Zach Wilson sends hilarious tweet about Jets re-signing Joe Flacco
Joe Flacco has agreed to remain with the New York Jets in a backup quarterback role, and Zach Wilson seems quite pleased about that. The former BYU star had an awesome way of showing it.
After the Jets announced that they have re-signed Flacco, Wilson sent a hilarious tweet welcoming the 37-year-old back. He called Flacco “dad” and referred to him as an “Elite QB.”
Always helps to have an Elite QB in the locker room.

Those who have followed Flacco’s career know that there was once a highly entertaining debate over whether Flacco should be considered “elite.” That question has since been answered (hint: he’s not), but the former Baltimore Ravens star does have a Super Bowl ring and Super Bowl MVP trophy. He may not be elite, but he has had a solid career.
Flacco was with the Jets in 2020 before he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as a backup to Jalen Hurts last season. He was then traded back to New York after Wilson went down with an injury. Obviously, he and Wilson established a close relationship during their brief time together.
