Tom Brady backs Aaron Rodgers to have success with Jets

Tom Brady believes Aaron Rodgers is "going to do a great job" with the New York Jets. This offseason, the Jets got their ultimate wish fulfilled when they landed Rodgers to be their quarterback in 2023. Rodgers, who came to the NFL in 2005, played only for the Green Bay Packers in his 18 seasons in the league.

In 2020, Brady left the New England Patriots after 20 years and won the Super Bowl with the Buccaneers in his first season in Tampa Bay. Now, Brady is tipping Rodgers to do well in his stint with the Jets.

Brady on Rodgers: He's gonna do a great job

“He’s one of the great quarterbacks to ever play the game.

I think he’s gonna do a great job. It’s a tough division they’re playing in. They’ve got the Patriots, they’ve got the Dolphins, they’ve got the Bills, who have been great. It’s always tough to bet against Aaron Rodgers, too, because of how prolific he is as both a passer and he’s a Super Bowl champion, so it’s gonna be a great division to watch," Brady told Sports Illustrated's Robin Lundberg.

The Jets entered this offseason believing they were only a good quarterback removed from contending for the Super Bowl. Now that they have Rodgers, the Jets feel they are among the Super Bowl candidates. "My opinion, I think 32 teams -- 32 coaches -- stand in front of their teams every year and talk about winning a championship, and then realistically, there's maybe six or eight teams that have an actual chance to do it.

And I do think we are one of those teams. But none of it matters unless we take care of (business) today," Jets head coach Robert Saleh said a week ago. It remains to be seen if Rodgers can lead the Jets to their first Super Bowl win since 1969.
