If USC QB Sam Darnold wants to avoid Jets here are the options

Southern Cal quarterback Sam Darnold could very well be Jets quarterback Sam Darnold getting ready for his first training camp at this time next year.

The Jets win too many games and don’t have the first pick in the 2018 draft, or

- Darnold decides to stay in school at least another year,Womens Will Fuller V Jersey, or

- He doesn’t want to play for the Jets and rips a page out of the 1983 playbook of John Elway and the 2004 playbook of Eli Manning and forces a trade by threatening to sit out the season.

What exactly did Darnold mean last week when he said,Womens Andrew Luck Jersey, “I don’t think any team should tank their season because of me.”

Was he sending the Jets a message? Was he telling Jets Nation to scrap the “Suck For Sam” campaign slogan?

Darnold is just a 20-year-old redshirt sophomore and didn’t even start until the fourth game last year. He lost his first start and then won nine in a row. He is considered the best of the quarterbacks expected to be in next April’s draft,Womens T.Y. Hilton Jersey, ahead of Wyoming’s Josh Allen and UCLA’s Josh Rosen.

Of course,Womens Vontae Davis Jersey, with a full college season to play before the draft process starts,Womens Blake Bortles Jersey, Darnold is the guy., so much could change. The order of the top QBs could flip-flop. Either Allen or Rosen could separate themselves with a great season. Darnold could regress. But right now

Before Darnold’s no-tanking quote, which Darnold dismissed by saying he’s taking it one year at a time., there had been a report claiming he might stay in school another couple of years

The Jets, Brandon Marshall, who this offseason dumped Darrelle Revis, are the only team that has been suspected of tanking the 2017 season. They are all-in on going for 0-16., Nick Mangold, Eric Decker and David Harris and didn’t re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick

who have been a career-killer for QBs? Is he afraid of New York?,Was Darnold being subtle and saying he had no interest in playing for the Jets

Tanking is not a terrible idea for the Jets. If a team is going to be bad, it’s still a better percentage than taking a quarterback later on., they might as well be horrific and earn the top pick in the draft. Although quarterbacks at the top of the draft are 50-50 to become franchise quarterbacks

getting the best player each time with the sixth overall pick: Defensive lineman Leonard Williams in 2015 and safety Jamal Adams this year.,Authentic Will Fuller V Jersey,Authentic Andrew Luck Jersey,The Jets actions scream out that they are tanking. The nice way of saying it is they are transitioning to a younger team. They got lucky in two of the last three drafts

But nothing good happens until they find a quarterback. If Christian Hackenberg was going to be the guy,Authentic T.Y. Hilton Jersey, the Jets refused to put Hackenberg on the field.,Authentic Vontae Davis Jersey, then the comments from inside the Jets facility in the last year would have been a lot more positive. All you need to know is that despite horrific QB play last year from Fitzpatrick and quick injury-shortened appearances by Geno Smith and Bryce Petty

Which brings us back to Darnold and his intentions.

he needs to consult with Elway and Manning.,Authentic Blake Bortles Jersey,If he wants to avoid the Jets

then one week later owner Robert Irsay went over Accorsi’s head and traded Elway to Denver.,Elway told the Colts not to draft him and that he would go play minor league baseball with the Yankees. Ernie Accorsi drafted him anyway

Accorsi was on the receiving end of Manning not wanting to play for the Chargers. He threatened to go to graduate school and enter the 2005 draft. San Diego picked him and then traded him to the Giants.,In 2004

he gives up his eligibility and his leverage unless he wants to sit out the year.,If Darnold enters the draft

Or he could follow Peyton Manning’s game plan from 1998.

The Jets had the first pick. Peyton had one year of eligibility remaining at Tennessee and was willing to play for Bill Parcells. Archie Manning twice called Parcells to see if he was going to take his son. When Parcells would not commit, Peyton decided to go back to school. Manning has since said he was going back to school anyway, it would have made his decision more difficult. He wanted to be guaranteed where he was going to play or he was going back to school., but if Parcells had told him he was definitely taking him

There is no indication yet that Darnold is trying to manipulate the 2018 draft. But with two years of eligibility remaining after the 2017 season, he will be in position to try and demand draft certainty before he has to declare in January. If this is his plan, he had until the spring to make his decision., he won’t have as much time as Peyton Manning to execute it. Because Manning was set to graduate early after three years

Darnold looks like a can’t miss guy. He’s 6-4, the Jets fell in love with another USC quarterback. His name was Mark Sanchez., 225 and plays for a big-time program with national championship aspirations. But once upon a time
