Jets coach Todd Bowles gives comical answer to questions about Sam Darnold

Jets coach Todd Bowles gives comical answer to questions about Sam Darnold

There were a couple botched center-quarterback exchanges in team and there were incompletions.

"I borrowed somebody's personality for a moment", he then joked.

However, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini, Darnold is fully aware that his first step towards being successful with the Jets is earning the respect of his teammates and coaches.

It was stunning. And made a room filled with wide-eyed reporters laugh. The Jets won't play a regular-season game for four months and not many people will remember this initial workout in the years ahead.

Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing' TV show nears revival, thanks to 'Roseanne'
However, he was still pining for a return of Last Man Standing at the time, telling ET, "I still miss Last Man Standing ". At first, Allen posted a non-specific "stay tuned" tweet to his verified Twitter account .

"He was good", he said. "Obviously, we threw the ball around a little bit".

That's a different tune than the one Cleveland is striking with No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield.

"I embrace that, but I understand every single day is a process".

Darnold is fresh-faced, has a terrific head of reddish-blond hair, and should make for a target of companies looking for celebrity endorsers or magazines searching for a cover-boy athlete. And on Friday morning, Darnold wasted no time meeting with Bates, to ask him questions he had about the playbook. "I'm a rookie. I understand that, but at the same time I know I'm a quarterback and that I've got to be a leader on the field and off it".

It was the fifth straight season he threw for 4,000 yards, making him the only quarterback in franchise history to do so. In fact, striking the deal with Ryan now should allow Atlanta to shift their focus to Jones.

Darnold gets his chance, starting Friday. The former Baylor star started New York's final three games last season - all losses - after McCown was lost for the year with a broken left wrist. "He's going to learn it as he goes". But we're not holding him back. Back at the hotel, Darnold worked through the playbook with some of his campmates. He won his first start, but lost the last three. "I think (it will be) more relief than anything, just because I haven't been with a team, I haven't been inside the pocket for a long time", he said.

Things really must be looking up at 1 Jets Drive if Todd Bowles is cracking jokes with reporters.
