12. Yosh Nijman, OT

The Jets could be looking to add some offensive line depth in free agency, and one former Rodgers teammate who makes sense is Yosh Nijman. Nijman is a veteran swing tackle who has started 21 games over the last two seasons for the Packers.

The Jets could probably use more help building their interior offensive line depth, but if they're looking for a swing tackle with ties to both Rodgers and Nathaniel Hackett, Nijman might be their guy.

11. Eric Wilson, LB

Eric Wilson only spent a few months with Rodgers this past season, so this connection isn't exactly very strong. Still he could make sense as a Jets target regardless.

Wilson blocked a punt against the Jets last season and led the Packers in special-teams tackles, despite joining the team in October. As a depth linebacker/special teamer, Wilson is a sensible target.

10. Adrian Amos, S

The Jets should be looking for safety help, even after acquiring Chuck Clark. One versatile veteran safety they could target in free agency is Adrian Amos.

Amos is coming off a down year in Green Bay, but from 2017-2021, he was one of the better safeties in football. It also might help that he's spent the last four seasons of his career playing alongside Rodgers with the Packers.

9. Rasul Douglas, CB

Rasul Douglas isn't a free agent like many of the others on this list, but if you've paid any attention to Rodgers' Twitter interactions over the last few days, you'd realize how close he is with the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

The Jets are pretty set at cornerback, but perhaps there's a reality where they acquire Douglas as part of the Rodgers trade. The former third-round pick played 89 percent of the Packers' defensive snaps last season.
