Jets Still "Open" To Trading Zach Wilson

The New York Jets are prepared to move on from quarterback Zach Wilson, the former second overall pick in 2021, if an interested team makes a worthwhile offer, but they aren't in a hurry to do so. "At that same time, we're obviously open to trading Zach. There have been discussions. Nothing's really changed since we talked in Florida. We're open to trading him, there's just no news to report on that," general manager Joe Douglas said. Unsurprisingly, Wilson has chosen to stay away from the team's voluntary offseason workouts. Wilson was thrown into the fire immediately after Aaron Rodgers tore his Achilles in Week 1 last year, and he failed to improve behind a leaky offensive line. If no teams offer the Jets what they want for the 24-year-old Wilson, there's a chance he could stay in New York and sit behind Rodgers and veteran backup Tyrod Taylor.

Zach Wilson Not At Voluntary Workouts

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has not reported to voluntary workouts this offseason, according to general manager Joe Douglas. The team has reportedly been trying to trade the former No. 2 overall pick, but trade talks have been at a standstill. With Tyrod Taylor backing up Aaron Rodgers this season, the Wilson project is likely over in New York. The 24-year-old has completed 57% of his passes for 6,293 yards, 23 touchdowns, and 25 interceptions through his first 34 NFL games. A change of scenery would likely be a positive thing for the young signal-caller and the organization, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Jets Could End Up Keeping Zach Wilson

There's a chance that quarterback Zach Wilson could end up staying with the New York Jets in 2024. "If we don't trade him, we're going to keep him," owner Woody Johnson said. The Jets gave Wilson and his representatives permission to seek a trade last month, but with the rest of the league already making moves to acquire other QBs ahead of next month's NFL draft, the demand for Wilson has been non-existent this offseason. If the Jets do end up trading Wilson, they'll basically be giving him away. The former No. 2 overall pick in 2021 out of BYU has fallen flat in his three NFL seasons and was benched in 2023 after throwing for 2,271 yards, eight touchdowns and seen picks in 12 games (11 starts) after Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) got hurt. The Jets already signed veteran Tyrod Taylor to serve as Rodgers' backup in 2024.

Zach Wilson's Trade Market At A Standstill

With both quarterbacks Mac Jones and Justin Fields being traded this offseason for essentially pennies on the dollar, the New York Jets' prospects of trading former first-rounder Zach Wilson are looking bleak. Both Jones and Fields have shown more promise in their careers than Wilson at this point. The 24-year-old has thrown 25 interceptions and 23 touchdowns while completing only 57% of his passes in three seasons. He's also had off-the-field incidents that don't portray him favorably as a teammate. The Jets have been ready to move on from Wilson for a while, but now it looks unlikely that they can fetch a Day 3 pick for him. There have been no reports of interest around the league in Wilson since the Jets allowed his agent to seek a trade, although the Ravens, Broncos and Chiefs could look to upgrade their current backup options.

Jets Give Zach Wilson Permission To Seek A Trade

The New York Jets have given quarterback Zach Wilson's agent permission to seek a trade, according to general manager Joe Douglas. The Jets are fully expected to trade Wilson this offseason after he struggled yet again in 2023 while being forced into starting duties when Aaron Rodgers tore his Achilles early in the first quarter in Week 1. The 24-year-old Wilson was benched eventually and ended the year on Injured Reserve due to a concussion. The former second overall pick has been a massive bust in the NFL and is unlikely to be competing for a starting job with whichever team he lands with via trade. Rodgers will return in 2024 as New York's starting signal-caller, but the Jets are searching for a veteran backup that will be an improvement over Wilson.

Jets Will Attempt To Trade Zach Wilson

The New York Jets will attempt to trade quarterback and former No. 2 pick Zach Wilson during the upcoming offseason, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday morning. The 24-year-old stepped in for Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) back in Week 1 but underwhelmed, completing 60 percent of his passes for 2,271 yards, eight touchdowns, seven interceptions, and seven lost fumbles. He was temporarily benched during the middle of the season and also missed the Jets' final three games due to a concussion. New York won't be able to recoup the early first-round pick it spent to first acquire Wilson, but they could still secure a mid- or late-round selection given that the BYU product is young and flashed potential at times.

Zach Wilson Will Not Play In Week 18

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (concussion) has not cleared the league's concussion protocol and will not play in the Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday against the New England Patriots, according to head coach Robert Saleh. It means that Trevor Siemian will make the start in the team's final game of the year. The 24-year-old Wilson's future with the team is up in the air this offseason after another disappointing campaign in which he had a shot to prove himself after Aaron Rodgers suffered a torn Achilles in Week 1. The former No. 2 overall pick threw for 2,271 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions in 12 games played while also losing 10 fumbles. There's a good chance Wilson won't be in a Jets uniform for the start of the 2024 season this fall.

Zach Wilson Could Play In Week 18

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh told reporters on Friday that the team is taking a wait-and-see approach with quarterback Zach Wilson (concussion) for the Week 18 regular season finale against the New England Patriots. "We'll see where he's at. He will definitely be part of the discussion. We just need to get him healthy first," Saleh said when asked if Wilson will be the starter if healthy for next week. In ESPN New York's Rich Cimini's opinion, Trevor Semien will make another start on Jan. 7 to close out the Jets' season. New York has nothing left to play for, so they are unlikely to rush Wilson through the league's concussion protocol to have him play in a meaningless game. The 24-year-old has missed the last two games due to a concussion suffered in Week 15.

Zach Wilson Estimated As Non-Participant Monday

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (concussion) was estimated as a non-participant on Monday. He initially suffered the injury back in Week 15 and missed the Jets' game this past Sunday. With New York in the midst of a short week, Wilson would need to clear concussion protocol rather quickly in order to play on Thursday night versus the Cleveland Browns. He has 2,271 passing yards, eight touchdowns, and seven interceptions, so even if active, he'd remain off the fantasy radar versus a strong Cleveland defense. In the event that Wilson can't suit up, Trevor Siemian would draw his second consecutive start.

Zach Wilson Still In Concussion Protocol

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol on Wednesday. The Athletic's Zack Rosenblatt writes that it seems unlikely that Wilson will play this weekend against the Washington Commanders on Christmas Eve, especially since the Jets were officially eliminated from the playoffs with last Sunday's blowout loss to the Miami Dolphins. Wilson will not practice on Wednesday and is unlikely to be an option for fantasy managers in two-QB superflex leagues in Week 16. Instead, it appears that Trevor Siemian will make his first start of the year after replacing a concussed Wilson in Week 15 and promptly throwing two interceptions. He's been bad in spot duty the last two weeks, going 19-for-39 for 176 yards, zero touchdowns and two picks. It wouldn't be a surprise if Brett Rypien replaced Siemian at some point this Sunday.

Zach Wilson To Remain Starter When Healthy

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said on Monday that quarterback Zach Wilson (concussion) is the team's starter if he is able to clear the NFL's concussion protocol ahead of Sunday's game against the Washington Commanders. The Jets were eliminated from playoff contention after Week 15's dismal 30-0 loss to the Miami Dolphins, so any hopes of Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) perhaps making a miraculous comeback from his Week 1 Achilles tear have probably gone by the wayside. Wilson is 4-7 as a starter this year, passing for 2,271 yards, eight touchdowns, and seven interceptions with 211 rushing yards overall. Trevor Siemian replaced Wilson against Miami, completing 14-of-26 passes for 110 yards and two picks. It's likely a no-win situation for fantasy managers of New York's surrounding skill positions, but the Commanders have at least given up the second-most fantasy points to opposing signal-callers.

Zach Wilson Officially Diagnosed With A Concussion

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (head) was officially diagnosed with a concussion. The signal-caller struggled against the Dolphins before heading to the locker room before the end of the first half. It was initially reported he was battling dehydration. However, the latest update could mean he won't play in the Week 16 meeting with the Washington Commanders. There's a chance Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) could be back, although it appears Trevor Siemian may be the most likely replacement if Wilson isn't available for that one.

Zach Wilson Injures Head, Won't Return Versus Miami

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (head) has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 15 versus the Miami Dolphins. He was taken to the locker room during the second quarter to get hydrated, according to the CBS broadcast. The former No. 2 pick finishes Sunday's game having completed just four of 11 passes for 26 yards. He also took four sacks and lost a fumble. Trevor Siemian will handle quarterback reps for the rest of this divisional clash.

Zach Wilson Hoping For Continued Success In Week 15

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson will be carrying some positive momentum from last week's win over the Houston Texans into a Week 15 divisional showdown with the Miami Dolphins. Wilson was initially listed on the team's injury report this week with a knee ailment but logged three full practices and is set to suit up on Sunday. Wilson effectively led New York's offense to 30 points against Houston, but the Dolphins could pose a bit more of a challenge, especially in Miami. Although they are dealing with several injuries on defense, the Dolphins have surrendered just over 19 points per game at home this season. Nonetheless, Wilson should be entering the contest with confidence and will likely be forced to throw the ball to keep up with Miami's offense. The 24-year-old still isn't a particularly enticing fantasy option, but he could be a serviceable QB2 in superflex leagues this week.

Zach Wilson Practices Through Knee Injury

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (knee) is on the Week 15 injury report but was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Wilson is dealing with a minor knee ailment that isn't expected to keep him from starting in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins. The 24-year-old excelled and had by far his best game of the season in last Sunday's blowout win over the Houston Texans when he went 27-for-36 for 301 yards and two touchdowns in his return to the starting role following a two-game benching. Wilson isn't all of the sudden on the QB1 radar after that performance, but he could be in a position to keep the positive momentum going this weekend against a Dolphins defense that is pretty beat up right now. The Jets could also have to take to the air often to keep up with Miami's explosive offense.

Zach Wilson Dealing With Knee Injury

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said that quarterback Zach Wilson (knee) is on the early Week 15 injury report but said Wilson should be fine for Sunday's contest against the Miami Dolphins. Wilson could be rested early in the practice week, but the 24-year-old should be fine to play this weekend following by far his best performance of the year in the surprising 30-6 win over the visiting Houston Texans on Sunday. Wilson stepped up to the plate after being benched the previous two games, going 27-for-36 for a season-high 301 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. The former first-rounder will be hoping to build on that outing in Week 15 against the division-rival Dolphins, but he'll be no more than a low-end QB2 option for fantasy managers in superflex leagues once again.

Zach Wilson Has Best Game Of Season In Week 14

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson completed 27 of his 36 pass attempts for 301 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in a 30-6 victory over the Houston Texans. Wilson added 12 yards rushing on three carries but did lose a fumble. The 24-year-old delivered his best showing of the season in his return to the starting lineup after being benched in Week 12. He connected with Randall Cobb and Breece Hall for scores in the second half and led the Jets to their best offensive output of the campaign. Although Wilson will remain a low-end fantasy QB2 going forward, he clearly raises the value of New York's weapons. His next challenge will come against the Miami Dolphins in Week 15.

Zach Wilson To Start In Week 14

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson will start in Week 14 against the Houston Texans on Sunday. Tim Boyle started the team's last two losses but was benched after halftime of the Week 13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons for Trevor Siemian. Now the Jets will go back to Wilson, who has gone 3-6 in his nine starts for the Jets in his third NFL season. There were conflicting reports earlier this week about Wilson's reluctance to take the starting gig back after being benched in favor of Boyle in Week 12. With Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) unlikely to return again in 2023, Wilson should serve as the Jets' starter under center the rest of the way as he tries to put some good tape out there. He's probably an upgrade over Boyle and Siemian but should still be regarded as a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues. Wilson has completed 59% of his passes, has been sacked 38 times and has lost five fumbles in 2023.

Zach Wilson To Start Again In Week 14 For Jets?

The New York Jets want to make a switch again at quarterback after benching Tim Boyle for Trevor Siemian in their Week 13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, and they are leaning towards Zach Wilson taking over. However, he is reportedly reluctant to step back in and the Jets are discussing their next steps. Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) reached out to Wilson in an effort to advise him to resume the starting role. Head coach Robert Saleh said he's not ready to name a starting QB for Week 14 against the Houston Texans. "Let's be clear, if he were reluctant to play, he wouldn't be here," Saleh said of Wilson. The 24-year-old QB is apprehensive due to perceived injury risk as it pertains to his future value to another organization beyond this season. Wilson is probably New York's best option to lead the offense as long as Rodgers is out, but it he'll remain nothing more than a low-end QB2 option if he starts in Week 14.

Zach Wilson Demoted To No. 3 On Depth Chart

The New York Jets announced on Monday that they will give the Week 12 start against the Miami Dolphins on Friday to Tim Boyle. They later announced that Trevor Siemian will be called up from the practice squad to serve as Boyle's backup, which means that Zach Wilson will be demoted to third string for the time being. Wilson was benched in the third quarter of the team's blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, and the 24-year-old's future with the organization is firmly in doubt after he has completed only 56.6% of his passes for 6.3 yards per attempt, 21 touchdowns and 25 interceptions since being the No. 2 overall pick int he 2021 draft. The move from Wilson to Boyle won't necessarily prove to be the answer for the Jets offense, although fantasy managers that have Breece Hall and Garrett Wilson sure hope it will be.
