Zach Wilson continues to build chemistry with his new NY Jets teammates, working out with Corey Davis and others in Tampa.
The Zach Wilson offseason tour continues, making a pit stop in central Florida.
After making waves around social media for staying on the grind while on a family vacation – throwing around at a golf course and watching film during a poker game – Wilson has returned to the States and is already back to putting in the work with his New York Jets teammates.
Wilson worked out in Tampa, FL with wide receivers Corey Davis and Keelan Cole. Also present were fellow quarterbacks James Morgan and Mike White.

Morgan and White will be competing for the backup quarterback spot behind Wilson on the Jets’ depth chart. Neither has thrown a regular-season pass in the NFL – Morgan has yet to throw a preseason pass. White tossed 138 preseason passes for the Cowboys from 2018-19.
Both young quarterbacks have ties to the Sunshine State where they practiced alongside Wilson, albeit not to central Florida.
Morgan spent two years at Florida International University in University Park, just outside of Miami. White graduated from high school in Fort Lauderdale.
Cole and Davis – each entering their first years as Jets after coming to New York via free agency – will aim to establish firm roles in one of the NFL’s deepest wide receiver rooms.
Davis will be looking to prove he is worthy of his three-year, $37 million contract. Cole hopes to use a new environment to show the full extent of his capabilities after being hindered by years of bad quarterback play in Jacksonville. He stole the show at OTAs and could make a play for a starting role.
Cole also had a little fun in Tampa. In one of the photos he shared, the former Jag decided to lock up Davis one on one, per IG.
It’s not exactly a position player pitching in the late innings, but you get the idea.
Perhaps Coles’ most popular photo share is that of the Jets together as a group. Wilson, Davis, Morgan and White all joined the Jets’ new receiver for a photo.
As for Wilson, getting on the same page with all of the aforementioned players will be crucial in helping them achieve their goals and helping himself achieve his own.
And he clearly knows it.

The Utah kid has embraced his role as the franchise quarterback of an NFL organization, doing a tremendous job of putting in the time and effort to gel with his new teammates throughout the first few months of his professional career.
Love to see it.
