REPORT: Zach Wilson Is “Reluctant” To Step Back In As Starting QB Despite Jets Wanting To Make Change

This New York Jets quarterback situation continues to be an unmitigated disaster.

According to The Athletic’s Dianna Russini and Zack Rosenblatt, Zach Wilson is “reluctant to stepping back in” as the New York Jets starting quarterback despite the Jets “leaning towards” going back to him as the starting signal-caller ahead of Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans

Russini also reported that Aaron Rodgers has reached out to Wilson and advised him to take the role:

Robert Saleh refuted the reporters, saying that if Wilson was “reluctant to start”, he wouldn’t be apart of the organization:


The Jets benched Zach Wilson three weeks ago and turned to Tim Boyle, who started the last two weeks for New York but got benched for Trevor Siemian in the team’s 13-8 defeat to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Together, they combined to go 19-of-38 for 197 yards and an interception.

We’ll see if Saleh does back to Zach Wilson for Sunday.. or if Wilson says, “Nah, I’m good.”
