Dalvin Cook talks about Aaron Rodgers’ role in him signing with Jets
The New York Jets thrust themselves into the title-contending conversation during the NFL offseason. The acquisition of superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a blockbuster trade with the Packers changed the game for them.
After the arrival of Rodgers, the Jets are viewed as a serious threat in the AFC. As well as Rodgers, they have a lot of weapons on offense and a lot of talented players on defense.
As if the Jets weren’t already headed in the right direction, New York was able to sign four-time Pro Bowler Dalvin Cook, which makes the run game that much more intimidating.
On Thursday, Cook spoke to the media for the first time since signing with the Jets and talked about Rodgers’ role in signing with the team via ESPN.
“He doesn’t have to recruit; his game recruits itself,” Cook said Thursday — his first full day as a member of the Jets. “Aaron is Aaron. If you don’t want to be part of something like that, I don’t know what you want in football.”
Whenever a struggling franchise brings in a player of Rodgers’ caliber, things change immediately as there’s a culture shift, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning with the Denver Broncos being perfect examples.

Rodgers is the next in line, and if he has his way in New York, he’ll have the same amount of success that Brady and Manning had in the twilight of their NFL careers.
Adding Cook only makes this team that much better offensively and improves this team’s chances of being Super Bowl bound.
