It’s become Aaron Rodgers or bust for the Jets this offseason as their safety net of Derek Carr is gone. Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the former Raiders quarterback will be joining the New Orleans Saints.

(Yes, Garafolo made the fix on a reply to this tweet, FYI.)

The Saints were the first team Carr met with and did so even before he was released by the Raiders. He later met with the Jets and then met with both teams a second time along with the Panthers in Indianapolis last week at the Scouting Combine.

This comes just after the Jets were reportedly the team Carr was leaning towards, but the Jets made it clear they were waiting on a decision from Rodgers, opening the door for another team to scoop him up, specifically the Saints, who had Carr as their No. 1 target while he was second-fiddle for the Jets.

The Jets now will be all in on Rodgers and if that blows up in their face, then they could be left scrambling. Jimmy Garoppolo has been linked to the Raiders lately and the Titans have seemed to make it clear they are not letting go of Ryan Tannehill.

Bottom line, the pursuit of Rodgers better work out for the Jets or they are in big trouble.
