Zach Wilson can flush the basketball cleanly

New York Jets running back Michael Carter first broke the news that quarterback Zach Wilson “can really like jam” on Tuesday while appearing on “Good Morning Football.”

After an extensive investigation, this was confirmed on Wednesday when Wilson shared a video of himself flushing one down with two hands on his Instagram Story.

It didn’t stop there, however.

Wilson took it a step further, challenging former Jets quarterback Josh McCown to a dunk contest.

McCown joined the Jets in 2017 and had the best season of his career. The wily veteran set new personal highs in passing yards (2926), passing touchdown (18) and completion percentage.

After bouncing around for a few years, McCown officially retired in 2019. His most recent endeavor was his candidacy for the Houston Texans head coaching position.

As far as basketball is concerned, don’t sleep on McCown, or you may just up like the people at this charity event.

It’s been four years since that video was taken, so it remains to be seen if he’s still got it. I’m betting on Zach Wilson, whether it’s on a basketball court or a football field.

But hey, to imagine two quarterbacks going at it in a custom slam-dunk contest—one nearly doubling the other’s age—isn’t a bad idea whatsoever. In the end, Michael Carter knew exactly what he was telling the world earlier this week.
