The team has been without an official quarterback since releasing Russell Wilson earlier in the year.

Zach Wilson was picked second overall in the 2021 NFL Draft by the Jets. He served as the team’s starting quarterback until they acquired Aaron Rodgers, after which he was named as the backup quarterback.
