Jets' QB Situation a Mess After Rodgers Injury
The New York Jets have not signed a replacement for Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a season-ending injury in the first game of the season.
The Jets are concerned about their salary cap situation after acquiring Rodgers.
They have spent $280 million this season, the second-highest amount in the league.
The Jets contacted Matt Ryan and Chad Henne about replacing Rodgers, but both players declined.
The Jets had no choice but to give Zach Wilson another chance at the starting QB position.
Wilson has struggled in the first three games of the season, completing just 50% of his passes and averaging just 14 points per game.
The Jets offense has been predictable, making it easier for their opponents to defend.
Wilson is on pace to have the worst three-year stretch by a quarterback in NFL history.
Coach Robert Saleh has stated his support for Wilson, but he acknowledged that Wilson needs to play better.
The Jets are facing a difficult situation with their quarterback position.
