The New York Jets have something to celebrate this season, after all. At the NFL Honors Awards Show on Thursday, rookie wide receiver Garrett Wilson took home the 2022 Rookie of the Year Award.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker actually received one more first place vote (19 to 18) than Wilson, but Wilson claimed more second place votes (19-10) to make up the difference. 49ers QB Brock Purdy claimed six first place votes, Saints WR Chris Olave got five, and Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier and Ravens center Tyler Linderbaum each got one first place vote.

Wilson was the 10th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. He played in all 17 games for the Jets and had 83 receptions on 147 targets for 1,103 yards and four touchdowns. Wilson had a revolving door under center as he was catching passes from Zach Wilson, Mike White, Joe Flacco and Chris Streveler. He led New York in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Wilson finished with nearly double the amount of yards as the pass-catcher in second on the team.
