The latest in "2021 was a hot garbage QB draft" news.

🚨 🚨 🚨

Former #Jets starting QB and No. 2 pick Zach Wilson is on the move. Sources say he’s being traded to the #Broncos, hoping for a fresh start.

The deal includes a late-round pick swap (6th for a 7th) and NYJ will pay some of Wilson’s roughly $5.5M salary.

The timing of this is certainly interesting.  Hard to believe the Jets would take a QB at 10 or move up to take a QB.  They are probably just going to sign some vet back up and draft at positions that could help the team right away.  They are probably just happy to be rid of Wilson.

And the trade makes even less sense for DEN.  Unless they think they can resurrect Wilson's career.

The logic is the Jets get *something* for Wilson, and the Broncos, who currently have a single QB on the roster and aren’t in a drafting position to get one of the top 4 this year, now have someone to bring to training camp.  There’s not much more to it than that.

Yep.  One team takes a very low cost flyer on a guy who has some level of "potential"; the other dumps a draft bust.

I imagine he'll eventually get in at some point.  The list of relatively mediocre QBs in the HOF is pretty extensive. 

28-3 doesn't happen and it becomes more clear cut "yes".
