Jets head coach Robert Saleh met with the media on Thursday, explaining his mindset heading into the season while saying he doesn't feel impacted by the pressure of developing a rookie QB. 

"I don’t think there’s risk. It still comes down to having a good football team and building a good roster around everybody," Saleh said. "There are players here that are talented, there are rookies that are going to be coming in that are talented. The expectation is that they’re one of 53 when it’s all said and done, and they’ve all got to perform their best to create a great football team."

Saleh also wished former Jets QB Sam Darnold the best of luck in Carolina.

There was a lot of discussions that Joe, his staff, and our staff all had and there were a lot of evaluation that took place. I’m excited for Sam. It’s a great opportunity for him to fulfill what he’s capable of in being the number three pick. Of all the things that have transpired, I’m most excited for Sam and him getting the opportunity to do great things in Carolina.
