New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas promised Sam Darnold‘s parents that he’d do everything in his power to protect him.
An NFL fan would be hard-pressed to come up with a tougher rookie quarterback situation than the New York Jets circa 2018.
Offensive line issues led to serious doubts about Sam Darnold making it out clean on the other side, and it continued into the 2019 season.
Then, a former offensive lineman took his post as general manager. No more will offensive line go ignored. No more will fans have to worry about No. 14’s long-term health. No more will Darnold’s parents have to fret every Sunday.
On a Wednesday conference call (quarantine edition), Joe Douglas upped the ante regarding his offensive line focus by revealing what he told Darnold’s parents the first time he met them last season.
