All you need to know about the future of New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson amid his benching.
There have recently been claims that contradict one another regarding the future of New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson with the organization. According to a report from Fox Sports’ from the previous weekend, the Jets are likely going to “move on” from quarterback Zach Wilson over the offseason. However, according to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the organization intends to keep Wilson for the upcoming season.
The general manager of the Jets, Joe Douglas, “does not plan to shop Wilson” over the summer, according to the sources that Rapoport spoke with. In addition, one of the team’s sources shared with Rapoport that they are optimistic that “he’s going to get better.”
This claim surfaced soon after Wilson was taken out of the lineup for the fourth time already this season. Wilson’s comment that he didn’t think the offense let the defense down after the team’s defeat to the Patriots by a score of 10–3 prompted “irritation” in the locker room, which led to the first benching, which was announced by the head coach Robert Saleh.
Wilson started once again in Weeks 15 and 16 because Mike White’s damaged rib prevented him from being medically cleared to play at that time. Wilson was jeered throughout the entirety of the Week 16 game against the Jaguars, and he was finally taken out of the game to sit on the bench in the second half. In Sunday’s game against the Seahawks, Wilson didn’t play, and White took place in the starting lineup.
