It’s really weird to see Aaron Rodgers in New York Jets green

There are some players in the NFL who play their entire career with one franchise. That franchise and said player will always be connected.

Then there are those players who might play the vast majority of their careers with one franchise, only to leave and play elsewhere before they call it a career.

Depending on the success, or lack thereof, in their new home will likely depend on the overall perception of their career will be.

Will they be remembered for their greatness in their former home? Or will they be forgotten for sticking around a few years too long?

For Aaron Rodgers, he is hoping to cement his legacy in the NFL, and like the quarterback in Green Bay he replaced, Brett Favre, his next phase of his NFL career will be with the New York Jets.

After playing his entire career with the Green Bay Packers, Rodgers was traded to the Jets this offseason, and it still looks weird to not see him in Packers colors. Nonetheless, his new teammates seem to be embracing for former NFL MVP and Super Bowl Champion with open arms.

As for Rodgers’ on-field play, he joins a very stellar cast of weapons, and is already starting to gel throughout training camp practices. Here is one of those patented throws from Rodgers to new teammate Garrett Wilson at camp.

Accuracy? Yeah, Rodgers still has it.

Rodgers joins a loaded AFC where he will have to compete with other top tier quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert and Lamar Jackson, just to name a few. Will he be able to elevate his game and lift the Jets back to the playoffs at the same time?

That has yet to be seen, but I think we can all agree it looks really weird to see Rodgers in a Jets uniform…at least for now.
