Zach Wilson remained unsigned Wednesday, the only first-round draft pick to not have a deal done after San Francisco signed quarterback Trey Lance earlier in the day. “Obviously, from the business side of it, there's a lot of things that come into play,” coach Robert Saleh said. With Wilson, the No. 2 overall selection, still not signed, Mike White took the first snaps at practice with the Jets' starters.
Aaron Rodgers and Deshaun Watson appeared on the field at their teams’ first training camp practices. Lamar Jackson was absent from his after testing positive for COVID-19. Zach Wilson is still away and without a contract.
Jarrad Davis was in a tough spot on the field — and a dark place in his head. The once-promising linebacker was no longer a starter for the Detroit Lions, struggling to find a role and desperately trying to fend off the negative thoughts that were chipping away at his confidence and love for football. “I contemplated walking away,” Davis acknowledged Wednesday after his first practice with the New York Jets.
