Zach Wilson knows where he stands with the New York Jets, and it’s not a spot he was hoping to be at after a terrible season in 2022.
If there were any doubts about whether the New York Jets were proceeding under the assumption that Aaron Rodgers would be their quarterback for the 2023 season, head coach Robert Saleh made it clear on Monday while speaking about 2021 first-round pick Zach Wilson.
“He’s our No. 2,” he told reporters.

Aaron Rodgers publicly announced his intentions to play for the Jets on March 15 after previously meeting with team brass in southern California.
However, a trade between the Jets and Packers has not yet come to fruition, leaving the Jets in quarterback limbo as they attempt to get things sorted out. Compensation seems to be an issue for both sides.
Either way, Saleh is happy to see how the Jets have become a destination for players around the league.
“We’ve come a long way in two years,” Saleh said. “To have a guy of his caliber, and really there’s a lot of guys who want to come here and play, and there’s a lot of excitement around the organization and it’s a cool thing to be a part of. So, hopefully, we can just continue moving forward and capitalize on the momentum.”
Rodgers isn’t the only big-name star who could end up donning a Jets uniform in 2023 as free agent receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has an interest in coming to New York as well.
Right now, having Rodgers and Beckham on the roster remains a bit of a hypothetical, but Zach Wilson’s No. 2 spot seems to be etched in stone.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
