The New York Jets quickly went from a laughingstock to an actual threat.
The team put years of struggles behind them last season, rounding up a nearly-perfect offseason by almost making it to the playoffs.
The Jets have put together an impressive core of young talent, even becoming an appealing destination for a superstar quarterback like Aaron Rodgers.
That’s why it’s not much of a surprise to see team owner Woody Johnson being quite satisfied with the job GM Joe Douglas and HC Robert Saleh have done in charge of the team.

The future seems bright for the Jets.
They have yet to reach an agreement with the Green Bay Packers about a Rodgers trade, but it seems like a matter of time before the multi-time MVP arrives at MetLife Stadium.
Both teams have reportedly hit an impasse on the proposed compensation, but Johnson is optimistic about his team’s ability to eventually get the deal done.
Johnson teamed up with new offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, Douglas, and Saleh to reach out to Rodgers and convince him to request a trade to the team, which he did a couple of weeks ago.
However, the Jets have reportedly been reluctant to include a first-round pick in the negotiations, which the Packers claim could be a deal-breaker.
Even so, it’s hard to envision any scenario where Rodgers is their starting quarterback come Week 1.
They’ve already committed to Jordan Love, and the four-time MVP openly expressed his desire to take his talents somewhere else.
Whatever the case, the fact that the Jets have put themselves in a position to land a player like him speaks volumes of the outstanding job the front office has done lately.NEXT: NFL Analyst Roasts Jets Owner Over 'Win Business' Claim
