FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Zach Wilson began his first training camp practice on a good note by heaving a pretty 40-yard pass to fellow rookie Elijah Moore for a big gain.

The New York Jets quarterback spent much of the rest of his day shaking off the rust in a mostly shaky performance Friday after signing his contract Thursday.

He was 5 of 10 in 11-on-11 sessions and was intercepted by Marcus Maye on a throw where the receiver was nowhere in the vicinity.

After Mike White and James Morgan split first-team snaps over the first two days, Wilson took them all Friday.
