2. The NY Jets are turning around the culture of the organization
For years now, through terrible coaching and unstable management, the Jets have struggled to put a winning team on the field, but after a solid few years under Joe Douglas and Robert Saleh, it appears their culture and reputation around the league are finally beginning to shift.
Top players are now being linked to New York, and solid veterans are looking to join the team to potentially get a chance at a Super Bowl ring. While there's a long way to go before the Jets are considered in the same echelon as teams like the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers, the 2023 offseason is going a long way toward restoring the culture.
Only time will tell if this can be maintained, as the Jets have struggled for long periods of success throughout the history of the franchise, but if they can get solid QB play and great coaching, this could finally be the start of a successful period for a long-suffering fan base.
1. Finally, the NY Jets have landed a star at quarterback
Since Joe Namath, the Jets have struggled more than any other team in the league (potentially not the Chicago Bears) to find a star at the quarterback position, and 15 years after landing a former Green Bay Packers veteran QB, they managed to do the same thing this offseason.
While it's not going to be prime Aaron Rodgers, the four-time MVP looks to be reinvigorated with the Jets, and after a year of the No. 32 ranked quarterback play in the entire NFL, this is like winning the lottery for long-starving Jets fans.
With a solid group of weapons, bringing in Rodgers will be an important influence on the field, as well as a great leader for this young locker room. No matter what happens this season, the Jets have upgraded in a major way at the most important position in football.
