Zach Wilson and Corey Davis head south to get some reps in
In March 2021, the New York Jets signed wide receiver Corey Davis and followed that up by drafting quarterback Zach Wilson with the second overall pick in the NFL draft one month later. In year one, the duo played only seven games together due to injury.
Despite having limited time on the field together, the two seemed to be forming a noticeable connection. That has seemingly carried over into the offseason, as Wilson and Davis met up for a workout in Nashville, TN. Davis shared photos to his Instagram story on Tuesday.

In the last image he posted to his Instagram story, Davis claimed it’s “only up from here” – something all Jets fans would love to be true.
As it stands currently, Davis could start outside or in the slot for the Jets this upcoming season. In either case, targets will come his way and he’ll certainly be a big part of the offense as it attempts to improve upon a somewhat disappointing 2021 season.
When newly-signed tight end C.J. Uzomah took part in his introductory press conference last Thursday, he stated his intentions to meet up with Wilson and Davis in Nashville.
“I’m going to meet up with him [Zach Wilson]. My offseason place is in Nashville, he is in Nashville right now throwing with Corey [Davis], so I’m going to try to get back there before he leaves,” said Uzomah. “We’re gonna meet up, we’re gonna throw, we’re gonna talk to one another.”
While it is uncertain whether or not Uzomah has made it back to Nashville yet, the duo of Wilson and Davis may very well turn into a trio soon enough.
In the meantime, Wilson and Davis’ late-March workouts should give Jets fans confidence about the current standing of the team’s chemistry. After all, the better the chemistry, the more we get to see Wilson-Davis bombs like this:

Davis is entering the second year of a three-year, $37.5 million contract he signed with the Jets in March 2021. In the first year of his Jets career, Davis caught 34 of 59 targets for 492 yards and four touchdowns in seven games.
