The Jets announced a significant change to their starting quarterback on Monday, benching Zach Wilson in favor of Tim Boyle. They also announced that Trevor Siemian, who has been on the practice squad since signing with the team, will serve as Boyle’s backup. Siemian officially made the team’s active roster on Tuesday. Additionally, they added cornerback Craig James to the practice squad.

Siemian has some experience as a starter, having filled in for an injured Sam Darnold in a game for the Jets in 2019. However, he suffered an ankle injury early in that game and missed the rest of the season. Siemian also played with the Bengals, Bears and Saints, starting games for each of those teams. He totaled 24 games as a starter for the Broncos in 2016 and 2017, showing more experience than Boyle. Despite this, the Jets are choosing to stick with the younger Boyle as their starting quarterback for now.
