The Aaron Rodgers injury has shocked the world. The legendary quarterback was in everyone’s eyes, everyone came to see him as he played his first match for the Jets.
Fans saw him in a different Jersey after 18 seasons and the New York Jets had all hopes of a Super Bowl win.
But an injury dashed all the hopes of the fans. Fans were deeply saddened when he was carted off the field.
It has been confirmed that Aaron Rodgers is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles so the Jets will now be in the market for a quarterback.
Also, many analysts and experts are suggesting quarterback names to the Jets. “I’m calling Tom Brady. Seriously,” Sharpe said.
Meanwhile, reports say that quarterback Colin Kaepernick is trying to reach and has an interest in joining the Jets for the rest of the 2023 season.

Kaepernick himself revealed in June that he still wants to play quarterback in the NFL.
“I’m going to keep pushing,” Kaepernick told Gilbert Manzano of Sports Illustrated. “I’m going to keep fighting for it because I know I can step on the field and play. Every workout, every opportunity I’ve had to show that, the feedback has always been positive. Everything from, ‘He’s still an elite player,’ to ‘The workout was great; it was better than expected.’
“When I had my workout with the Raiders last year, even training with guys, there’s a decent amount of people who may have forgotten what I was capable of doing on the field, so any chance to be able to remind people of what I can do out there, I look forward to and embrace, and I look forward to the day that I get to step on the field and show people what I can do.”
