According to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer, following the season-ending injury to Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan and Carson Wentz both reaced out to the Ne York Jets to tell them they were available and interested in joining Gang Green.
Per Glazer, the New York Jets declined and said they were committed to Zach Wilson as Rodgers’ replacement.
That commitment has not worked out well.
Wilson went 12-of-27 for 170 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in a 30-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Leave aside his 68-yard touchdown pass to Garrett Wilson and he averaged 3.9 yards through the air in his other 26 attempts. In Week 2, Wilson went 18-of-36 for 157 yards, averaging just 4.4 yards per attempt.
It’s clear the Jets aren’t going to be able to move forward with Zach Wilson so it’s interesting to see Robert Saleh remain so committed to the former No. 2 overall pick.
The scheduled doesn’t get easier for the Jets as they welcome the reigning-Super Bowl Champion, Kansas City Chiefs, to MetLife Stadium in Week 4.
