Report: Jets plan to trade QB Zach Wilson in offseason

Is it possible a breakup between the Jets and Zach Wilson is already set in stone?

Jets head coach Robert Saleh was asked Monday about a weekend report by the Deseret News, Wilson’s hometown newspaper in Utah, that said the team told the 24-year-old quarterback he’ll be traded during the offseason, with Wilson and Saleh agreeing to part ways when the former No. 2 overall pick was benched last month.

Saleh did not deny the report in his response.

“My conversations with [Wilson] are to do everything he can to get ready to play a football game,” Saleh said Monday. “As far as all that other stuff is concerned, those are things I will leave for Joe [Douglas].”

There is a link to the story in this piece. The report makes sense, especially after Wilson was benched and an Athletic report said Wilson was reluctant to go back on the field after the team went with Tim Boyle but eventually cut him. The Post story said Rodgers, who tore his Achilles in Week 1, is expected to return to the Jets next season. Wilson could probably use a fresh start on another team but it may not be a starting role.
