NY Jets news: Aaron Rodgers update, more Jets players recruit Rodgers
Don't worry these Aaron Rodgers news updates will (hopefully) be over soon. For now, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport provided the latest update on the NY Jets' pursuit of Rodgers on Wednesday.
Rapoport essentially stated that the Jets, and everyone, remain in a wait-and-see mode as it pertains to Rodgers' future. He insisted that "retirement is still on the table" and that the Jets are the "first and only suitor" that has emerged.
While other reports have suggested that Rodgers could still return to Green Bay, that seems highly unlikely at this stage. The Packers have moved on, as evidenced by their numerous leaked reports over the last couple of months.
Rodgers could make his decision today. He could make it tomorrow. Perhaps he'll make his decision this weekend. Until then, the Jets are essentially on hold.

Jets players continue to recruit Aaron Rodgers
Multiple Jets players have taken to Twitter within the last 48 hours to express their support for their team's pursuit of Rodgers. That trend continued on Wednesday.
In fact, within the span of roughly an hour, the likes of Sauce Gardner, Quinnen Williams, Tyler Conklin, Will Parks, and Justin Hardee all tweeted out recruiting pitches for Rodgers. It seems as though Jets players have been talking about this situation behind the scenes.
Williams pitched Rodgers on some "amazing" local golf courses in the New Jersey area. Gardner continues to tease burning the cheesehead he acquired in Green Bay last year.
My personal favorite recruiting pitch was from Parks who bluntly told Rodgers to "bring that a— over here broski" before kindly ending his tweet with a humble "Thanks in advance brother. We appreciate it."
The Jets players are certainly doing their part.
Former Jets WR Robbie "Chosen" Anderson released
Former Jets wide receiver R̶o̶b̶b̶y̶ R̶o̶b̶b̶i̶e̶ Chosen Anderson was officially released by the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday, saving the team $12 million in the process.
Anderson was acquired by Arizona midseason from the Carolina Panthers, and the former Jets wideout went on to appear in 10 games, hauling in just seven catches for 76 yards.
The 2022 season was a disaster for Anderson, who finished with a dreadful 20 catches for 282 yards, despite playing in 16 games, split between Carolina and Arizona. The midseason trade came after he was kicked out of a Week 6 game by interim head coach Steve Wilks.
Don't count on a Jets reunion with Anderson anytime soon. At this stage, he might be lucky to stick with an NFL team through training camp next summer.
