Sam Darnold has yet to report to New York Jets training camp. The former top NFL Draft pick has yet to reach an agreement on his contract. This has caused a bit of a panic among Jets fans.

Fret not, though, Jets fans. A resolution is likely to be made today.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reports that Darnold and the Jets are expected to reach an agreement on a contract today. He is expected to be in the building today.

"Jets and QB Sam Darnold expected to reach agreement today he is expected at their building today, per source. Darnold will sign a four-year, $30.25 million deal, including $20 million guaranteed," he reports.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport has confirmed the news, saying a deal is expected to be made today. The Jets have practice early this afternoon. Rapoport suggests an agreement could be made before that to allow for Darnold to show up for practice. "The Jets and QB Sam Darnold are still talking, but the expectation is the contract will get done today. The team has practice at 1:50 pm. Perhaps by then? Either way, the two sides are coming together," he reports.

Darnold is one of the last top draft picks to be unsigned. It looks like that's going to change soon.
