New York Jets Qb Aaron Rodgers Receives Major Contract Criticism

The New York Jets were supposed to compete for the Super Bowl after trading for Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers last offseason.

Instead, Rodgers tore his Achilles on New York's first offensive series of the season, ruining their title hopes.

Brad Gagnon of Bleacher Report named Rodgers the Jets' most overpriced player.

In 2024 and 2025, Rodgers will count $68.7 million against the salary cap, according to Gagnon, despite his 2023 injury.

If Rodgers produces at the MVP level New York envisioned when it signed him, it won't matter.

After throwing for 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns, and four interceptions while completing 68.9% of his throws and establishing a league-high passer rating of 111.9, Rodgers, 40.

Rodgers led the NFL in passing touchdowns (48), completion percentage (70.7 percent), and quarterback rating (121.5) the year before.

Rodgers exhibited indications of decline in 2022, throwing 3,695 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions, the highest since his first season as a full-time starter in 2008.

Rodgers is hard to bet against. Remember that he looked to be declining in 2019, yet he had his best season the following year.
