Josh Norman is very impressed with Sam Darnold

NFL: Washington Redskins-Training Camp Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Tuesday was reportedly another strong day of training camp for Sam Darnold as the Jets wrapped up their series of joint practices with the Redskins.

Cimini:

Sam Darnold was sharp. Consider: He threw only six incompletions in 19 attempts, and that includes three drops.

This caught the attention of Redskins cornerback Josh Norman, who had a lot of good things to say about the rookie quarterback.

Darnold will get more of a test on Thursday night when he faces this Washington defense in a game situation. It seems likely that Darnold will see plenty of time with the first team in his next test to try and earn the Week 1 starting job.

The rookie has come on strong after missing his first three practices. His holdout seems like a distant memory now. The opportunity to start could go out the window with one poor performance in the next two preseason games, but Darnold has given himself a chance.
