By Justin Fried
NY Jets are celebrating in the physical and virtual streets of Florham Park following the announcement that the team has officially traded for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Following months of anticipation, the deal was officially finalized on Monday. Rodgers is a member of the Jets. He will be the starting quarterback in 2023. It's really happening.
One of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history and a surefire first-ballot Hall of Famer is on his way to Florham Park, where he will look to lead the Jets to football immortality. You're not dreaming — this is reality.
As one might expect, Jets fans on social media had quite an exuberant reaction to this announcement. Emotions ranged from jubilation to downright disbelief. Either way, the reactions were priceless.

Jets players quickly took to Twitter after the announcement to express their excitement about the arrival of their newest teammate.
Everyone from Breece Hall to Sauce Gardner to Mekhi Becton made sure to share their takes on the Rodgers trade, with a number of Jets players changing their profile pictures to a photo of Aaron Rodgers wearing No. 8 at Cal.
Rodgers will reportedly switch to wearing No. 8 with the Jets instead of taking Joe Namath's retired No. 12.
Jets running back Breece Hall seems to be feeling healthier after the Rodgers trade, at least according to the man himself. I'm sure that's not a coincidence at all.
Jets players weren't the only ones to express their excitement. It's clear that many are thrilled about this move and very bullish on what this means for the Jets in 2023.
