Jets' first-round pick Zach Wilson is signing his fully guaranteed, four-year contract projected to be worth $35.1 million, including a signing bonus of approximately $22.9 million.

To honor late assistant coach Greg Knapp, the Jets will wear a GK decal on their helmets during the season. Coach Robert Saleh called Knapp's death an "absolute tragedy." Knapp, 58, died five days after he was hit by a motorist while biking in Sam Ramon, Calf. (Photo: NY Jets.

Some real candor from Jets LB Jarrad Davis, who said he "contemplated walking away" from football during his time in Detroit. He wasn't blaming the Lions. He said he got so consumed with football that he "burned out," as he dealt with mental and emotional issues. He feels revitalized, in part, because of the Jets. He also said there's better balance in his life. Impressive young man.

WR Corey Davis was among some of the players who worked out with Zach Wilson in Florida before the start of camp. Those few days, he said, were helpful, especially with Wilson now missing camp time. Davis said the Florida workouts were "really good for us." Obviously, the Jets need Wilson and Davis on the field together ASAP so they can build chemistry.

Noteworthy injury update: DT Quinnen Williams, who was expected to be ready for the start of camp after having offseason foot surgery, could be sidelined another 2+ weeks. Robert Saleh said they hope to have him back the week of Aug. 16. Saleh said he's not concerned, saying they opted for a "slower approach" to prevent Williams from injuring his other foot. Williams, who fractured a foot at the start of the offseason, has started running.

Lance signs deal; Wilson last unsigned top pick

49ers quarterback Trey Lance signed his rookie contract on Wednesday, leaving the Jets' Zach Wilson as the lone unsigned 2021 first-round draft pick.

Watch out for C.J. Mosley this season. After two years without significant action, he seems highly motivated. He's also in great shape; his weight is down to 231, his college weight. Previously, he was listed at 250. "I think my speed should be 95+ on Madden," he cracked.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

LT Mekhi Becton wouldn't reveal his weight, but he told reporters that he reached his camp goal. He also said his injured foot, which kept him out of minicamp, is fine. Becton's personal expectations: "I'm gonna try to take it to another level. I was good last year. I'm gonna try to be great this year."

QB Zach Wilson remains unsigned as the Jets open training camp today. Tomorrow is the first practice. The amount of Wilson's contract is slotted ($35.15M over four years), but they're believed to be squabbling over offset language. QB Trevor Lawrence has no offsets and QB Justin Fields has no offsets for the bulk of his money; the Jets always do deals with offsets. That's the likely holdup. Wilson is the presumptive starter, so they need to get him into camp ASAP.
