Aaron Rodgers is finally a New York Jet, 40 days after announcing on the Pat McAfee Show that he was interested in being a Jet. Both teams and their front offices worked out their differences and traded picks and now here we are. The Jets are now immediate contenders in not just the AFC East but the NFL overall with a great veteran like Rodgers. His relationship with the New York media is what intrigues me as he always has some good sound bites. Below is my quick take on this from The Times Union:
The New York Jets will make the playoffs next season, but after that there are no guarantees. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the missing link, but he still needs to play at the highest level, and he will. Rodger's will play with a chip on his shoulder with plenty to prove. He wants a prove to the Green Bay Packers that they were wrong on showing him the door. And Rodgers knows there is no better place to win a Super Blow then New York. That would be the ultimate way to end his career. Too many good teams and elite quarterbacks in the AFC, but Rodger's and the Jets need to be included among the best teams.
