BREAKING: Minnesota Vikings QB Coach Josh McCown Has A Misunderstanding With QB Sam Darnold, Says He Is Not Capable Enough For…

Report: How good can Sam Darnold be for the Vikings?

The 26-year-old Darold comes to Minnesota armed with many weapons and a new lease on life.

The Vikings were able to replace Kirk Cousins in around eleven hours.

NFL Network reports that 26-year-old Sam Darnold, a former third overall selection pick, has agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with Minnesota. Ben Volin of the Boston Globe had reported on Monday night that Darnold was considering offers from the Vikings and Broncos. At approximately one in the morning, reports from Connecticut emerged stating that Darnold had selected the Minnesota offer.

Darnold, whose quarterbacks coach in Minnesota, Josh McCown, was his teammate in New York, owns a 21-35 record a starter in six seasons, including three with the Jets, two with the Carolina Panthers and one with the San Francisco 49ers. He’s thrown for 63 touchdowns and 56 interceptions.

Minnesota’s QB room now includes Darnold, Nick Mullens and Jaren Hall.

The first pass Darnold threw in the NFL was intercepted and returned for a touchdown, setting the tone for a rough rookie season with the Jets. But it can’t be ignored how inferior the weapons around Darnold in New York and Carolina were compared to what he’ll have in Minnesota with Justin Jefferson, Jordan Addison, T.J. Hockenson and what should be a competent offense line in 2024.

Can McCown and head coach Kevin O’Connell help Darnold reach his full potential?

Day 1 of NFL free agency produced deals for Minnesota involving linebacker Blake Cashman, edge rushers Andrew Van Ginkel and Jonathan Greenard, and center Darnold joining with the Vikings. Aaron Jones, the running back who is now with the Packers, is apparently being pursued by Minnesota as well.
