What is Rodgers thinking – one year or more? Dan Leberfeld

At his introductory press in Florham Park on Wednesday, new Jets QB Aaron Rodgers was asked if he intends to play beyond the 2023 season.

“Right now, I’m just going to focus on this season,” Rodgers said.

However, later in the day, when he talked to the beat writers separately and asked the same question, it certainly sounded like he intends on playing more than one season for the Jets.

“I think so, I really do,” Rodgers said about playing beyond this upcoming season. “They definitely gave up some picks for me to be here. This isn’t like a one-and-done in my mind.”

That has to make the Jets and their fans feel pretty good, considering how much the organization gave to Green Bay to acquire him.

But with that being said, Rodgers, like many great athletes, is a process thinker and knows that he needs to focus on the here and now, and not look too far ahead.

“I want to be in the present and not talk about future things,” Rodgers said. “It’s about being fully committed for this season.”
