“Just the fact that he knows what to expect come August, come September, you don’t have to talk about that as much,” LaFleur said. “You just try to dial in on what matters right now and that’s making sure we are mastering our offense and our job as a quarterback. That’s where I say his mindset and focus has been very cool to watch, very different from last year.”

Wilson recently completed his first season in the NFL.
The quarterback struggled to start the 2021 campaign and suffered a knee injury that caused him to miss a month midway through the season.
After bouncing back from the injury, Wilson saw his play improve down the final stretch of New York’s schedule.
