There it is — all the proof you need that Jimmy Haslam and the Browns are ready to take Sam Darnold with the No. 1 overall pick in the Draft. No trading out of that spot. No taking Saquon Barkley and his soon-to-be-baby-mama. Jimmy is in that relationship building stage of the relationship. He knows that Mr. & Mrs. Darnold are scared shittless that their son is about to become very wealthy and stuck in Cleveland for years.
All the money in the world won’t be able to save him if the walls start crumbling in after he gets the job in year two after Tyrod Taylor wins four games and is thrown in the QB trash can.
Jimmy has to comfort these poor people. He has to prove he’s not some giant d-bag fraudster as he’s been portrayed. Sure, he’s about to pay their son, but there’s no way Jimmy wants Sam’s parents to get all negative right out of the gates.
According to SportTrac.com, Darnold’s rookie contract at No. 1 would be in the neighborhood of $32 million with $22 million coming in a signing bonus. Good luck to all involved. You’re going to need it.
Those people sure look like they don’t want to be tortured:
Gotta catch that:
