The buzz surrounding the New York Jets could not be higher right now. Matter of fact, it probably hasn't been this high in years. Why, you ask? Come on, you already know it's because Aaron Rodgers is in town.
Rodgers is a future Hall of Famer and he's without question one of the best quarterbacks of his generation. Now, he has put his time with the Packers in the rearview mirror, for now, as he's focused on balling out for the Jets.
On Wednesday, Rodgers reported to East Rutherford and the Gang Green supporters can't stop talking about his potential with the team. What will the stud signal-caller be able to get done in 2023 for the AFC East side?
Aaron Rodgers has huge expectations for the Jets this season
It has been a long time since Jets fans have been able to enjoy postseason football, as they haven't been to the playoffs since 2010. That's 13 years of suffering for this fanbase, but they're hoping that Rodgers can be the answer to their prayers.
Rodgers won back-to-back MVP awards in 2020 and 2021. While the 2022 campaign didn't go according to plan for him, no one can argue that he's still one of the best in the business.
Quarterback has been an issue for the Jets for far too long. Former first-round pick Zach Wilson was supposed to be the next-best thing for the organization, but he's been without question one of the biggest NFL Draft busts of the last 25 years.
Luckily for people in New York and New Jersey, they don't have to worry about Rodgers' level of play. He can still throw the ball all over the field and he's surely going to make a big difference for star wideout Garrett Wilson.
Wilson has all the potential in the world - he just needs someone like Rodgers to get him the ball for him to be at his best. With AR12 in town, the sky is the limit for this squad. Don't be surprised to see Rodgers help end the postseason drought this winter as well.
