USC’s Sam Darnold: ‘I’d be honored to play for any team’

Published

This is good news for the Cleveland Browns; USC quarterback Sam Darnold wouldn’t mind playing for them if he is drafted by the team in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Darnold told reporters on Wednesday that he doesn’t prefer any NFL team, saying he would be “honored to play for any [NFL] team.”

“Whenever I come out to go to the NFL, I think I’d be honored to play for any team,” Darnold said Wednesday (h/t ESPN).

“It’s been a dream of mine for such a long time to play in the NFL. Any team that would want to give me that opportunity to be a part of their organization, it would mean the world to me.”

Darnold’s stance comes on the heels of UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen’s comments on Saturday when he said that he would “rather be a lower pick at the right team than a higher one at the wrong team” and, according to ESPn’s Adam Schefter, he would be hesitant to declare for the 2018 draft if he knew that the Browns would select him with the No. 1 overall pick.

At least Darnold sees the NFL as a golden opportunity and not one that is to be taken for granted.

With Mason Rudolph under center in the wake of Ben Roethlisberger’s injury, Lynch becomes another security blank for the Steelers moving forward.
