New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is doing what many males in their 20s seem to do.
Following Sunday’s emphatic 34-3 win over the Oakland Raiders, Darnold went out on the town with his teammates. According to Page Six, the Jets signalcaller was making out with a girl and getting wasted.
“They were celebrating like they’d just won the Super Bowl,” said a spy on the scene. “Sam Darnold was wasted, hooking up with some girl. The other guys on the team had to [look after] him.”
“[There was] a limo driving him and the players around all night,” added the source.
Meanwhile, an insider told us, “His team protects him — that’s the way they are on the field, and off it. He’s the franchise.”
In other news, the grass is green. This news makes the 22-year old Darnold no different than many males and perhaps, young NFL quarterbacks who are single and looking to party.
In other related news, Darnold missed an early stretch of the season due to suffering from mono. One has to wonder if the Jets season could have turned out differently if Darnold had not contracted the “kissing disease.”
In more related news, Darnold has thrown 10 touchdown passes in his last four games. That is good.
The 4-7 Jets likely need to win out over their final five games for a chance to reach the AFC playoffs.
