Jets QB Aaron Rodgers arrives in Florham Park

The New York Jets began their voluntary offseason program on Monday, April 15, 2024, along with 25 other NFL teams. With that, there’s one man whose presence is highly anticipated—courtesy of how the 2023 unfolded.

That man’s name is Aaron Rodgers, and he arrived at the Atlantic Health Training Facility in Florham Park, NJ, in style, per the Jets’ official X account (formerly Twitter).

Much was made about Rodgers’ lack of participation in many of the Green Bay Packers’ offseason programs in his later years. Rodgers soundly crushed that narrative by appearing on day No. 1 for two straight years with the Jets.

How much working out Rodgers will actually do remains to be seen.

The 40-year-old passer is still recovering from the torn Achilles he suffered four snaps into the season on Sept. 11, 2023. Though he pushed his recovery to the limit in a bid to return for a postseason run, Rodgers likely slowed his rehab down to a more standard pace—with an eye on the 2024 campaign.

Rodgers recently told the “I Can Fly Podcast” that he thought his career was over immediately following the injury. He used Kobe Bryant’s rehab from a similar injury as motivation to keep his spirits up.

The Jets have done much this offseason to fill their key roster holes while simultaneously helping Rodgers chase another Super Bowl ring. They brought in Tyron Smith and Morgan Moses to bookend the offensive line, and they also signed wide receiver Mike Williams to give Rodgers a classic high-point threat.

As Aaron Rodgers said in his introductory press conference with the New York Jets, the franchise’s Super Bowl 3 Lombardi Trophy looks lonely in its case. He’s already back with the team to try to help them add another.
