Have faith Trojan fans, Sam Darnold might not be done yet. The sophomore quarterback isn't ruling out the possibility of coming back for his junior year, per Albert Breer of MMQB, especially if things fall in a particular way regarding the 2018 NFL Draft order. Breer reports that Darnold wants to see what teams are picking first next year. And if one of them is the Browns -- or a team like the Browns? He might head back to USC for one more ride. The San Francisco 49ers, the other winless team in the league, might eschew quarterbacks in the first round after acquiring Jimmy Garoppolo at the trade deadline. The other option, of course, would be to trade that early pick. If the 49ers get the first overall selection, that might be the route that they would want to go if a team has enough interest in Darnold to leap-frog the Browns. The Browns had initially traded for AJ McCarron on Tuesday, but reportedly the paperwork for the deal with the Bengals didn't go through before the 4 p.m. ET deadline.
