1. Zach Wilson, QB, NY Jets

This is bound to be a controversial one. It's far from a guarantee that Zach Wilson's Jets career is over. If you listen to what Robert Saleh and others have said publicly, the Jets seem to be committed to developing him for the foreseeable future.

Even if Wilson isn't the starter in 2023, the Jets have made it clear that they plan to have him on their roster. At least...that's what they say.

You don't have to look far back in NFL history to find examples of teams publicly expressing their commitment to a quarterback, only to move on from that player weeks or months later.

From Josh Rosen to Russell Wilson, it's been proven time and time again that teams will publicly support their quarterbacks even if they're open to trading them. That's likely the case with the Jets.

Wilson isn't going to be the starter in 2023. It would be organizational malpractice if he even returned as the primary backup. At best, Wilson is looking at a third-string job in New York where he does little more than just take up a roster spot.

If some team meets the Jets' asking price for Wilson, they won't hesitate to move him. And even if he's on the roster next season, it's unlikely that he receives an opportunity to play, barring injury.

It's completely feasible that Wilson will be with the Jets in 2023. It's even possible that he receives another opportunity to start in the future.

But as of right now, I'd say it's more likely that we've seen the last of Wilson with the Jets. That Jacksonville Jaguars game sealed his fate.
