The New York Jets are evaluating the quarterback position this offseason, but at least one of Sam Darnold's teammates wants to see him remain the team's starter.
During an appearance on the NFL Network, La'Mical Perine said he wants Darnold to remain the team's starting quarterback.
"No disrespect to any of the quarterbacks that's in the draft, but I actually had a chance to play with Sam and was able to be in the backfield with him, so I know what he brings to the team," Perine said. "He's a great leader, man. We've just got to put good weapons around him, and he can very well succeed and be one of the top quarterbacks in this league."
The Jets have gone 13-25 in 38 games with Darnold as the starter. For his career, he's completed just 59.8 percent of his passes with 45 touchdowns and 39 interceptions.
