Probably time to go their separate ways

It’s probably time to move on.

Zach Wilson (concussion) will not start the Jets’ season finale in New England, so some have speculated that his Jets career is over.

His hometown paper, The Deseret News, reported on December 8, that Jets coach Robert Saleh promised Wilson the organization would trade him after the season.

“Sources close to the situation confirmed to the Deseret News that the Jets have told Zach Wilson he will be traded after the season,” wrote Doug Wilson of the Deseret News.

A divorce would probably be best for both sides.

Wilson could use a fresh start elsewhere, and since the Jets obviously aren’t going to pick up his fifth-year option, they might as well get something for him now, instead of nothing when he becomes a free agent in 2025.

Things just didn’t go as planned for former BYU star during his three seasons with the Jets.

“Obviously, there are things that I know he wishes he could have back,” Saleh said. “I know there’s a lot of things that he improved on. Some things were out of his control, but I’ve said it and I’ll say it again, I think he’s going to have a long career in this League.”

And would probably be best to have that “long career” elsewhere.

The Jets’ QB next season will be Aaron Rodgers, and they clearly need to do, what they obviously should have done this season, have a veteran backup as the #2, not Wilson, who is still developing, and learning how to read defenses.

Why they didn’t have a veteran #2 this year, and had Wilson one snap away from having to start, which happened after four plays when Rogers blew out his Achilles, is the $64,000 question.

But you don’t need to be a Jets insider to realize Wilson needs a change of scenery.
