Standout: D.J. Reed, CB, NY Jets
It's flown a little under the radar, but one Jets player who is also having an excellent camp is D.J. Reed. The perennially underrated and overlooked Reed put together another strong day on Sunday.
Reed ran stride for stride with wide receiver Malik Taylor and knocked the ball away on a beautiful deep ball from Aaron Rodgers. This comes a few days after Reed made this (see tweet below) spectacular leaping pass breakup.
Reed is never going to dominant headlines the way that Sauce Gardner does, but the former Seattle Seahawks cornerback is one of the best players at his position in the NFL. He's proving that again this summer.
Dud: Zach Wilson, QB, NY Jets
Zach Wilson had strung together a few good practices before he took a step back on Sunday. The former second-overall pick finished just 4-of-8 in team drills, including three consecutive inaccurate passes that led to incompletions.
The only incompletion of Wilson's day that wasn't a result of an inaccurate pass came on a Mecole Hardman drop in red-zone drills. The ball hit Hardman in the hands and probably should have been caught, but Wilson probably put a little too much zip on the ball too.
Elsewhere, Wilson did have a nice completion over the middle of the field to undrafted wide receiver Jason Brownlee, but it was the lone highlight in an otherwise forgettable afternoon for the young QB.
Jets head coach Robert Saleh told reporters after practice that Wilson is slated to play in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game. The team will have the opportunity to get an extended look at their third-year quarterback.
