NEW YORK — Sam Darnold enters his third NFL season eager to prove he’s the franchise-type quarterback the New York Jets expect him to be.

He says he has a ton of confidence as he heads to training camp with an even better grasp of Adam Gase’s offense and believes that will show on the field.

Gase says he sees something different about Darnold. He thinks the quarterback is more detail-oriented and knows how to run the offense better.

Darnold says there's so much more that he understands now that he simply didn't a year ago.
