The historically poor New York Jets benched quarterback Zach Wilson on Monday, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter, another blow for a player once considered the future of the franchise.

It was the third benching in the last 13 months for Wilson, who may have played his final game for the Jets. The 2021 No. 2 overall pick will be replaced by Tim Boyle, who starts Friday against the Miami Dolphins at MetLife Stadium, the source told Schefter.

The move has long-term implications for the Jets, whose grand plan was to have Wilson learn under Aaron Rodgers for a year or two before returning to the starting position — an arrangement approved by Rodgers. That no longer seems likely, as Wilson has fought his way out of the No. 2 spot.

Wilson was thrust into action in the fifth game of the season, when Rodgers went down with a torn Achilles. Under Wilson, the Jets have managed just nine touchdowns in nearly 10 complete games while posting the worst red zone and third-worst efficiency in modern history.

Coach Robert Saleh, who arrived with Wilson in 2021, stuck by the former BYU star until Sunday night, when he pulled him late in the third quarter of a 32-6 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Afterward, Saleh was noncommittal about his quarterback plans — a sure sign he had lost patience.

“When things aren’t getting done, changes have to be made, and I understand that,” Wilson said after the game – a 7-for-15, 81-yard performance in which he failed to complete a single pass towards a goal. wide receiver.

For the season, Wilson is ranked 30th out of 31 qualified passers in QBR (30.7), with just six touchdown passes. In three years, he is 11-20 as a starter, with 21 touchdowns and 25 interceptions.

Wilson was benched twice last season, prompting the organization to trade for Rodgers. Instead of acquiring a proven veteran to serve as a backup, the Jets opted to keep Wilson as Rodgers’ understudy — a move by general manager Joe Douglas that could have jeopardized the season.

Wilson is signed through 2024, with virtually no chance of picking up his fifth-year option for 2025. The deadline is early May 2024.

Boyle, 29, is an NFL journeyman who played for the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears. His only three starts came in 2021 for the Lions; he went 0-3, with three touchdowns and six interceptions. In Sunday’s relief outing, he completed 7 of 14 passes for 33 yards and an interception.

He was released at the end of the preseason and joined the practice squad. He was placed on the roster when Rodgers was injured.

Rodgers hopes to return Dec. 24 after Achilles surgery, but said that depends on whether the team makes the playoffs. They are not.

The Jets (4-6) have lost three straight games, scoring just 31 points. Their third-down efficiency is 23% and their red zone rate is 26%, both last in the NFL and worst since the 1970s when this data began being tracked.
