The Jets drafted quarterback Sam Darnold in the first round of the 2018 draft, but Darnold’s arrival wasn’t enough to avoid a 4-12 record that was followed by the dismissal of head coach Todd Bowles, a shopping spree in free agency and, eventually, the firing of General Manager Mike Maccagnan.

With training camp getting underway this week, the question for the Jets will be what the arrival of the likes of Le'Veon Bell, C.J. Mosley, Jamison Crowder, Adam Gase and Joe Douglas means for the team. Darnold believes the result will be “a lot more wins” than the team had in his rookie season and that it is “absolutely realistic” to think about winning the division, although he stopped short of saying that falling short of the playoffs would mark this season as a failure.

Jets TE Herndon suspended 4 games for violating NFL’s substance abuse policy Chris Herndon will spend the first four games on the sidelines. 

“I don’t want to speak too soon on that,” Darnold said, via the New York Post. “I think it just kind of depends on how the season goes and all that. When you start the season, it’s Super Bowl-or-bust, every team has the same goal, so in that regard, yes. But there’s definitely stepping stones that you have to make up become a great team and kind of build that culture that I’ve been talking about. So I guess we’ll kind of see when the season kind of dwindles down here.”

In addition to his optimism about the team’s prospects, Darnold said he has more confidence in himself as a player than he felt a year ago. Having that translate to a leap in production on the field would be a plus for the Jets even if they don’t make the leap back into the postseason.

Center Ryan Kalil comes out of retirement to join Jets.
Ryan Kalil wasn't done playing football, after all. The five-time Pro Bowl center snapped out of retirement Thursday and agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the New York Jets. The 34-year-old Kalil, who started just six games last season for Carolina after dealing with a neck injury, will need to pass a physical Friday before signing his contract with New York. Financial terms weren't immediately available. NFL Network reported the deal is worth $8.4 million. Kalil spoke all last season that it was his final one. He walked away from the game when his contract expired after 12 NFL seasons — all with the Panthers.
