Talk that the Jets could tank the 2017 season with an eye on choosing USC quarterback Sam Darnold with the first pick in the 2018 NFL draft don’t seem to sit well with Darnold. Darnold told Dianna Russini of ESPN that he thinks tanking for him would be silly. “I don’t think any team should tank their season because of me,” Darnold said. Darnold redshirted in 2015 while Cody Kessler started for USC, and then earned the starting job early in the 2016 season.
