Although Suh’s critique holds weight, it’s also important to acknowledge Rodgers’ impressive track record of accomplishments. If he were to transfer to the Jets, his exceptional talent would make him their most skilled quarterback in years and could potentially inspire his teammates to elevate their performance.

A quarterback’s performance is a critical part of a team’s triumph in the NFL. Assuming Rodgers remains fit and maintains his typical level of play, the Jets would undoubtedly improve from their previous season. However, it’s uncertain if this alone would elevate them to contender status. Nonetheless, Rodgers’ presence would undeniably have a substantial effect on the team’s overall success.
