The New York Jets have a different look to their team this season.
Amongst the many moves they made, the one that shook up the league was trading for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
For the first time in almost two decades, Rodgers will take the field for a new team.
He played in his first game with the Jets in their third preseason game.
Many people are still getting used to seeing Rodgers in a new uniform.
Rodgers got into a scuffle with New York Giants defensive lineman Jihad Ward during that game.
He did not like how Ward shoved him after the play.
Ward then ended up saying that he did not know who Rodgers was.
The full video was posted by the NFL on Twitter.

This was rare footage of Rodgers getting into it with another player, which we have not seen often.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill even poked fun at the situation.
I’m with Jihad Ward who is number 8 for the jets 😭

Even though Rodgers changed his team and number, every NFL player knows who he is.
He is still a legend of the game, and this trash-talk tactic by Ward was simply to get under Rodgers’ skin.
It will be a lot of fun to watch Rodgers and the Jets this year.
They are one of the most exciting teams in football and Rodgers has seemingly found new life in New York.
But, things will get serious for the Jets in Week 1 of the regular season.
They play on Monday Night Football against the Buffalo Bills.
That will be a great litmus test for how good the Jets will be this season.NEXT: Quinnen Williams Makes Heartfelt Admission On What Fuels Him
