Having spent 18 seasons with the Green Bay Packers, 15 of which he spent as the team’s starting quarterback, Rodgers has now landed on the New York Jets to begin a new phase of his career. With the four-time MVP at the helm, the Packers have an overall record of 150-79-1.

Although the trade took much longer than anticipated, the Jets were interested in the veteran quarterback and Aaron himself expressed a desire to join the New York community on Pat McAfee shows. The quarterback’s fan was greatly relieved as the trade ended in success since he had previously expressed an interest in retiring but had changed his mind after experiencing the “Darkness Retreat.”

A video of Aaron throwing a pass in gear and wearing the Jets’ uniform was posted by the team on Twitter early on 2nd May. Just take a look at the former Packers’ eyes. With Hackett and Robert Saleh watching in the distance, it exudes unwavering resolve. After the video went viral, the fans are waiting eagerly to see the veteran QB wearing the no. 8 jersey.

The Jets were previously concerned about the 39-year-old’s age and the possibility of his retirement; however, he stated in his opening news conference that he is fully determined to give his best to his new team.
“I’m an old guy, so I want to be part of a team that can win it all, and I believe that this is a place where we get that done,” he said.

Being a Super Bowl champion, 10-time Pro Bowler, four-time First-Team All-Pro, and once Second-Team All-Pro, the quarterback left his mark on Green Bay history. With 4.52 touchdown passes for every interception, one of the NFL’s all-time great quarterbacks holds the record for the best ratio in league history.

He did not, however, have a great season in 2022 with the Packers and was ultimately benched as a result of his thumb injury late in the season.

After displaying extreme resolve during the news conference and on the first day of practice, the Jets fans can dream that one day Rodgers will lead the team to the Super Bowl, as Tom Brady did with the Buccaneers.
