The New York Jets have a ton of areas of weakness heading into the 2024 offseason, but one of their more under-appreciated needs coming up is a backup quarterback.

Jets owner Woody Johnson said as much during the NFL Honors.

“[We] need a backup quarterback,” Johnson said, per ESPN. “We didn’t have one last year.”
