Derek Carr seemed to have a productive meeting with the New York Jets

We all know that Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jets have been linked since the start of the offseason. The other quarterback heavily connected to the team has been Derek Carr. Over the weekend, Carr was seen dining with Jets head coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett in New Jersey, part of a weekend visit.

It could just be due diligence between the two sides, but per ESPN’S Jeff Darlington, the meeting was “very positive”. Speaking on ESPN’s Get Up, Darlington said the Jets feel like Carr is a “great player” and they believe he can lead the team to a championship.

“I was told that it was a very positive meeting,” Darlington said. “The Jets really believe that Derek Carr is the type of quarterback that can lead them to a potential championship. They also believe that the meeting went really well.”

While that sounds good, Darlington reiterated the team’s interest in Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The problem is, not only is Aaron Rodgers yet to tell the Packers if he intends on playing for them in 2023, but the Packers themselves haven’t openly admitted they are looking into trading the future Hall of Fame quarterback. Rodgers could also decide to retire. His future remains unknown.

For the Jets, time is of the essence. The team could wait for Rodgers’ decision and risk losing Carr. Or, the team could forego Rodgers and go all-in on Carr. Either decision is risky.

For Jets fans, they can only hope that Joe Douglas and the team make the right decision.

Please forget the name Aaron Rodgers. He’s 39 and looked disinterested in the half dozen or so games I watched later year.
Now you’re going to okay games with Carr to dream about a once great QB who is not a free agent (most likely cost a 1st round pick) doesn’t even know if he wants to play next year until he meditates in darkness for 4 days.

I’ll finish tge Rodgers portion with his current team wants nothing to do with him anymore….Woodys fingerprints all over this.
Carr is the move. make if happen.
If they pass on Carr to give up a 1st rounder to pay Rodgers $100m over 2 years that would be the one thing to get me to order the NFL ticket and become a casual fan because it would be my final straw from the org and I’ll be done with them.
If I’m wrong I’ll comment back to take my medicine, but no longer as a fan…this is too simple.

“A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.” If Carr is willing to sign, you sign him. Waiting to see what flaky ARod wants to do is stupid.
