Sam Darnold Throwing With Saquon Barkley

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold was seen on social media throwing passes to New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley. Players have had to get creative this offseason with no in-person organized team activities or minicamps thanks to the coronavirus, so it's not a surprise to see Darnold throwing with a player from another team. The 23-year-old signal-caller is trying to take the next step in his third NFL season after a disappointing 2019 campaign in which he was derailed by mononucleosis midway through the year. That will be easier to accomplish with an improved offensive line, but there remain questions about Darnold's offensive weapons through the air. Until we have evidence that Darnold is the real deal, fantasy owners will treat him as a low-end QB2 with some upside.

Sam Darnold Holding Workouts With Teammates

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold will gather with around two dozen teammates for an informal three-day passing camp this weekend in the Miami area. Running backs Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore, wide receivers Breshad Perriman, Jamison Crowder and rookie Denzel Mims and tight end Chris Herndon are all expected to attend. It will be the first time Darnold has worked with Perriman and Mims. The former USC signal-caller was expected to take a step forward in his second season, but that didn't really happen thanks to a bout with mono and New York's terrible offensive line. But he did make strides to finish the year, and the team's O-line should be better. However, Gang Green's receiving room still leaves a lot to be desired, making Darnold a low-end QB2 with room to grow.

Jets Give Sam Darnold A New Backup

With the 125th overall pick in the fourth round, the New York Jets selected Florida International quarterback James Morgan. Morgan is a leader with a gunslinger mentality at 6-foot-4, 229 pounds. He gets rid of the ball quickly and has a strong arm that should translate to the next level. His touchdown-to-interception ratio improved drastically in his last two college seasons. Morgan gets in trouble because he has a tendency to force throws, and he has just average pocket mobility. However, he's probably an upgrade over David Fales as Sam Darnold's backup.
