The biggest question regarding the Jets heading into the offseason has now gone from “Will the Jets acquire a quarterback?” to “Which quarterback will the Jets acquire?”
The one most expect the Jets to make a huge push for is Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. But one former Jets wide receiver isn’t among that group that believes Rodgers should be the answer.
Via Brian Costello of the New York Post:
“Aaron Rodgers is the best thrower of the football our game has ever seen,” Marshall said at the site of the Super Bowl, where he is doing media work. “This is our opportunity to really get it right and be in position to be contending next year. So, you can go Aaron Rodgers and feel like you’ll get there, right? But what’s going to happen after next year? I feel like a Derek Carr, even a Jimmy [Garoppolo], with that defense, with Elijah Moore used the right way and then Garrett [Wilson], we’re set up for the next five to seven years.”
Marshall, who spent two seasons with the Jets including 2015 when he caught 109 passes for 1,502 yards and a career-high 14 touchdowns, believes Carr would be the best option for the Jets, followed by Garoppolo and then Rodgers.
Marshall believes Carr would be a better fit for the Jets in the locker room.
“It’s his age, but also the fit in the locker room,” Marshall told the New York Post. “Guys are definitely going to respect him, but I just feel like Derek Carr can get you there. Derek Carr is the first one in, last one out. Derek Carr, he meets people where they’re at. The chemistry and continuity is everything. Remember, we tried this before with Brett Favre. We did this, Woody. We did it. We tried this before with Brett Favre. Derek Carr, that’s all we need. We don’t need the best quarterback. We need the right quarterback.”
The Jets and owner Woody Johnson are hoping to find that right quarterback this offseason in what is an important season for the team as they hope to end what has become a 12-year postseason drought.
