It’s officially the dawn of a new era for the New York Jets.
Aaron Rodgers is now a part of the team, and they’re aiming for the Vince Lombardi trophy while settling for nothing less.
The MVP-winning quarterback arrived at the Jets facility on Wednesday, where he was greeted with smiles and cheers from members of the front office and team:

The fans in New York are more hopeful than ever, and they couldn’t contain their excitement upon watching him arrive at the team’s facility.
The dap with Saleh might be the cleanest of all time

What a Packer’s fan is feeling watching this must be similar to how I felt seeing Stafford in a limo blasting California Love on his arrival in LA. Don’t worry 🧀. It get’s better.

Hope he is the missing piece for the Jets fans who have endured more than most and for Saleh who ive always liked.

Rodgers is one of the greatest passers the NFL has ever seen, and while his tenure with the Green Bay Packers could’ve been more successful from a team standpoint, maybe all he needed was a change of scenery.
It’s been a long time since the Jets were in this kind of position, and even though the AFC East division is extremely competitive, they should still be considered one of the teams to beat right now.
Robert Saleh has put together an elite defense, not to mention an impressive set of young playmakers on the offensive side of the field.
The Jets flirted with playoff contention every time Zach Wilson wasn’t on the field, and even backup QB Mike White was able to lead them to success.
New York needed a slight improvement at QB to become a legitimate threat, so just imagine the potential after adding a future first-ballot Hall of Famer to the position.
Then again, as usually happens with legends playing somewhere else, Rodgers will have to prove himself all over again.
After all, nothing he’s accomplished thus far should mean anything to New York fans unless he also delivers for the J-E-T-S.NEXT: Troy Aikman Reveals His Thoughts On The Aaron Rodgers Trade
