Saleh told the kid he would be trade, now maybe not

On December 8, Doug Robinson the Deseret News, Zach Wilson’s hometown paper, reported:

“Sources close to the situation confirmed to the Deseret News that the Jets have told Zach Wilson he will be traded after the season. Wilson and coach Robert Saleh agreed to a mutual parting following the benching,” wrote Robinson.

But things might have changed on that front.

Jets owner Woody Johnson said on Monday in Orlando at the NFL’s League Meeting: “If we don’t trade [Wilson], we’re going to keep him.”

But he also said that Wilson probably needs a change of scenery.

“From his standpoint, it’s probably better if [Wilson] changes faces and he gets to a new (team),” Johnson said. “He can wipe the slate clean in that way. I think that would probably be better for him.”

So this situation is clearly up in the air at this point.
