There was no sign of Sam Darnold as the New York Jets opened training camp.

The No. 3 overall draft pick officially became a contract holdout when the team began its first practice of the summer Friday without its prized rookie quarterback.

”He’s not here Authentic Uchenna Nwosu Jersey ,” coach Todd Bowles said, ”so I’m coaching the other (89) guys.”

Darnold joins Chicago linebacker Roquan Smith, the No. 8 choice, as the only unsigned picks from the entire draft.

Under the NFL’s labor agreement, contract holdouts by rookies are uncommon because deals are slotted based on draft position. Darnold will receive a four-year, fully guaranteed contract worth $30.247 million, including a $20 million signing bonus.

”It’s part of the business,” Bowles said. ”We’ve got two other quarterbacks who can play, too.”

The dispute seems to hang on contract language. If a player is cut during his rookie contract, offset language provides the team with financial protection. Not having offset language allows a player to receive his salary from the team that cut him, as well as get paid by another team that signs him.

Offset language is common in rookie deals. Both Baker Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick by Cleveland, and Josh Allen Riley Sutter Capitals Jersey , seventh overall by Buffalo – the quarterbacks drafted before and after Darnold – have offsets in their contracts. In fact, Allen and Darnold share the same agent in Jimmy Sexton.

”Any time you’re not here, you lose something,” Bowles said. ”It’s been a day. Obviously, when he comes in, we’ll get him caught up. Right now, I’ve got (89) other guys to worry about.”

The 21-year-old Darnold is expected to compete for the Jets’ starting job with 39-year-old Josh McCown, the incumbent who is coming off the best season of his career, and Teddy Bridgewater, working his way back from a knee injury nearly two years ago.

Both McCown and Bridgewater received an increased workload during the team’s 2 -hour practice as the only signed quarterbacks on the roster.

”I feel like I can have some ice cream tonight,” a smiling McCown said. ”Maybe an extra bowl or so. It was good work from our standpoint, Teddy and I. We’re excited about it, both as competitors and loving the game. You do what they ask you to do and practice as hard as you can. … We’ll be excited when Sam gets here Cheap Tarvarius Moore Jersey , obviously, but until then, we’re going to carry the load and be excited to do it.”

Darnold is considered the future of the franchise, and he impressed his teammates and coaches during offseason workouts and minicamp with his work ethic, ability to quickly grasp the playbook and to not repeat mistakes. The former USC star’s progress will be the top story line for the Jets during training camp.

When Darnold shows up, of course.

”Obviously, from a learning standpoint, you want to be here as a soon as possible,” McCown said, adding that the players understand the business side. ”There’s no substitute for being here.”

Darnold acknowledged during the offseason that he had to make several adjustments since joining the Jets, including calling plays in the huddle – something he hadn’t done much at USC. He also said the increased pace of the game is evident, even in practice.

But the Jets are confident Darnold will be a quick study – and a potential franchise-type quarterback.

After failing to lure Kirk Cousins to New York in free agency, the Jets positioned themselves to be able to get one of the top available quarterbacks in the draft. They moved up three spots from No. 6 overall and acquired the third selection from Indianapolis in a trade in March. It cost them the No. 6 pick John Franklin-Myers Color Rush Jersey , two second-round selections this year and a second-rounder next year, but general manager Mike Maccagnan and the Jets were willing to pay the steep price for a QB who could re-energize the franchise.

After Cleveland took Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick and the Giants selected running back Saquon Barkley at No. 2, the Jets found themselves staring at the scenario they dreamed of: getting the guy they wanted all along in Darnold.

Now, they just need to get him under contract and on the field.

”He can bring so much value to this team,” Bridgewater said of Darnold. ”We know how important he is to the quarterback room, as a young guy, also. We look forward to him being here and pick up right where he left off in the spring.”

NOTES: S Rontez Miles was the only Jets player to open camp on the physically unable to perform list. Miles tore cartilage in his left knee during organized team activities in May. … DL Courtney Upshaw, signed after a three-day tryout during minicamp last month, is on the active/non-football injury list. Upshaw spent the last two seasons with Atlanta after being a second-round draft pick by Baltimore out of Alabama in 2012. … RB Eli McGuire left practice with a foot injury. Bowles was not immediately certain of the severity or if McGuire might miss time. … WR Terrelle Pryor (ankle) and S Marcus Maye (ankle) sat out team drills.



Seattle fans don't need to worry about Russell Wilson.

The Seahawks quarterback didn't neglect his football duties during his week at spring training with the New York Yankees.

Wilson did his offseason gridiron drills each morning with his trainer before taking the baseball field.

"I'm definitely not sitting on the couch," Wilson said.

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday are heavy days for Wilson, with Wednesday and Saturday light days and Sunday typically off.

Wilson Adidas Andrew Cogliano Jersey , who took batting practice with Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge during his final Yankees' workout Saturday, gave an autographed football to all of his teammates.

A former minor league infielder, the Yankees acquired him from Texas last month and wanted to observe his leadership skills. He wanted to soak up the attitude of a franchise with 27 World Series titles.

Wilson did get an unexpected at-bat in Friday's game against Atlanta, striking out on a 2-2 pitch from left-hander Max Fried.

The 29-year-old Wilson led the Seahawks to the Super Bowl title after the 2013 season.

NOTES: Luis Severino had a strong three-inning simulated game, striking out seven and allowing two hits. Third in last season's AL Cy Young Award voting, the right-hander threw 37 of 47 pitches for strikes.

Severino said an opening day start would mean a lot.

"For now, I'm not thinking about that," Severino said. "Working on my pitches."

Severino could make his first spring training start Thursday against Philadelphia.
