams are garbage.

Tell all 3 the #1 spot is up for grabs and whoever shows up looking prepared, shows good leadership skills, and can score TDs and minimize picks gets the job. The other two as back ups is a nice place to be in as well...

Agree, SteelerF. Except only 2 spots available, we still have Ben. So one of them wouldn't make the roster.

Honestly I'd rather have Dobbs than either of the two we just got.

Normally I'd say another camp body. But with COVID hosing up last year's workouts, there were guys who never really got noticed. Maybe they find that diamond-in-the-rough guy.
