Sauce Gardner, Breece Hall make their pitch for Aaron Rodgers to join Jets: ‘I won’t pick you off in practice’

The Jets have begun an all-out pursuit of Aaron Rodgers, reportedly flying all key team officials to California on Tuesday to meet with the four-time MVP.

Sauce Gardner and Breece Hall didn’t tag along, but they’re doing their part to get Rodgers to New York.

Gardner tagged Rodgers on Twitter, telling him, “I promise if you become a Jet, I won’t pick you off in practice” and pledging the burn the cheesehead hat he wore in Green Bay last season.

Hall isn’t trying to sell Rodgers on the Jets, but he’s putting some positive energy out there.

The Rodgers sweepstakes began to gain steam late Monday night, when Trey Wingo reported the Jets and Rodgers had spoken to each other recently.

Multiple reports Tuesday indicated the two sides were continuing discussions, and ESPN later reported the Jets’ braintrust of Woody Johnson, Robert Saleh, Joe Douglas, and Nathaniel Hackett is headed west to meet with Rodgers in-person.

Gardner and Hall are two reasons why Rodgers might have interest in a long-suffering Jets franchise. Gardner was a first-team All-Pro as a rookie in 2022, emerging as one of the league’s best cornerbacks, while Hall gave New York an impressive running game before suffering a torn ACL in October. 

The Jets often looked a quarterback away in 2022, and winning with a team that hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2010 would be a boost to Rodgers’ legacy.

One can only wonder what Zach Wilson is thinking as he watches his teammates lobby for another quarterback.
