Jayden Daniels Has ‘Got That It Factor You Want In A Quarterback’

Jayden Daniels is a nine-year-old kid with a big weight on his shoulders as he acclimates to life in the NFL.

His new Commanders teammates think he’s doing just fine. In fact, they think he’s the franchise quarterback Washington thinks he is.

“He’s kind of got that ‘it’ factor that you want in a quarterback,” said rookie tight end Ben Sinnott.

The expectation to win was palpable right away for Jayden Daniels, who’s taking it one step at a time.

“It was a blessing. Trying to soak it all in,” said Jayden Daniels. 

“This was my first NFL practice — I was focusing on practice — but just that nine-year-old kid in me realizing that his dreams came true. Now I’m here, but I still have a long way to go.

“It’s a franchise that’s eager,” Daniels added. “… The DMV, this fanbase, everybody — they want to see wins, they want to see excitement, they want to see joy. Hopefully we can go out there and we can do it as a Commanders franchise, as a team. But that’s way down the road. We’re worried about rookie minicamp practice tomorrow.”

If he brings such level-headedness to the field he should excel. However, Ben Sinnott has seen more than just competence from Daniels.

“The ball placement, the arm talent he has — he has the ability to make every throw,” he said.

“You see it all over the film, too. He can run, he can extend plays, create explosives with his legs, throw it 80 yards downfield and create a huge play in the passing game. He’s got all the intangibles and he’s a natural leader — a guy who brings his teammates together. I’m just very impressed with who he is and what type of player he is.”
