With the blockbuster trade of Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets, it didn’t take long for jerseys to soar. In April, Rodgers’ jersey became the highest-selling one in the league, beating other big-time athletes in sales, such as Patrick Mahomes, Odell Beckham Jr., Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts, Travis Kelce, Justin Jefferson, Micah Parsons, and Bryce Young.
Aaron Rodgers’ Jets Jersey Tops Sales
Being a four-time MVP winner is a terrific accomplishment for an NFL player. Though Rodgers only has one Super Bowl win under his belt, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why he is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.
Being able to make spectacular plays is Rodgers’ specialty. Becoming king of the Hail Mary pass is one of his greatest accolades. Winning two games and tying one with the Hail Mary was exhilarating to witness. Don’t ever count Rodgers out in the fourth quarter, as he is one of the best comeback players.
His playmaking ability is unreal, as he is notorious for extending plays. When it looks like he is about to get sacked, Rodgers steps away from the pocket and finds a way to extend the play to get the first down. Nobody can extend plays better than Rodgers. That’s a major part of what makes him such a valuable quarterback.
Being one of the smartest minds in the game also sets him apart with his ability to adjust plays accordingly. Outsmarting defenses with the hard count and quickly recognizing and taking advantage of 12 men on the field has brought him success. Many defenses have fallen victim to Rodgers’ brilliant mind.
Excitement for Rodgers’ New Beginning with Jets
The Jets are excited to have the four-time MVP quarterback lead their team this season. Making the playoffs for the first time since 2010 may be attainable with him under center. Though the Jets may not have a loaded team like last year’s AFC East division winners, the Buffalo Bills, the acquisition of a once-in-a-lifetime veteran quarterback will make a huge difference.
Having a solid offense to work with will make things flow easier for Rodgers. Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, and Garrett Wilson will be the playmakers at wide receiver. Already establishing chemistry with Cobb and Lazard from Green Bay, Rodgers will have no problem relying on them to get the job done. Wilson will earn Rodgers’ trust as well with his outstanding playmaking ability.
What really stands out for the Jets is the offensive line. Some of Rodgers’ biggest struggles last season with Green Bay was due to the offensive line, as injuries and inexperience plagued them. This year, Rodgers will be more comfortable with a more experienced unit. The offensive line will determine Rodgers’ success, as well as the entire team’s.
This season will be the perfect opportunity for Rodgers to redeem himself from his previous mediocre outing. Despite the minor injury suffered during practice, Rodgers should be ready when the season starts. Sometimes, a change of environment is necessary.
