Zach Wilson was all smiles on vacation with his model girlfriend, Nicolette Dellanno, over the long weekend.

The 24-year-old, who was traded to the Broncos last month following a disastrous tenure with the Jets, was seen posing with the blonde beauty on a boat.

The pair, who were first linked in 2022, spent Memorial Day in Utah on Lake Powell with their pals following the quarterback's move out west to Colorado.

'weekend away,' the New Jersey-born model captioned an Instagram post Monday, which showed her rocking a black bikini and dark shades.

Wilson, for his part, cut a casual figure in a light blue tee, bright swimming trunks and a backwards cap.

The former No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft is up against veteran Jarrett Stidham and rookie Bo Nix - the No. 12 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft - to become Denver's starting quarterback.

He recently reflected on his move from the Jets to the Broncos after a difficult three years in New York.

'Obviously, there's bittersweet moments in everything,' he told reporters earlier this week. 

'I miss the guys out there and everything too. But at the same time a fresh start is good. I'm excited to attack a new challenge,' he added.

'It's been three years of tough challenges. But in the end that's what makes you stronger and you just need somebody to believe in you and believe in yourself.'

Wilson went 12-21 as the Jets' starter and was deemed expendable with Aaron Rodgers returning from a torn Achilles tendon suffered in last season's opener.

The Brigham Young alum emphasized that he's eager to play in Sean Payton's system, which he feels will bring out the best in him.

'They're all in a race to learn this system,' the head coach said of his three quarterbacks.

'Man, they're doing well ... they've all come from somewhere, but they're doing well. It's a good room.' 

The Broncos have rolled through 13 starting quarterbacks since Peyton Manning retired after Denver won Super Bowl 50 in 2016.
