The Jets season was put in jeopardy just four plays into their first game. Aaron Rodgers tore his achilles putting him out for the remainder of the year. The Jets then went to Zach Wilson who looked like a game manager at best on New York’s way to a gutty win over the Buffalo Bills.
The next steps for the Jets likely start with giving the former No. 2 pick Zach Wilson a chance to be a capable starter. He did lead the Jets to a win over a top team in the NFL in week one after all. If he is too much of a liability the Jets may look to sign a veteran QB or trade for one.
The biggest name being thrown around is Tom Brady who retired just last year. Last season he was third in the NFL is passing yards. Getting Brady seems like a long shot thought. They could also go after a QB trying to get back into the league like Cam Newton or Colin Kaepernick who bring a running ability to a team who wants to run the ball. Matt Ryan is another veteran who retired last year that comes to mind.
Lastly, a trade for a QB could be in the works. Andy Dalton, Jameis Winston, and former Jet, Mike White, come to mind.
The Jets still have a team that can make the playoffs without an elite QB like Aaron Rodgers but if they do have a quality QB, whether that is Zach Wilson or someone else, they can make a Super Bowl run.
