Sam Darnold and Josh Allen are spending their weekend
watching greatness Adam

, and for once it’s not other football players.

They’re at Shinnecock Hills for the U.S. Open.

Selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft – Darnold by the New York
Jets, Allen by the Buffalo Bills – the two quarterbacks are headed to the pros
but are far from done learning.

”We talk about it all the time in the quarterback room: Whenever we get a
chance to watch greatness, whatever it is, we want to do it and learn from it,”
Darnold said. ”Even last weekend with Justify winning the Triple Crown, you
appreciate that as a quarterback and someone who’s striving to be great. .

”Then to see what guys like Dustin Johnson are able to do, it’s just so cool
to watch.”

That’s who Darnold and Allen are rooting for, too. Johnson entered Saturday
on top of the leaderboard Gabe Jackson
, 4 over par, but was struggling in the third round.

Darnold and Allen checked out all 18 holes, spending a long time by the green
of No. 8, just watching everyone putt. Each golfer’s ability to pinpoint a shot
never ceased to amaze them. But it’s what comes before the swing that they
really admire and respect: the preparation before the action.

”It’s like what me and Sam would do as quarterbacks, evaluating the defense
before we snap the ball and trying to get understanding of what they’re doing,”
Allen said. ”And that’s what they’re doing on the course. Before every shot,
they’re trying to gauge the wind, trying to gauge the distance Jason

, and ultimately trying to have the right swing to
put the ball where they want.”

That also includes zoning in on the task and blocking out distractions.

Darnold, who has played maybe a half-dozen times, actually ended up being the
cause of such a distraction.

A fan recognized Darnold in the crowd and shouted, ”J-E-T-S! Jets! Jets!
Jets!” The outburst came in the middle of a player’s backswing. Darnold couldn’t
recall whose swing, but it was his second shot on a par 3.

”He was just laser focused,” Darnold said. ”Still hit a really good shot, and
it’s just really cool to watch these guys do what they do. Even with all the
hecklers, everything that’s going on Harrison

, they’re still able to just focus.”

That’s a standard Darnold and Allen can take back to the football field.

Darnold completed 63.1 percent of his passes and averaged 295.9 yards per
game in his last season at Southern California. He was picked third overall.

Allen, who brought his dad – his frequent golfing partner – to Shinnecock
Hills, hit 56.3 percent of his passes for 1,812 yards and averaged 164.7 yards
per game at Wyoming last year. He went seventh overall.

”I love football, so there’s nothing that’s going to replace that,” Allen
said. ”But golf, it’s a second.”

New York Giants defensive end Josh Mauro has
been suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the season for violating
the league's policy on performance-enhancers.

Mauro is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and

Mauro was released by the Arizona Cardinals on March 16 and signed with the
Giants on Monday.

Mauro is being reunited with defensive coordinator James Bettcher with the
Giants. He played his first four seasons for the Cardinals, the past three under

Undrafted coming out of Stanford Dalvin

, Mauro played in 47 games with 26 starts for the
Cardinals. He had 92 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble
recovery. He started seven of the 13 games last season.
