Zach Wilson gives thoughts on New York Jets pursuing Deebo Samuel

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has made it clear he would have nothing against the Jets landing Deebo Samuel as he has called the wideout a "great player." Samuel has requested a trade from the San Francisco 49ers and the Jets are rumored as one of the teams interested in the All-Pro wide receiver.
The Jets went hard after Tyreek Hill earlier this offseason but the All-Pro wideout signed with the Miami Dolphins. “Obviously, Deebo is a great player. There’s definitely no hesitation there,” Wilson said, per The Post.
“Of course, anyone I think those guys are going to bring in that free-agency market would be, obviously a benefit for us, depending on what we’d have to give up or whatever, that’s not up to me. I guess all I can say is I really just trust what Joe [Douglas] and those guys are thinking about.
Whatever decision they happen to make there I’m going to be happy with it”.
Wilson aiming to bounce back in Year 2
Wilson had more interceptions that touchdowns in his rookie year as he finished the year with nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
Wilson has been studying the tape as he is determined to avoid the mistakes from his rookie season in Year 2. “I’m not out here necessarily learning the very basics of the offense anymore, now we’re expanding trying to take it a little bit further and how can we make those corrections,” Wilson said.
“The best part is I have that film of the good plays, but also the bad ones. The bad ones are the best ones to watch. How can we correct those and how can I be better, how can we be more efficient? The coaches have a lot of things they’re changing as well that we think can be better for us next year, just adapting to the roster that we have.
So, I really think these weeks coming up, of just being able to watch some tape, practice some stuff on the field, still take care of our bodies and then just being around the guys is definitely needed, for sure”.
