“QB2QB” replaces Jon Gruden’s “QB Camp” series, which ran for eight years before Gruden returned to the NFL as the head coach of the Raiders this offseason. Wilson was a member of the 2012 “QB Camp” class and now plans to pass on some of Gruden’s valuable advice.

“Jon Gruden’s ‘QB Camp’ was one of my favorite experiences of the NFL Draft process because it helped prepare me for some of the physical and mental demands of playing in the NFL,” Wilson said via the ESPN press release. “Now, I’m excited to have the opportunity to meet Baker, Saquon, Mason and J.T. to try to help them get ready for the next level as part of ESPN’s ‘QB2QB.’

“At the same time, I look forward to feeding off their energy and excitement as I prepare myself for the new experiences that await me this season.”

“QB2QB” content will be available across various ESPN platforms and on Wilson’s TraceMe mobile app.
