Sam Darnold signs rookie deal with Jets

Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold had ended his contract dispute and signed with the New York Jets.

The team made the signing official on Monday, tweeting a video of Darnold after he signed his rookie deal.

“What’s up, Jets fans. Man, it’s a pleasure to be signed now,” Darnold says in the video. “Very excited, very special moment.”

The former USC quarterback, who was drafted by the Jets with the third overall pick in this year’s draft, signed in time to take part in Monday’s practice.

Darnold’s deal is a four-year contract for the slotted amount of $30.2 million. The deal includes a $20 million signing bonus and is fully guaranteed.

With the value of rookie deals in the NFL predetermined, the two sides weren’t arguing over the overall value of the contract, but rather specific clauses and language, according to ESPN.

Darnold, who is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job, has missed three practices since the Jets opened training camp Friday.
