Jets To Host Private Workout With Wyoming QB Josh Allen

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — In their search for a franchise quarterback, the New York Jets will work out Wyoming's Josh Allen in the next week and don't plan to have a private session with Southern California's Sam Darnold.

Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan says Monday at the NFL meetings that the organization has had "quite a bit of exposure" to Darnold, and that bringing in any player for a pre-draft workout is "no big shocker."

New York traded up from the sixth overall spot to No. 3, where Maccagnan says he is comfortable with the possibilities. Unlike acting owner Christopher Johnson, who the previous day pretty much affirmed a quarterback would be the choice, Maccagnan wasn't dropping any hints.

He did say the Jets spoke with Cleveland about the top spot in next month's draft, but not with their fellow owners of MetLife Stadium, the Giants, concerning the No. 2 position.
