Jets’ QB Zach Wilson sends message with OTA attendance amid Aaron Rodgers trade talks uncertainty

The four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers trade dispute is still lingering because the Packers and the Jets are still unable to reach an agreement. In this context, Zach Wilson, another quarterback, appeared in the Jets’ program and gave the entire NFL community some insightful hints.

NFL world reacts to huge Zach Wilson move

The Jets selected the former BYU quarterback as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Among several talented young quarterbacks at the time, Wilson was selected in the second round.

Zach Wilson started all 13 games in 2021 as the starting quarterback and threw for 2,334 yards, 213 completions on 383 attempts, nine touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. Zach also had a 3-10 record by that point. Unfortunately, he suffered a knee injury during the preseason, missing the first three games of the season.

Will Zach Wilson be able to reclaim his spot on the Jets roster?

Much speculation has been heard regarding whether the team is now looking to replace Zach at quarterback with Rodgers following Wilson’s injury. Monday marked the start of the Jets’ offseason program. Despite the rumors, Zach was seen in OTA, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.

The trade dispute with Arod has since grown more difficult to comprehend and cast doubt on. Earlier, the Jets were interested in Aaron, and the quarterback had also expressed a desire to fill their starting quarterback position. In the mids of it all, the team posted a mysterious comment on Rodgers’ enigmatic post

Although the trade has not yet taken place, both teams almost certainly believe they are in the driver’s seat in negotiations for the quarterback. In this regard, Rodgers ascribed blame to the Packers, claiming their asking price was excessive. According to reports, the Green Bay Packers are asking the New York Jets to trade their quarterback in exchange for a 2023 second-round pick and a 2024 first-round guaranteed pick.

Although Wilson’s future with the Jets appeared to be quite bleak when the Jets and AR himself showed interest in themselves, the Jets’ head coach Robert Saleh expressed optimism about Zach’s future with the team at the end of 2022.

What did Jets’ head coach Robert Saleh say?

“The plan for Zach hasn’t changed,” Robert said. “I still think he has a future here. I still think he’s going to be a really good quarterback. He needs time to just kind of sit back and continue the development that we were trying to re-kick-start, if you will, after the New England game. We still have him in our future and in our plans.”
