Perhaps Aaron Rodgers is not human

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—Strangely, the idea of Aaron Rodgers‘s competitiveness always seems to fall by the wayside.

Whether it’s the immunization discussion, the rumors regarding family squabbles, or his views on niche topics, the New York Jets quarterback makes headlines in a way that throws his maniacal competitiveness under the obvious air we all breathe.

Perhaps that’s all changing before our very eyes.

Just 34 days after rupturing his Achilles tendon against the Buffalo Bills, Rodgers was spotted tossing a football around on the MetLife Stadium field.

Rodgers, 39, was later spotted by Jets X-Factor getting in some mini-calf raises on the sideline.

Rodgers is back with the team after spending the better part of the last month in California, after getting surgery on his Achilles. He’s obviously in the house as Zach Wilson and the 2-3 Jets prepare to take on the 5-0 Philadelphia Eagles.

The Jets starting quarterback has repeatedly expressed his desire to defy the odds by returning to the field at some point this season—although the usual timetable for an Achilles rupture should easily take a full football season to rehab.

Whether or not he accomplishes that goal remains to be seen, but if Zach Wilson’s Jets can keep things afloat for a long enough time, it’ll provide that much more incentive for No. 8 to eye and fulfill a historic comeback.

Knocking off a tough Eagles team in Week 6 would go a long way in the near-impossible mission on Aaron Rodgers’s mind.
