A lot can happen between now and the regular season, and there's no guarantee that the Jets stand pat with their current backup options when the preseason ends and final cuts are made.

But based on merit and performance, Mike White has been the Jets' second-best quarterback in camp.

The team has afforded Mike White and James Morgan the entire offseason and summer to get reps and acclimated to Mike LaFleur's offense.

Both young players have practice squad eligibility, and that could be their destination during the season. But for now, the edge goes to Mike White.

The Jets season is all about Zach Wilson and his development. Any other quarterback taking snaps during the regular season is a scenario that Jets fans don't want to envision or contemplate.

Keeping two quarterbacks on the 53 seems risky, but the flexible roster rules make this a likelihood and a necessity.
