Sam Darnold and the defense look good; Teddy Bridgewater struggles during intense Jets minicamp practice

NFL: New York Jets-Minicamp Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The second day of minicamp is in the books for the Jets.

It sounds like the third overall pick had himself a solid day.

Outside of Darnold, the general perception seemed to be that the defense had the upper hand on the offense for most of the day.

Teddy Bridgewater, who to this point has been considered one of the standouts of the offseson program, seemed to have a particularly rough day.

It also sounds like the intensity level was pretty high.


Todd Bowles usually doesn’t get angry, but he was fired up in practice today when DE Leonard Williams inadvertently hit QB Teddy Bridgewater in the arm during a team drill. That’s a no-no, and the coach let everybody know it. Asked later if there’s a fine line for defenders, Bowles said curtly, “There is no fine line. We don’t touch the quarterback in shorts and T-shirts. Ever.”

Minicamp concludes tomorrow, and then we play the training camp waiting game.
