Two of the Jets’ prized offensive rookies might not be ready to take the field when New York reports for training camp in just six days.

Alijah Vera-Tucker signed his rookie contract on Tuesday, leaving Zach Wilson and Elijah Moore as Gang Green’s last two unsigned 2021 NFL draft picks. Both are all but certain to sign at some point this summer, but have yet to put pen to paper.

The Jets have been down this road before with high-profile draft picks remaining unsigned just days before training camp kicks off. Most recently, New York and Sam Darnold did not come to an agreement on offset language in Darnold’s rookie contract until a couple of days into training camp.

Wilson and Moore are both key cogs in Mike LaFleur’s offense, making it pertinent for the Jets that they get their contracts done as soon as possible. Wilson is New York’s prized potential franchise quarterback, while Moore strung together a standout spring and skyrocketed up the depth chart as a result. The more practice time those two have during training camp, the better their prospects of producing right off the bat once the regular season rolls around are.

The Jets will begin training camp practices on July 28.
