By joining the Jets, Rodgers, 39, will play for another team not named the Packers for the first time in his professional career. The move also ends New York’s offseason search for a veteran quarterback. The Jets finished the 2022 season with a 7-10 record. New York missed the postseason for the 12th consecutive season. The last time the Jets reached the playoffs was in 2010 when they made it to the AFC Championship.
