The Zach Wilson era with the New York Jets may be coming to an end after this season.
Many believe the Jets will move on from Wilson, the 2021 No. 2 overall pick, after just two seasons.
Wilson has shown almost no improvement in his two years as the Jets’ starter, and has been benched on two different occasions this season for undrafted quarterbacks Mike White and Chris Streveler on Thursday night.
The Jets’ offense has moved the ball significantly better with the two replacements than it has with Wilson. That is not a good sign for a player that was selected with the No. 2 pick in the draft and expected to be a franchise player.
The only reason Wilson got his starting job back the past two weeks has been an injury to White. Wilson has not exactly taken advantage of the opportunity.
In 22 career games he has completed just 55 percent of his passes with only 15 touchdowns to 18 interceptions. He has failed to reach the 160-yard mark in six of his appearances this season, including two of his past three starts.
