The New York Jets are still fighting over their future with quarterback Zach Wilson.
Head coach Robert Saleh said the result of Wilson’s miserable performance against Jacksonville on Thursday Night Football before Christmas.
Now, it seems the front office is in lockstep with its head coach’s public commentary.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, New York plans to follow through on those words this offseason, with general manager Joe Douglas “not planning to shop Wilson” once this season is over.
Zach Wilson has been receiving support from his head coach Robert Saleh in recent weeks
Sources cited by Rapoport suggest Wilson is a ‘good teammate [and] has handled his demotion well and continues to work.’
There is hope and belief that he will ‘get well’ according to another source within the report.
Wilson was replaced by fourth-string quarterback Chris Streveler during the loss at Jacksonville after throwing 9-18 for 92 yards and an interception.

With Sunday’s season-defining game at Seattle just hours away, Wilson is on the inactive list with Joe Flacco preferred as Mike White’s backup.
A fan favorite, White has not played since a loss at Buffalo on Dec. 11 but will return as the Jets face former quarterback Geno Smith at Lumen Field.
Coming off a narrow loss, New York dropped two games to Detroit and the Jags. Only one win will do for the Gang Green in the Pacific Northwest if they want to keep their AFC wildcard hopes alive.
