Aaron Rodgers Prepared For Win Or Bust Season With Jets

Aaron Rodgers says the final hurdle that must be overcome in his recovery from injury is a mental one.

The New York Jets quarterback is 40-years-old ahead of the 2024 NFL season. Aaron Rodgers was supposed to lead the team into a brave new era last season.

However, he tore his Achilles tendon in Week 1, putting Super Bowl ambitions on hold. One year later and far from the start of something, it’s the Jets’ and Rodgers’ last chance. Such is life in the NFL.

“Well, I think if I don’t do what I’m capable of doing, then we’re all probably gonna be out of here (next season),” Rodgers said

“I like that kind of pressure, though. I know it’s a tough market to play in; it’s not for everybody. Relish that opportunity. That’s the way the NFL is. … As you get older in the league, if you do not perform, they’re going to get rid of you or bring in the next guy to take over. It happened in Green Bay, and I’m a few years older than I was back then. I expect to play at a high level, I expect us to be productive and competitive, and all that stuff to take care of itself.”

As far as his fitness goes, Aaron Rodgers says he’s ready physically. Now it’s just about finding his rhythm and getting used to sustaining challenged again.

“I feel really good,” Rodgers said. “It’s just about the mental part. These practices have been nice the last couple of days. Feel what it’s like to be out there, to be moving around, to not be thinking about it and see how I respond the next day. This is the last part.

“The strength is good, the movement is good, just the confidence to do everything.

“I feel like I can do anything,” he said. “I can run at top speed. It’s just, in those moments, the reactions coming naturally.”
