The New York Jets were selected for this year’s ‘Hard Knocks,’ a documentary from HBO.
This will dive deep into their organization, showing the day-to-day preseason planning and strategy.
The first episode launched on August 8th, and there have already been several sound bytes circulating the internet.
One such clip is between Aaron Rodgers and Sauce Gardner.
Rodgers has been quickly accepted on this team and has developed a great rapport with Gardner.
In this clip, Rodgers tells Gardner, “You’ll be here one day,” indicating he believes Gardner will make the Hall of Fame.

Gardner had a fantastic rookie campaign in 2022 that was capped with a Rookie of the Year award.
Many already consider him to be one of the league’s best cornerbacks, even after one season.
Rodgers has played in the NFL for almost 20 seasons, and he’s seen a lot of cornerbacks throughout his time.
If his comments to Gardner are genuine, it could be a sign of things to come for him, assuming he continues to play at this pace.
While Gardner may be headed to the Hall of Fame when his career is over, the Jets still have a lot of work to do.
Will Rodgers’ presence be enough to give the offense the jolt that it desperately needs?
And, will Gardner’s dominance continue, helping the Jets’ secondary remain as one of the league’s top units?
‘Hard Knocks’ will continue to reveal their quest to do just that.NEXT: Analyst Is Upset By Aaron Rodgers' Position On Top-10 QB List
