General manager Joe Douglas told reporters Wednesday he will be fielding inquiries about the former No. 3 overall pick.
"I will answer the call, if it’s made. Sam is, we think, a dynamic playmaker in this league with dynamic talent," Douglas said, according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. "But if calls are made, I will answer them."
Darnold's future in New York is uncertain after the Jets landed the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 draft. The franchise was reportedly planning on evaluating the incoming quarterback class before determining Darnold's fate. Douglas added Wednesday there is "no hard timeline" on a decision, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
The 23-year-old has failed to live up to his billing since entering the NFL in 2018. He's completed 59.8% of his passes, averaging 213.1 yards per game with 45 career touchdowns and 39 interceptions.
He's also coming off a 2020 campaign in which he set new career lows in passer rating (72.7) and yards per game (184).
Darnold has one year remaining on his rookie deal but also has a fifth-year option available. His cap hit for next season is just under $9.8 million, per Spotrac.
