In fact, Wilson has remained completely out of the public eye for most of the summer. That hasn't prevented some of his "dirty laundry" from being aired out on social media as a result of a newfound relationship between his ex-girlfriend and ex-best friend.
Everyone from his current Jets teammates to former players to NFL analysts to, of course, the masses on social media have discussed Wilson's "antics" with the majority of commentary coming in the form of praise.
But Wilson himself had yet to comment on the ordeal. That was up until Wednesday when he spoke for the first time since the original story about his summer hijinks emerged.
Wilson shared a post on Instagram where he jokingly commented that he had "poor cell service," before asking "what I miss?" Wilson is no doubt aware of the story, but he spent this past weekend working out with teammates in Idaho.
NFL Network's Peter Schrager even reported that he heard "great things" from those in attendance for Wilson's "offensive getaway." Rather than focusing on the social media drama, Wilson had other, more important, things to attend to.
But he still made sure to give the people a little something with this legendary Instagram post.
NY Jets quarterback Zach Wilson poked fun at his recent relationship drama
Wilson's hilarious response garnered plenty of attention, most notably from his teammates who replied with comments ranging from "legendary" to "that's my QB."
The likes of Michael Carter, Garrett Wilson, C.J. Uzomah, Braxton Berrios, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Breece Hall, Ty Johnson, Jeff Smith, Hamilcar Rashed Jr., Trevon Wesco, and many other Jets players had responses.
It wasn't only Jets players, however. Other NFL stars such as Kenny Pickett, Trey Lance, Pat Freiermuth, Jarrett Stidham, Kyle Van Noy, and Zack Moss weighed in with their own thoughts.
Even the likes of NBA superstar Donovan Mitchell and USA soccer star Christian Pulisic shared their thoughts on Wilson's caption. Talk about a legendary Instagram post.
If a Jets quarterback is going to make headlines for off-field reasons, I think most fans would rather it be something like this as opposed to having mononucleosis/seeing ghosts, getting punched by a teammate, or eating a hot dog on the sideline.
Zach Wilson has quickly become a cult favorite around the NFL in just a matter of days. If that's any kind of omen, Wilson could be in for a monster 2022 season.
