The New York Jets are about to have another first-round bust in quarterback Zach Wilson.
A year after drafting Wilson with the second overall pick, the Jets have him on the bench.
However, the bench comes from his lousy performance this season.
But will this be his last season in a Jets uniform, or can he redeem himself?
Head coach Robert Saleh gives Wilson a lifeline
While Wilson is benched for Mike White, his head coach still believes in him.
With Robert Saleh believing that Wilson is “going to be the future of this franchise,” he gives him a lifeline.
“We have not wavered in our belief that Zach Wilson will be the future of this franchise. It is my full intention that he return to the football field at some point this year.” -Robert Saleh#Jets

While those comments were before White’s performance, he hasn’t changed his mind.
However, a former Jets general manager has a different opinion.
Former Jets GM believes Wilson’s time is up in 2022
Former Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum feels White is the best quarterback on the team.
With him believing that White is the “greatest player in football”, he is indicating that he feels Wilson won’t play anymore in 2022.
“Mike White is a better football player than Zach Wilson. What are we talking about here?”

However, during his segment on ESPN Stand up!a co-host points out why he feels Saleh is giving Wilson hope in 2022.
With quarterback injuries of late, Domonique Foxworth sees Saleh’s message as one directed at Wilson.
He feels he can keep the young quarterback motivated as they might need him this season.
While the team does have Joe Flacco, he’s getting old and may not return in 2023.
So even with White replacing Wilson this season, the former first-round pick will still be wearing a Jets uniform after 2022.
