Sam Darnold didn’t agree with Bradley McDougald and Avery Williamson assessing that Jets practices are sometimes slow and sluggish.

Darnold said whatever the players feel about practice they should express it to each other.

"As players we can tell and understand when the energy is lacking," Darnold said. "Practice is a very safe space to guys to be able to talk about what they feel. If they feel guys aren’t giving the right effort they’re able to speak about it.
