Things haven't gone well for Zach Wilson in New York. Wilson was selected as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft to become this team's franchise quarterback. That clearly hasn't worked out.
The BYU product has developed trouble with his mechanics and confidence throughout his time in New York. Across three seasons, Wilson completed 57% of his passes for 6,293 passing yards, 23 passing scores, and 25 interceptions. Additionally, he finished last in the NFL QBR in both 2021 and 2022.
New York traded for Aaron Rodgers in April 2023 and the plan was for Wilson to sit on the bench and learn from the Hall-of-Fame signal caller this season. That never came to fruition when Rodgers went down in Week 1 and Wilson was thrust right back into action.
Now it looks like both sides are ready to move on and Rodgers alludes to that idea.
The four-time MVP candidate was in Green Bay for 18 seasons before being dealt to the Jets. He understands first-hand the benefits of switching locations and thinks it can help Wilson. A potential move would allow Wilson to reset and start fresh.
It can be tough for a player to stay in the same situation where he hasn't shown much success. The 24-year-old still has the athleticism and tools needed to play in this league. Wilson's problems stem from the mental makeup of the game. New surroundings could be a good thing for both Wilson and New York.
