Following a contract dispute, the Jets and Darnold are expected to reach an agreement on a deal and the rookie quarterback is expected to be at the team facility Monday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Jets will sign their first-round draft pick to a four-year contract for the slotted amount of $30.2 million. The holdup, as we reported yesterday, was specific clauses and language. The big sticking point appears to be default language pertaining to the guaranteed money, the ESPN story said. Darnold, although behind at this point, is still expected to compete with Bridgewater and McCown for the starting QB job.
