The Jets have made it clear, from head coach Robert Saleh to owner Woody Johnson, that they plan on bringing in a veteran quarterback and hope to let Zach Wilson develop next season. Rodgers is the big fish in the pond. The Jets would owe Rodgers over $100 million over the next two seasons — unless the teams come to an agreement where the Packers take on some of the salary — if they do happen to acquire him as well as send draft compensation, which would likely start at the very least with the No. 13 pick in this year’s draft.
The Jets have begun their process for a veteran quarterback. Will they be successful? It’ll be one of the storylines of the entire offseason in the NFL and will be interesting to watch unfold.
