Zach Wilson’s New York Jets teammates have his back after social media drama arises

The most dormant portion of the NFL offseason has suddenly sprung to life after the surfacing of social media drama involving New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson.

Many of the details in this story are purely speculative and have not been confirmed, so I won’t go into too much detail, but this video covers everything that has happened in the past couple of days to create this newfound buzz around the Jets’ franchise signal-caller.

In case you were wondering how this drama has gone over with Wilson’s Jets teammates, have no fear; it appears that Wilson’s teammates are on his side. Many Jets players have indirectly commented on the situation with subtle posts on social media.

Offensive tackle Mekhi Becton reacted to the news by sharing the famous clip of Terrell Owens declaring, “That’s my quarterback”, accompanied by a series of red exclamation points and laughing emojis.

Rookie cornerback Sauce Gardner responded to Becton’s post with a snapshot of former NBA player Juwan Howard giving a smile of approval.

Six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Chad Johnson reacted by labeling Zach Wilson as the “GOAT” (Greatest Of All Time). Wilson’s teammate Elijah Moore echoed Johnson’s sentiment, stating “No cap!” (which basically means “no lie”).

Cornerback Michael Carter II also appeared to agree with Johnson’s take as he retweeted the post.

Tight end C.J. Uzomah, a new weapon acquired this offseason to bolster Wilson’s development, seemed to comment on the situation by tweeting, “Twitter is an amazingly crazy place…I love it”.

Hang in there, everyone – we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Only eight days remain until the Jets’ rookies report to Florham Park for training camp. We’ll finally be able to talk about some real football.
