The New York Jets have hope heading into the 2023 NFL Season, largely due to the recent arrival of Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers was traded from the Green Bay Packers in hopes of bringing the Jets their first playoff berth since 2010.
Many have wondered if Rodgers would establish connections with his teammates, and how the Jets’ offense would operate.
Zack Rosenblatt, a Jets reporter, has recently shared his notes on Rodgers from training camp.
#Jets training camp is over. I've been tracking every Aaron Rodgers throw in 11-on-11 during practice, including who he throws to, for this: Here's my unofficial final tally for all of camp.
Rodgers completed 170 of 268 passes (63.4%) with 18 TD and 4 INT.

According to Rosenblatt, Rodgers completed 63.4% of passes throughout training camp, throwing 18 touchdowns and four interceptions.
He highlighted the various players Rodgers targeted, with Garrett Wilson, Allen Lazard, and Michael Carter leading the way.
Rosenblatt provided a special caveat to Wilson, as he led the team in targets even though he was absent for two weeks.
Wilson won the Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2022 with an unstable quarterback situation.
With Rodgers as his quarterback, there’s no telling what his ceiling might be in year two.
Seeing Lazard as one of his top targets shouldn’t come as much of a shock, given the connection between him and Rodgers in Green Bay.
Carter’s positioning as the third-highest target-getter is surprising, given he is a running back.
In his previous two seasons with the Jets, Carter has totaled 77 receptions, which he’s turned into 613 yards but no touchdowns.
The Jets’ offense could be high-flying in 2023 if these training camp numbers are an indication of what’s to come.
Rosenblatt seems to believe these numbers could directly translate to the regular season.
