Quinnen Williams joked about Aaron Rodgers’ experience in the NFL

The average career length for an NFL player is only 3.3 years. Yet, New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers is about to embark on his 20th season in the league. To some players, like teammate Quinnen Williams, that stat is almost impossible to believe.

Speaking to reporters after OTAs on Wednesday, Williams had a hilarious reaction to Rodgers entering year 20 in the NFL.

“20 years?” Williams abruptly questioned. “I ain’t know that. Aaron [has] 20 years in the NFL. Man, isn’t our running back, number zero, [isn’t he] 20 years old? So he’s been in the NFL as long as he’s been alive. That’s crazy. I got to joke with him about that.”

Williams is referring to the Jets’ rookie fourth-round pick, Braelon Allen, who just turned 20 this past January. The Wisconsin product was born on January 20, 2004. Just over a year later, Rodgers was drafted by the Packers in April 2005.

For players like Williams, it’s hard to believe that another athlete could play at such a high level for 20 years. It’s one of the reasons players like Jets tackle Morgan Moses still consider the 40-year-old to be one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. It’s also why plenty of analysts and former players believe that the Jets are in consideration for a deep playoff run heading into the 2024 season.

Rodgers has been a full participant at OTAs, but the 40-year-old still faces an uphill climb as he recovers from his Achilles injury. Rodgers recently said he feels “90% himself.”

Even something as simple as getting his foot worked on during OTAs can give Jets fans PTSD after how last season unfolded. That is, until they see him sling a football. Even at 40 years old, Rodgers is still providing moments that leave his teammates and fans short of breath.

It remains to be seen if Rodgers will be able to help the Jets end their playoff drought. For now, he gives fans and teammates hope.
