Jets QB Sam Darnold Not Buying Into Praise From Broncos LB Von Miller

Broncos’ six-time Pro Bowl pass rusher Von Miller heaped compliments on Jets’ rookie quarterback Sam Darnold, saying he thought he should have been drafted No. 1 overall. But Darnold, after hearing about Miller’s comments for the first time, did his best to play it cool, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ Advance Media reports.

“That’s high praise from a really talented player – probably one of the best players in the league,” Darnold said. “Obviously, you know, he’s a great player and I’m looking forward to going up against him.”

“It’s pretty cool that he said it and it’s definitely very humbling, very flattering, but at the same time, you know, we’re going up against him,” Darnold added. “And a bunch of people know and I know that, like I just said, he’s one of the best players in the league. So nothing much needs to be said about him because everyone already knows that. So I’m just going to go out there and we’re going to handle him the way that we need to and we’ll go about our business that way.”

“It’s a good feeling, I’m not going to lie,” Darnold said. “But at the same time, I’m not worried about that – I can’t be. I have a lot going on in my own life with football and everything, in terms of running the plays, executing, being on the same page with everyone on the offense. So there’s a lot going on in my world, I’m not too worried about what other people are saying.

“But when guys like that have high praise for me or they’re saying cool things, it’s obviously very flattering.”
