The Denver Broncos have several options to consider regarding their quarterback situation this offseason. Despite having Russell Wilson under a hefty contract, and the potential availability of Jarrett Stidham, whom Head Coach Sean Payton sees as a starter, the team may explore other avenues, including drafting a rookie or pursuing a trade for a quarterback. However, it appears unlikely that they will pursue New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson.

According to The Athletic’s Zack Rosenblatt, there is a sense that the Broncos may target a young quarterback in the draft or through a trade, but Zach Wilson is not among their targets. The Jets have allowed Wilson, the second overall pick in the 2021 draft, to seek a trade, as confirmed by Jets general manager Joe Douglas during the scouting combine.

While Wilson has shown promise, completing 60.1% of his passes for 2,271 yards, eight touchdowns, and seven interceptions in his rookie season, there are concerns about his fit in Sean Payton’s offense, which emphasizes accuracy and timing. Some analysts believe Wilson’s tendency for off-schedule plays and inconsistent decision-making may not align well with Payton’s system.

Despite the possibility that the Broncos could wait for the Jets to make a decision on Zach Wilson’s future, it remains uncertain whether he would be a suitable fit for Payton’s scheme, echoing the uncertainties surrounding Russell Wilson’s fit with the team last season.
