Who ever thought there would be a contract dispute with Sam Darnold?
But then we are talking about the Jets here. They are trying to get Darnold to agree that all his guaranteed money would be voided if he’s fined and/or suspended by the NFL for disciplinary reasons on-or-off the field.
Neither Baker Mayfield nor Josh Allen had to agree to that. Their guarantees are voided with a suspension, not a fine.
So the Jets want more and appear willing to let Darnold miss at least four days of training camp.
Darnold was always a team-first guy but he also knows how to stand up for himself.
