With all the recent talk about the contractual status of Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold, one key fact likely has gone overlooked: Josh McCown continues to be QB1 in New York.
“Josh is one, Teddy Bridgewater is two, Sam Darnold is three right now,” coach Todd Bowles told reporters on Monday. “That’s what I can tell you.”
McCown likely did enough last year to at least be the top guy as things stand now early in camp. HC Todd Bowles said McCown would have to be beat out by Bridgewater or Darnold. With Darnold just signing on Monday, he's obviously behind in the process.
