It appears New York Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson has ‘likely’ picked his jersey number.
During the three-day rookie minicamp, the 21-year-old came jogging out of the tunnel donning a No. 2 jersey which sent social media into a panicked craze.
Jets officials when reached for comment said Wilson and any other rookie’s jersey numbers were not official.
The former BYU quarterback was available to the media after day two of camp and talked more about his jersey number decision:
“I’m still deciding, but most likely it’ll be No. 2. Just mixing it up,” Wilson said. “Doing something new. I like any single-digit numbers and it’s kind of cool that I was the second pick, that’s a cool reason to switch it up. There really wasn’t too much thought behind it but I just think it’s a cool number.”
