Boy Green spoke with New York Jets Senior Reporter Eric Allen. We go behind the scenes on Sam Darnold getting drafted. And why Jamal Adams spits hot fire.
To get some more juicy information on all things New York Jets I spoke with senior team reporter Eric Allen on my morning radio show The Manchild Show with Boy Green:
A couple of notes + quotes from conversation w/ @nyjets Senior Reporter @eallenjets:
– #SamDarnold has not picked jersey # yet, but will have it by #Jets rookie minicamp
– @_therealpnick played outside in college, likely will play slot in pros
– Even morehttps://t.co/nRrwuTpw3V

Sorry, but there’s no update on Sam Darnold‘s jersey number, which every Jets fan wants to know for obvious reasons. The rookie minicamp starts Friday, so we’ll have it by then. I have no idea why he’s taking this long and why every other rookie has already made a decision.
We also explored the idea of rookies making immediate impacts and the two names that came up consistently was Darnold (obviously) and then the Jets third-round pick, defensive lineman Nathan Shepherd.
From everyone I’ve talked to, it seems like he has a real opportunity to replace Muhammad Wilkerson on the defensive line. The great thing is that he won’t have to do it by himself—there will be a healthy rotation.
Sam. Freaking. Darnold.

If you’re a parent I think you’ll understand what I’m going through here, but my love for Sam Darnold is unconditional. Everything about him is perfect, from his suave hair, his highlight reels, and everything in between.
So these behind the scenes details provided some awesome insight into Darnold’s day with the Jets.
Speaking of awesome days, I just had arguably the best of them all. No, I’m not talking about draft day, although that was spectacular. I’m talking about the super-hot fire Jamal Adams just spit out on social media:
Can’t wait to catch passes from one of my fav QB’s! https://t.co/guRVeGEM9K

This rivalry has just been reignited and I couldn’t be happier.
You Can Never Have Enough Depth
One last nugget to chew on before you get out of here: the Jets have added some depth on defense by re-signing OLB David Bass.
The Jets didn’t address edge rusher in this class, the cookie just crumbled that way, so now the green and white are adding insurance policies.
