The NFL will return to London this season with two games, as the Atlanta Falcons will host the New York Jets on Oct. 10 and the Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 17.

The Jets are heading back to London. They play a "road" game against the Falcons on Oct. 10. It will be played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. FWIW: The Jets are 1-0 in London. They defeated the Dolphins in 2015 at Wembley Stadium.

Showing a flair for drama, the NFL has scheduled the Jets against former QB Sam Darnold in Week 1: Jets at Panthers, Sept. 12, 1 p.m. Hey, why not? For Darnold, who was stung by the trade, it's a revenge game. For the Jets, it's the start of a new era with coach Robert Saleh and rookie QB Zach Wilson. It's only one game — it would be silly to draw a conclusion on the QB Decision — but this is what you call an "optic game."

No freebie: Wilson says Jets job must be 'earned'

Despite the lack of veteran quarterbacks on the Jets' roster, rookie Zach Wilson doesn't expect to be handed the starting job. "That position has to be earned," the No. 2 pick said Saturday on the second day of rookie minicamp.

Robert Saleh said the front office is "working relentlessly" to lock up S Marcus Maye with a long-term extension. "Hopefully, that happens soon," Saleh said. He believes players have "earned the right to ask for whatever they can, especially when they do things the right way like (Maye) has." Sounds like Saleh envisions a Maye-LaMarcus Joyner tandem. He said Joyner is a post safety who can play the Jimmie Ward role from his SF defense. They also have 2020 pick Ashtyn Davis.

Zach Wilson reached out to fellow rookies during the run-up to minicamp with get-acquainted texts and calls. That impressed them. WR Elijah Moore said, "He's like a general ... His passion comes out through the phone." Moore and Wilson watched each other's highlights. Said Moore: "I'm ready to watch him look pretty throwing me balls."

Zach Wilson's first day was uneventful. During the one-hour portion that was open to the media, he worked with the offensive coaches, mainly on footwork on dropbacks. The media didn't have access to 7-on-7. Robert Saleh said he wasn't trying to hide anything, but that he wanted the rookies to start out in a low-pressure environment.

To recap a busy day of transactions: The Jets signed six of their 10 draft picks, all fifth- and sixth-rounders — S Jamien Sherwood, CB Michael Carter II, CB Jason Pinnock, LB Hamsah Nasirildeen, CB Brandin Echols and DT Jonathan Marshall. They released six, including former first-round WR Josh Doctson and K Chase McLaughlin. S Saquan Hampton was placed on PUP.

QB Zach Wilson will make his on-field debut today at the start of a three-day rookie minicamp. About 30 rookies will be present, including the 10 draft picks. Because of COVID-19 protocols, the team will split — linemen in the morning, skill players at 12:30. Wilson will have 7-on-7 against air, along with positional and individual drills. There won't be the traditional 11-on-11 periods. This is a basic introduction to the NFL.
