The high praise continues to come in for Sam Darnold.
Despite a rocky rookie season for the Jets quarterback, the expectations for Darnold's future are still sky-high, with the latest bit of optimism coming from former Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.
The former shutdown corner told TMZ last week that Darnold has what it takes to lead the franchise to its first Super Bowl since 1969.
"I think he has a ton of potential. I think he's the future of the Jets," Revis said. "We have to build the right players around him for him to be successful. I think he can bring a Super Bowl in the near future for the Jets."
Revis joins former Cowboys quarterback and CBS color commentator Tony Romo as the latest to sing Darnold's praises.
Romo said before the season started Darnold has the ability to evolve into the best quarterback in the league and after the Jets hired Adam Gase, Romo believed the new head coach can unlock Peyton Manning potential out of Darnold and added that in the next three years we will see that Darnold is for real.
Darnold, however, had an inconsistent rookie season. He threw 17 touchdowns and 15 interceptions with just 2,865 passing yards and a 57.7 completion percentage in 13 games.
Yet Revis preached patience with the Jets young quarterback.
"It's going to take some time," he said. "But I feel like he's capable of [winning a Super Bowl]."
