Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson recorded 95 catches for 1,042 yards while playing with four different quarterbacks this season, but don't tell him he did a good job of turning lemons into lemonade.
Wilson told reporters on Monday that the 2023 season was “the worst year of my life” and that “football has never been this hard” at any other point in his life. He said the team should be able to succeed whether it's Aaron Rodgers or someone else playing quarterback because he sees other teams being able to adapt in ways the Jets haven't been able to respond since he's been on the team.
“What happened this season? It can't happen againWilson said, via Brian Costello of New York Post. “It's got to be better. We've got to make adjustments in the game. We've got to do things to counteract what we're getting and be able to put points on the board, because the two years I've been here, honestly, it's been tough. It's been tough.”
Rodgers is scheduled to return in 2024 and the Jets hope his presence can help end the league's longest running drought. Jets history says there are no guarantees things will get any better for Wilson than they did during his painful first two seasons in the NFL.
