Don’t expect Jets to pick a quarterback


As part of The Post’s preview of the 2022 NFL Draft, we examine what the Jets could do at each position. Next up: running backs.

The Jets are bringing back the three quarterbacks they ended the 2021 season with, so don’t expect any movement at that position this draft weekend.

Last year, the Jets made a splash at No. 2 overall by taking Zach Wilson out of BYU. Wilson struggled as a rookie but had some promising moments and didn’t turn the ball over late in the season. The focus of this year’s offseason for the Jets is Wilson.

The team signed veteran Joe Flacco as Wilson’s backup. The Jets went into last season without a veteran at the position, but general manager Joe Douglas struck a midseason deal with the Eagles to take on Flacco, who ended up starting a game. The Jets made it clear after the season that they wanted Flacco to return in the backup role in 2022, and the two sides struck a deal last month.

Mike White, who had a brief star turn in place of Wilson last season, signed his restricted free-agent call and will be back unless another team makes him a surprise offer that the Jets don’t want to match . White showed potential in his 400-yard rush against the Bengals but stumbled on a subsequent start against the Bills. The Jets still believe in White and he will get a chance to be a developmental quarterback behind Wilson and Flacco.

Douglas can sign an undrafted quarterback to cover some of the spring and camp reps, but he shouldn’t be drafting this year. Don’t expect Jets to pick a quarterback
