The 2022 season couldn’t have gone any worse for sophomore quarterback Zach Wilson.
Surprisingly, it may not end up being the end of him in the Big Apple.
According to reports, New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas does not have plans to trade his 2021 second-overall pick this offseason.
Rather, the team plans to work with him to try and improve, as they feel that he is a smart and capable quarterback who has handled his demotions this season well.

Jets general manager Joe Douglas does not plan to shop Wilson this offseason, sources say. The team views Wilson as an incredibly hard worker, a good teammate and very smart. He has handled his demotions well and kept working.
As one source said simply, “He’s going to get better.”
This, of course, is the same sentiment that Jets head coach Robert Saleh has been echoing throughout the season. He was critical of today’s “instant coffee” world, where people are reluctant to take the time to allow things (such as struggling quarterbacks) to develop.
Whether or not the Jets stand by their word once the offseason rolls around is another story, however, as a Mike White’s play down the stretch could alter the thinking within the Jets’ front office.
