Quincy Wilson‘s release paves the way for New York Jets rookie cornerback Bryce Hall, who’s expected to play against the New England Patriots.
It’s officially Bryce Hall time. (Well, it’s not yet completely official.)
Adam Gase told the media Saturday afternoon that Hall’s opportunity has arrived, courtesy of Quincy Wilson’s release.
“Yeah, it opens a door for Bryce Hall,” Gase said when asked about Wilson’s release.
Hall, 23, has yet to appear in an NFL game. Drafted in the fifth round of the 2020 virtual NFL draft, the Virginia product came into the fold while recovering from a serious ankle injury sustained a year ago in college.
Considering the ills at the Jets cornerback position, Hall’s potential presence has been a much-anticipated event in New York Jets‘ land. Without Wilson around, it appears likely that Hall will be activated for Monday Night Football.
Hall tallied five interceptions, 38 passes defended, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and 154 total tackles in 42 collegiate contests.
