The New York Jets need to find answers at the quarterback position.
Losing Aaron Rodgers four plays into the season was obviously a big blow, and not many players would be able to fill in for such a talented guy.
Also, Zach Wilson has struggled mightily again, and it’s becoming painfully evident that he’s not the guy they need at this point in his development — perhaps ever.
With that in mind, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Jets have brought back veteran QB Trevor Siemian, pending a physical.
The 31-year-old Trevor Siemian was with the Jets in 2019. He spent this past summer with the Bengals. He has been with seven NFL teams and was a part of the Broncos’ team that won Super Bowl 50. https://t.co/bD2gHen8lj

Siemian, who was a part of the Denver Broncos’ Super Bowl-winning team years ago, was with the Cincinnati Bengals last summer and will now return to the team he left in 2019.
Needless to say, he may not be what the Jets need either, but he could be an upgrade over the ever-struggling Wilson.
HC Robert Saleh had stated that the Jets were going to roll with Wilson until Rodgers was able to come back, stating that they would add a veteran as his backup and that it wouldn’t be a competition.
But after watching their defense keep them in games and Wilson fail them over and over, they might be forced to change their stance.
Likewise, the Jets shouldn’t rule out the possibility of pursuing a proven veteran via trade.
The Minnesota Vikings are 0-3, and with Kirk Cousins in the final year of his deal, it wouldn’t be the worst idea to make a run at him, even if it’s just a rental until the end of the season.
