Matt Ryan Not Interested In QB Job

Where do Robert Saleh and company go from here? The head coach has said that the team won’t be looking into making a quarterback change this coming week, and that he believes Zach Wilson currently gives them the best chance to win.

The New York Jets are back to where they were a year ago. After acquiring Aaron Rodgers in the offseason only to lose him for the year just a few plays in, the team is struggling with Zach Wilson as their starting quarterback.

New York Jets Rumors: Matt Ryan Is Not Interested In QB Job

After coming up with a big Week 1 victory over a division opponent, they’ve scored just 20 total points in the past two games, suffering losses to the Cowboys and Patriots. Frustration seemed to boil over on Sunday against New England, as sideline outbursts seemed to show unhappiness within New York’s offense.

According to Matt Ryan himself, he is not interested in taking the job. It was reported on Monday that his agent did his job in exploring all of the possibilities, but that the veteran QB won’t be under center this year for the Jets.

But in the week leading up to the team’s Week 3 game against New England, the name Matt Ryan began to pop up as a serious possibility for New York. Ryan played and started 12 games last season for the Indianapolis Colts as something of a stop gap between quarterbacks for that franchise, and his numbers weren’t great. He threw 13 interceptions to his 14 touchdowns, and had the lowest passer rating of his career in 2022.

“No, not on my end. I’ve got no interest in doing that right now. I’m enjoying what I’m doing.”

But desperate times call for desperate measures for the Jets, and they apparently had been working the phones with Ryan’s agent during the past week.
