If he’s going back to Utah in the offseason as a second year player who had a rocky rookie year there’s a zero percent chance he’s going to work out. Being a pro means living in your city full time. Home is NewJersey now.

He's coming back next week

Hahahahaaaaa not. 

Say whatever you want about the dude but by every single account, he is a gym rat/film junkie and will be 10 pounds heavier and twice as prepared next year. 

There is zero reason to be in NJ because he’s not allowed to interact with the coaching staff in the off-season.

This makes zero sense. 
 

He’s not even allowed in the building until OTAs.

I absolutely feel like dumping his college girlfriend to enter into an arranged marriage with one of history’s most cloistered debutantes would completely rehabilitate Zach Wilson’s image among his teammates. 

Wilson is better than Darnold. But our fanbase is broken. Jesus christ

😆

To be clear, that's not definitely happening. But let's just say they're both are newly single and "mutual people" in their life are trying to hook them up. 
 

Jesus christ I feel like this belongs in TMZ.

The journey from Browning Nagle to Zach Wilson has taken its toll. 

I’d take Quincy Carter at this point.  QB gossip over a guy who stunk this year is gonna get the jets nowhere .

Oh no! Wilson’s image needs to be rehabilitated amongst his teammates? Link?

They're going to try to trade for one. I wouldn't chalk it up as make-or-break though. Calvin Ridley seems like a dream scenario, but there's a lot of unknowns surrounding his status. Michael Thomas is someone to keep an eye on because he will be available. Sleeper candidate? Jerry Jeudy

I don't know for sure whether they'll look to sign Godwin or Robinson on the open market. They were the top 2 last year, but a lot has changed with both. Godwin coming off the ACL, but the Jets were prepared to make him among the highest paid receivers last year. As for Robinson, coming off a poor year, is a bit redundant with Davis, and turns 29 this August. 

I swear on everything holy about a week ago I had a thread all typed out asking who says no in a Mekhi Becton for Jerry Juedy swap.  I have no idea if that’s the type of trade they’d look at or if they are even willing to look at moving Becton but the Broncos are deep at WR and thin at Tackle.

That video where he gave out tickets on the airline that his uncle founded? Those dudes looked like they were in line at the DMV.

I don't think it will happen, but without a doubt there will be contact. I think the Broncos have a lot to figure out first (specifically at QB)

Love Ridley, I think you are spot on with a trade. I think Ridley, Thomas, Landry, and Cooper could all be targets.

You, honestly, believe the weirdest things to be absolute truths.  Like, some ridiculous sh*t.

Mahomes works out in Texas.

Josh Allen works out in California.

Deshaun Watson (f*ck him) works out in Miami, New York, and South Carolina.

Lamar Jackson works out in Florida.

Do you want me to keep going or have I made my point?

A pay per view event, live from Provo, where Zach Wilson and Taysom Hill compete to see who can throw a football through a tire from 15 yards out. Can’t imagine a better way to spend eleven consecutive hours of real time.

The brothers cousins roommate indicating he's homesick is not a good sign. Has Wilson bought a place in Jersey yet?

Nothing related to the QB is ridiculous. Quite literally everything matters. I know Jets fans have moved into the nothing actually matters mindset, but with the pro QB....everything that involves being all in matters.

A multi millionaire with a part time job playing an outdoor sport … no better place to train all winter then New Jersey!  

Zach can have zoom calls with the receivers working in Florida.  It will be great!

I think he is in those new condos practically spitting distance from the facility in Florham Park.  I think a lot of the younger Jets are there. They used to put them up in hotels in the area.

NJ has the second highest state tax rate in the US.  There is no reason why Zach should be spending any extra time in NJ.  The coaches have a year round job and have to live there.  The players should live in NV, TX or FL in the off season.  

Allen and Rodgers are California guys and choose to live there. 

My understanding is that you pay taxes based on your “domicile” and pay taxes to each state where you play a game.   So presumably Zach would pay NJ 8-9 games of taxes and then by state.  FL and TX games are no tax.  He applies those taxes as a credit to his domicile state, but if its Utah there is no extra tax.  

But getting to the punchline, I thought that players could work out at the facility in the off season.   For players like Becton, that would really be required.  Zach is 6-2/205.  There is no reason why he should not be 215 in July if he lays off his Adderall.   High reps/high protein/carbs.  Its pretty basic.
