The NY Jets face an uncertain future at the quarterback position this offseason, but one thing remains abundantly clear. Zach Wilson is not the answer — and it seems likely that he's played his last game with the organization that drafted him.

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer spoke about the Jets' QB situation Saturday morning and he revealed that the Jets are likely to move on from Wilson this offseason.

Glazer revealed that the Jets' organization has lost all confidence in Wilson and that he's lost all confidence in himself before finishing the segment by saying "expect the Jets to move on from him after this season."

This shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone who watched Wilson's performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night Football — or his performance against most opponents this year.

Wilson has struggled through a disaster of a 2022 season and it's hard to imagine the Jets will rely on him in any sort of capacity next year.

The NY Jets have mentally moved on from Zach Wilson

The nail in the coffin for Wilson's Jets' career (and quite possibly his NFL career) was the team's decision to bench him in favor of Chris Streveler on Thursday night.

With the game and likely the Jets' entire season on the line, the coaching staff trusted a 27-year-old journeyman, former CFL, and current practice squad quarterback who can barely complete a 30-yard pass instead of the player they drafted second overall.

There's no coming back from that. That was the strongest indicator to date that the Jets have mentally moved on from Wilson. In fact, that very well could have been the last time he steps on the field in a Jets jersey.

If the Jets have it their way, it seemingly will be.

Glazer also said that Mike White will be the starter again once he's cleared to return which could happen as soon as next week against the Seattle Seahawks — not that that should've been a question, in the first place.

If White is unable to play, the Jets might actually turn to a combination of Joe Flacco and Chris Streveler at quarterback. Head coach Robert Saleh's silence when asked if Wilson would start again next week speaks volumes.

The Jets don't want him anywhere near the field.
