Aaron Rodgers says his time with the New York Jets has been going better than he expected. Rodgers, 39, spent 18 seasons with the Green Bay Packers before coming to the Jets this offseason. Before landing Rodgers, the Jets had several talented young players on the roster.
After adding Rodgers, the Jets also signed several proven veteran players. This coming season, the Jets are aiming for the Super Bowl. "I thought it was going to be a good ball club, but it's really been better than I could have expected.
It feels like sometimes I woke up inside of a dream and this is my life playing out. I pinch myself at various times throughout my week every single week since I've been here," Rodgers said during an appearance on Boomer and Gio, via CBS Sports.
Rodgers not taking any shots at the Packers
After two tumultuous offseasons, the Packers decided they were not going to bring back Rodgers for 2023 and they explored the trade market for the star quarterback. Rodgers, who at the time didn't even know if he was going to retire or continue his career, eventually decided to continue playing.
After saying his time with the Jets has been great, Rodgers proceeded to say that he wasn't taking any subtle shots at the Packers. "I have a lot of love and gratitude for that time, but that chapter is over. This has been better than I was even daydreaming about sitting in that hole in the ground thinking about what my life could be.
I contemplated retirement. I contemplated coming back. The Jets were always the team that was the most interesting to me because of Robert (Saleh) because of Nathaniel (Hackett), because of the way they whooped our ass last year," Rodgers said. The Jets haven't won a Super Bowl since 1969 and they are hoping Rodgers can lead them to the Promised Land in 2023.
