Robert Saleh Expresses Optimism About Zach Wilson’s Contract Situation

Jets head coach Robert Saleh spoke to the media the day before training camp practices are scheduled to begin.

He offered some good news and some bad news. The good news is all players have reported to camp with one exception. The bad news is the exception is a very significant one, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson who still hasn’t agreed to a contract. Saleh did seem to express some optimism that a deal will be done.

Saleh also expressed optimism about some of the players who were placed on injury lists last week.

The head coach also discussed a surprising position battle.

I think many of us assumed Moses would get the starting job when he signed. Apparently the incumbent, Fant, has a chance to retain the job. Based on track records, I would assume Moses starts, but there is of course nothing wrong with competition. If Fant looks better, there wouldn’t be many objections to him starting.

There is also some good news about second year left tackle Mekhi Becton.
