Jets sign rookie QB Darnold

July 30 2018 8:06 PM

The New York Jets have belatedly signed overall number three pick Sam Darnold after his contract holdout.

The former University of Southern Calirfornia quarterback was absent for the start of the Jets' training camp, with the wording of his deal reportedly holding up proceedings.

But amid reports that Darnold was with the Jets on Monday to pen a four-year contract worth $30.25million, the team confirmed his signing.

In a video posted on the Jets' Twitter page, Darnold said: "It’s a pleasure to be signed now. Very excited, very special moment. Let’s do it. Jet up."

Darnold will compete with Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater for New York’s starting spot.

The Jets are scheduled to open the preseason on August 10 against the Atlanta Falcons.
