Zach Wilson
Jets Sign Veteran QB Trevor Siemian

The New York Jets signed 31-year-old veteran QB Trevor Siemian, pending a physical.

Hopes for the Jets were sky-high entering the 2023 season only to be immediately dashed when Aaron Rodgers tore his Achilles after four snaps, sending the team into an immediate tailspin. The signing’s an obvious response to the anemic play of an offense currently dead last in points, plays, and yards per game. Just one day after assuring the media that Zach Wilson was the team’s “unquestioned starter” the Jets signed Trevor Siemian and his 220 career pass attempts off the street. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Trevor Siemian was last relevant for the Saints in 2021 posting a 108/1154/11/3 line with an 88.4 passer rating and 6.1 yards per attempt. It’s unclear if and when Siemian will play, but it’s hard to argue there’s more than one direction for this dysfunctional Jet offense to go; they are currently 34th or worse in terms of quarterback EPA/play, completion rate,  passer rating, and yards per attempt.
