AFC East Notes: Dolphins, Jets, Patriots



Jets rookie QB Sam Darnold says he wouldn’t be disappointed or surprised by any decision the team makes regarding who will be their starting quarterback.

“I wouldn’t be disappointed, I wouldn’t be surprised. Throughout my short career playing football, I’ve seen a lot of things,” Darnold said, via the New York Post. “Josh and Teddy are great players. I wouldn’t be surprised. At the same time, every quarterback wants to play. But that’s not my job to put the best player out there. That’s the coach’s job.”


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Patriots had “discussed (Eric Decker) in some potential trades” before he made the decision to retire on Sunday.

“This might have been a situation, say, similar to some of the other veterans that the Patriots have had in camp in the past,” Rapoport said Monday, via” “Reggie Wayne is one that comes to mind. … Spend a couple weeks in Patriots camp, it’s very clear it’s time to retire. Before anything happens regarding my status, I’m just going to hang ’em up, go out on my terms and begin whatever else remains ahead for Eric Decker.
