the next day Lost Zach Wilson in a knee injury, Jets moved to win a veteran quarterback.
According to sources, Jets could win Joe Flacco from the Eagles and trade for a conditional 6th round pick in the 5th round based on play time. Jet would be without Wilson suffering a correct PCL sprain in a 54-13 defeat to the Patriots on Sunday for 2-4 weeks. Mike White is expected to face Bengals this week and Jets is expected to speed up Fraco and back him up.
Flacco spent last season as a backup to Sam Darnold’s Jets, playing four to five games. The 36-year-old threw 6 touchdowns, 3 intercepts and 864 yards. Jets lost all his start.
Fraco departed as a free agent in the off-season and signed with the Eagles. Jets was interested in returning Fraco to the off-season, but wanted to go to the team he thought he had a chance to start. Jets stuck to drafting Wilson, who was second overall, and Flaco knew he had no chance to start with them. The Eagles started Jalen Hurts throughout the season, but Gardner Minshew is also backing up.
Josh Johnson is on the Jets practice team, but it’s clear that he doesn’t trust him enough to make White’s backup. Joe Douglas, Jets’ general manager, was an Area Scout for Ravens and defended Fraco when Baltimore drafted in 2008.
