The New York Jets “don’t have any plans to succeed in out to Tom Brady, Joe Flacco, Philip Rivers, Blake Bortles or Ben Roethlisberger,” in accordance with The Athletic’s Dianna Russini.

Russini offered extra perception into the Jets’ method to changing Aaron Rodgers after the surefire Corridor of Famer suffered a torn Achilles.

“Although that is Wilson’s group, the Jets are exploring the veteran QB market,” she reported. “They advised every quarterback they spoke to that [Zach] Wilson is the starter and they might be coming in as a backup.”

Russini listed Colt McCoy and Chad Henne as gamers New York has spoken with instantly.

Fox Sports activities’ Jay Glazer reported Sunday the Jets are “pushing their chips of their desk on Zach Wilson.” He added the group does not consider any of the out there choices are higher than what it has with the 2021 first-round choose.

You may’t blame Jets followers for feeling apprehensive in regards to the thought of Wilson being the full-time starter for an additional 12 months. Whereas New York earned a win in Week 1, his closing stat line (14-of-21 for 140 yards, one landing and one interception) did not provide plenty of encouragement.

Even for many who consider in Wilson, heading into Week 2 with Tim Boyle because the backup is not going to work for a group with Tremendous Bowl aspirations.

Bringing Rivers or Roethlisberger merely is not the answer, although.

Rivers hasn’t performed since 2020, although San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed he would possibly’ve approached the previous Los Angeles Chargers and Indianapolis Colts star about suiting up if the Niners had reached Tremendous Bowl LVII.

Roethlisberger, in the meantime, retired after the 2021 marketing campaign and was exhibiting his age earlier than hanging up his cleats. His 6.2 adjusted yards per try had been his second-fewest over a full season, per Pro Football Reference. Large Ben had by no means been less of a threat to stretch opposing defenses down the sphere.

Extra broadly, Rodgers’ damage bolstered what was already a concern for the Jets coming into the 12 months. Throwing one other growing old quarterback behind this offensive line could possibly be a recipe for catastrophe.

New York’s entrance workplace is mainly caught after going all in on Rodgers and watching the technique instantly unravel. The pickings are all the time slim as soon as the season begins, and the entrance workplace has to function for now as if the four-time MVP will be back in 2024.

Regardless of the Jets’ plan to switch Rodgers appears to be like like ultimately, it is certain to be a serious downgrade within the brief time period.
