Which NFL team has had the worst offseason? (1:43)

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Just recently, Jets QB Sam Darnold was asked, "Who's your new Josh McCown?" Not wanting to slight his teammates, Darnold said nice things about the other QBs on the roster, led by Trevor Siemian. Truth is, Darnold will miss McCown, who announced his retirement on Monday. Darnold has known for months McCown wouldn't be back, so this isn't shocking news. Still, he's bound to experience some Josh withdrawal once the season begins. He was tied to McCown's hip last season, leaning on him before, during and after games. They lived in the same building. They ate together. Watched film at night together. When Darnold struggled, he got pep talks from McCown, an unselfish player with vast experience — a rare combo. Darnold will get coached up by Adam Gase & Co., but it won't be the same as having a teammate/mentor.
