Jets Have High Expectations

The New York Jets entered "win now" mentality when they finalized a deal for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is 39 years old.
Last season, Gang Green welcomed promising offensive newcomers Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall while boasting the fourth-ranked defense in the NFL.
The Jets' 2022 season went from looking bright to collapsing, primarily because of injuries and a poor quarterback performance. A six-game losing skid at the close of the season caused Robert Saleh's squad to finish fourth in the AFC East.
The Green & White hopes to increase both their offensive output and victory total by bringing in a four-time NFL MVP to handle the snaps now that all of their key players are back.
The Jets' main issue is their lack of time.
First off, despite being at the end of a legendary career, Rodgers is still an above-average talent. No of how many years he's prepared to commit to the Jets, one must consider how long he can continue to produce at a high level.
It won't be simple for the Jets to hold onto every defensive player as the years go by in the current wage cap era. They already need to figure out how to permanently sign All-Pro defensive lineman Quinnen Williams. When will Sauce Gardner be qualified for a new contract?
Similar difficulties faced the AFC East rival Buffalo Bills this summer, who allowed former first-round linebacker Tremaine Edmunds to join with the Chicago Bears.
The New York media will just increase the pressure to succeed in 2023 since it will be difficult to keep this specific Jets squad together.
