If Jets add veteran QB, Zach Wilson vows to “make that dude’s life hell in practice”

As Jets coach Robert Saleh has repeatedly explained that the team won’t be giving up on quarterback Zach Wilson (contrary to a report from Jay Glazer of Fox Sports that Wilson won’t be back), one important factor remained to be determined.

What does Zach Wilson want to do?

For all anyone knew, Wilson wanted out. Fresh start. New beginning. And all that crap.

As it turns out, Wilson seems to be willing to stay put, and to embrace any and all challenges. Asked by reporters on Monday about the possibility of the Jets bringing in a veteran quarterback, Wilson said: “I’m going to make that dude’s life hell in practice every day.”

Whether that matters remains to be seen, based on who the Jets would sign and, far more importantly, how much money the Jets would invest in him. Wilson is on the books for $9.308 million over the next two years, fully guaranteed. The more the Jets spend on a veteran, the more likely the veteran will play.

Then there’s the issue of the veteran currently on the roster. What if Mike White stays? You know, Mike Effin’ White? Player and fan favorite? If he stays, what happens?

So it will be a fascinating offseason for the Jets and their quarterback decisions. And it’s still possible that the Jets are trying to simply generate some/any leverage for a trade of the second overall pick in the 2021 draft.

However it plays out, this specific NFL offseason could be as compelling as the usual NBA offseason, which always ends up being far more interesting than the actual season.

    . . . Like by giving him wedgies and stuff.

  7. What does that even mean? Best thing he could do this offseason is keep his head down and his mouth shut.

  8. Wilson is like the gift that keeps on giving. It’s obvious he hasn’t had the first bit of media training for an NFL QB. Best guess is he goes to a QB guru this off-season to refocus and clean up his mechanics. In addition maybe he should also watch the Bull Durham scene about dealing with the press about 3 times per day until he gets it right.

  9. Love all the 20/20 hindsight with this guy. Everybody bashing him was all aboard the the hype train at the end of last season, especially after the milf incident. He bought that hype and clearly didn’t put in the work last off-season, leading to a big step back. Now that it’s all gone, he’ll put the work in this off-season and show up ready to earn qb1. He’ll be better, who knows if he’ll be any good though.

  10. This is hilarious. How did the Jets not see the red flags with this top 5 bust this time?

  11. They will sell you for a bag of chips. You are already making life hell on your GM.

  12. I am sure he will, he has already made the entire teams life that way for the last two years.

  13. Wilson to the chiefs for a 6th round pick. Give him a couple of years practicing under Andy Reid and he’ll probably be something
