Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers finally made it known to the world that it is time for him to move on. During an interaction at the ‘Pat McAfee show’, Rodgers opened up about how his intention is to play for the New York Jets in the upcoming season. The Jets have been holding talks with the Packers for a possible trade for the four-time NFL MVP. But there are hurdles in this trade deal to pull through as the Packers decide the best returns if they decide to do away with their legendary QB. But even if the deal pulls through, there is another difficulty the 39-year-old veteran QB will face at the Jets.

As the talk about A-Rod’s trade picks up heat, an old clip of Jet’s QB Zach Wilson goes viral on the internet.

During an interview in January, reporters asked Zach Wilson for his opinion about a veteran being signed by the Jets during the offseason. Wilson did not seem too thrilled at the idea of a veteran replacing him on the field. He said, “I’m going to make that dude’s life hell in practice”. Wilson looked to fight for his spot in the team as a QB as he said that he will train harder to prove his worth to the coaches and to the team.


Now, with the possibility of Aaron Rodgers being traded to the Jets, it seems like the veteran QB might have his work cut out for himself there. While Wilson may put pressure on Aaron Rodgers for the starter spot at the Jets, the veteran QB might prove to be an excellent guide for the 23-year-old Wilson, who still remains the long-term QB hope for the Jets.

Wilson had a tough last season with the Jets on the field. They removed the young QB from the roster multiple times. This was because of his performance for the Jets on the field. This broke his confidence and mentality last season. Wilson went  5-4 in nine starts out of a possible 17 for the Jets last season. The Jets benched him for the entire season after they lost two straight games with him as their QB1 while contending for a playoff spot.

Wilson is still young, and he can learn a lot from a veteran joining the team. Aaron Rodgers has a lot of experience in the field he can share to help the young Wilson grow. While the fight for the starting spot in the roster will be a positive one, it is undeniable that A-Rod will be an excellent mentor for Wilson to improve his game over the years, and maybe one day be a legend like Aaron Rodgers.
