The NY Jets held the second official practice of their 2021 training camp on Thursday. Of course, the predominant storyline encompassing the day was the continued absence of rookie quarterback Zach Wilson.
Wilson did miss his second consecutive practice to begin training camp, but not too long after practice had concluded, the Jets managed to reach an agreement with their prized rookie.
Wilson will report to training camp tomorrow putting to bed an unnecessary saga that went on for far too long. But enough about Wilson. After all, he wasn't even present for Thursday's practice.
Instead, the Jets had a number of standouts who managed to impress in spite of the absence of QB1. In fact, at least one player on this list found success because of Wilson's absence.
The first few days of training camp are always somewhat quiet. Teams tend to take it easy with players practicing without pads to get them up to NFL speed.
But that doesn't mean you can't take away a thing or two from the practices — especially when it comes to the skill players.
So with that in mind, which players stood out the most from the Jets' second practice of training camp? We take a look at the three most notable standouts.
