Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets would impact Detroit Lions

On Thursday news broke that the New York Jets have hired former Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett to be their offensive coordinator. Ever since that news broke, there has been plenty of speculation that it is just a matter of time before the Jets acquire Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. If Rodgers heads to the Jets, it would also impact the Detroit Lions, who are expected to contend for an NFC North title in 2023.

How Aaron Rodgers leaving would impact the Detroit Lions

Rodgers has made it pretty clear that he will not play for the Packers in 2023 if they decide to begin a rebuilding phase, and though the Packers have not said that is the case, it seems like that is the direction they could be heading toward. If he leaves the Packers, the Lions will have a better chance of winning the NFC North.

  • Rodgers is 39 years old and his days in the NFL are limited
  • He only wants to play for a team that is focused on winning a Super Bowl in 2023
  • Hackett was the offensive coordinator of the Packers from 2019-2021 
  • If Rodgers leaves Green Bay, the Lions’ chances of winning the NFC North will go up

Bottom Line

Rodgers is clearly getting toward the end of his NFL career and he wants to win another Super Bowl before he retires. If the Packers are not willing to retool for the 2023 season, Rodgers will almost certainly request to be traded and it seems like the Jets, who now have Nathanial Hackett as their OC, would be a solid fit. If Rodgers does go to the Jets, or if he leaves for any other team, the Lions’ chances of winning the NFC North and hosting a playoff game will increase.
