QB Sam Darnold, who faces Kirk Cousins on Sunday, said he followed the Cousins/free agency saga in March, knowing it could impact him in the draft. "I was definitely paying attention to Kirk ... and what he was doing free agent-wise and trying to see what team I could go to," Darnold said Monday. "Yeah, I was definitely thinking about all that stuff during the draft process." The Jets missed out on Cousins, leading them to Darnold. Said the rookie: "Yeah, everything worked out for the best, I think."
