Finally Denver Broncos signed a quarterback Zach Wilson from Jets.

Specifics of the Broncos’ QB trade Zach Wilson disclosed that he was acquired on Monday from the Jets.

The small print of Monday’s transaction, which transferred quarterback Zach Wilson of the Jets to the Denver Broncos, has been made available to the public.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Wilson and No. 256 overall were acquired by Denver in exchange for No. 203 as part of the pick-swap transaction. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Broncos also decided to divide Wilson’s $5.5 million contract, meaning they would be responsible for $2.75 million in 2024.
Wilson, the second overall pick in the 2018 draft, finished 33 career starts with a 12-21 record, more interceptions (25) than touchdowns (23) and a 57.0% completion percentage. As a result, Wilson lost favor in the Big Apple. Out of 38 qualifiers, he was ranked 34th among quarterbacks by Pro Football Focus.

The Broncos had been planning Wilson’s acquisition for “weeks,” according to Dianna Russini of The Athletic. They believed the 24-year-old still had “tons of talent and potential” that offensive-minded head coach Sean Payton could use.

Wilson and Jarrett Stidham are reportedly in competition for Denver’s starting position. The team is still considering the option of adding a rookie signal-caller to the position, though.
“Expect the Broncos to continue working behind the scenes to see if they have enough to move up in the draft for a QB, otherwise all other options are on the table,” Russini wrote on social media on Monday. “I was told this front office is exploring it all.”
