According to multiple reports, the Jets are trading for Flacco, who signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason after spending last season in New York. Flacco had yet to appear in a game for the Eagles.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jets will send a conditional sixth-round pick to Philly in exchange for Flacco. The pick could eventually turn into a fifth-round selection.

The Jets lost Wilson to a sprained PCL in yesterday’s 54-13 loss to the New England Patriots. Mike White replaced Wilson and wound up completing 20-of-32 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown.
Wilson is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks.
Last year, Flacco appeared in five games (four starts) for the Jets when Sam Darnold was out with an injury. He completed 55.2% of his passes for 864 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions.
