Recently, the New York Jets were finally able to part ways with former No. 2 overall draft pick Zach Wilson, with the storied NFL franchise trading the struggling backup quarterback to the Denver Broncos.

This was an interesting and unexpected move by the Broncos, who drafted Bo Nix out of the University of Oregon in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

However, this was a long-awaited move for the Jets, who were desperate to move Wilson, especially after he was unable to take the load for injured superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers during the 2023 season.

Interestingly enough, now that the Jets have traded Wilson, they have a total of five quarterbacks on the roster, according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini.

With Rodgers dealing with a serious Achilles injury, which he suffered in the first series of the Week 1 showdown with the division rival Buffalo Bills last season, the Jets appeared to want to have a full quarterback room, at least for now.

Veteran Tyrod Taylor will be Rodgers’ primary backup during the upcoming 2024 NFL season unless something happens during training camp or the preseason.

Jordan Travis, Colby Suits and Andrew Peasley battle for the third spot, with Travis having an early lead thanks to his draft position.

Once again, the outcome of the 2024 NFL season will depend solely on the healthy on-field production of Rodgers, who could make this team a legitimate Super Bowl title contender if he can resemble the four-time NFL MVP he was at the Green. Baypackers.

Only time will tell if Rodgers can stay healthy next season and if he still has something left in the tank to become one of the best quarterbacks in the league.
