New York Jets owner Woody Johnson thinks Aaron Rodgers' arrival means the Jets now have all the pieces to contend for the Super Bowl. Last year, the Jets looked like a very complete team but their quarterbacks just weren't doing good enough of a job.

After the 2022 season ended, the Jets brass was keen on adding a proven veteran quarterback. When former NFL MVP Rodgers became available, the Jets went really hard after the star quarterback. Rodgers was traded to the Jets this week and Gang Green feels they are now a legitimate Super bowl contender.

Jets owner Johnson on the Rodgers addition

"We've created a team that Joe and Robert have put together, a culture. Last year we were just missing one part, it was obvious to everybody. Now we've got a defense that is special and now a quarterback.

I think it says a lot about the culture and opportunity we've created. He's a very smart guy and he made a good decision based on what we've done and what we've put together. He's already memorized [the names of] all the players.

He'll work with his skill players, with their coaches, and he has a good relationship with Hackett. He loves the defense. It's all going to be good. It's going to be great," Johnson told Jets team reporter Caroline Hendershot, per the Jets website.

Jets general manager Joe Douglas joined owner Johnson is openly expressing excitement over the Rodgers addition. "A Hall of Fame quarterback, it's surreal. There were a lot of conversations. A lot of travel. But ultimately, we got it done.

Aaron is an unbelievable player who sets a high standard for himself and his teammates. It's great to have him around the first-, second-, third-year players and help them grow. I think he will energize everyone," Douglas said.

The Jets haven't won a Super Bowl since 1969 and now the expectation is on Rodgers to lead the team to the Promised Land.
