Q: How helpful is it to come back in the same offensive system and not have to start over again?
Darnold: For me I already know the system and I’m just trying to build off that. This whole offseason was just me building on what I already knew, which was nice.
Q: How does Le’Veon Bell look?
Darnold: He’s in really good shape, running around, he’s fast. He looks really good, so we’re just looking to use him in a lot of ways, and we’re just looking to have a good year with him.

Darnold: He’s so good out of the backfield catching the ball. He can line up as a receiver, run so many different routes and catch the football, but let’s not forget what he does best is run the football. So there are so many ways that he can help us win. It’ll be fun to just kind of game plan things for him that we feel like we’ll be able to take advantage of because he’s got such a wide skill set of things that he can do.
