4. Yosh Nijman, OT

It's no secret that the Jets will be in the market for offensive line help this offseason. While the team will likely look to swing big in free agency or the 2024 NFL Draft, there are a few quality depth pieces that could be added.

One of those depth pieces is Packers offensive tackle Yosh Nijman. Nijman is a former undrafted free agent who has started 22 games over the last three seasons for Green Bay.

The Virginia Tech product has experience playing both left and right tackle, making him an ideal swing tackle and sixth offensive lineman. At the very least, he should be an upgrade over fellow Rodgers recruit Billy Turner.

Nijman wouldn't be a high-profile offensive line signing, but he could bolster the team's depth. It should also be noted that he's yet to miss a game due to injury in his NFL career — something that feels important, given the state of the Jets' offensive line in 2023.

3. Mike Evans, WR

Mike Evans is the only player on this list without any prior ties to Aaron Rodgers. He's also the player on this list that's least likely to join the Jets this offseason. Still, a player of his quality is worth mentioning.

Evans remains one the most unheralded receivers of his generation, and even after 10 years in the league, he's shown few signs of slowing down. The former first-round pick has already solidified his 10th consecutive 1,000-yard season in 2023.

Evans is slated to be a free agent this offseason, but whether he actually hits the open market or not remains to be seen. The longtime Bucs receiver reportedly loves playing in Tampa, and with his team's situation improved from the start of the season, there might not be a reason for him to leave.

Still, if Evans does actually test free agency, Rodgers and the Jets should do everything possible to ensure he ends up in Florham Park. The prospect of playing with an elite QB like Rodgers certainly wouldn't hurt the team's recruiting pitch.
