It’s been a few days since Aaron Rodgers’ season-ending injury occurred, but it’s still all anyone is talking about in the NFL. I feel really bad for both Rodgers and the Jets. Rodgers may not be the NFL’s most well-liked quarterback, but there’s also some natural hate that comes with being on top, so Rodgers has had to deal with that his whole career. I don’t blame him for having a chip on his shoulder, if he does. Also, the Jets thought they finally had their perfect fit for a quarterback in Rodgers. There was so much excitement around him coming to the Jets. Then, within the first five minutes of Rodgers’ first game with the Jets, he got injured. So, his season is over. You can’t make this stuff up, kids. So, who could replace Aaron Rodgers with the New York Jets?
A lot of different names are being brought up in regards to the Jets’ new quarterback. According to The Athletic’s Dianna Russini and CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson, the team is not interested in bringing on two of the rumored players to join the Jets: Tom Brady and Colin Kaepernick. Moreover, Jordan Schultz has also stated that Kaepernick’s agent actually reached out to the Jets. But, they’re saying it’s a no for Brady and Kaepernick. Even so, I’m including Brady on this list, because there is still a lot of speculation around him surprising people and possibly stepping in for Rodgers.
I hope that whoever the Jets brings on does well for the team, because they deserve to have a good run. I also hope Rodgers heals up completely. It would be a shame for that play on Monday to be his final play of his career. Read on for five quarterbacks who could replace Aaron Rodgers with the New York Jets.
