The NY Jets continue to wait on Aaron Rodgers to make a decision on his NFL future, and the team might be getting tired of waiting.

It was reported by uSTADIUM on Sunday that the Jets brass is "anxious" to hear from Rodgers and that "they want this done fast." Unfortunately, it's been over a week since Rodgers emerged from his darkness retreat and we still don't have a resolution.

The assumption is that this situation will resolve itself within the next few days as free agency is set to unofficially begin next Monday. Everyone involved, from the Jets to Rodgers to Derek Carr, wants to be settled by then.

That means Rodgers has less than a week to make his decision, and the Jets might only have a few days to enact their plan. Buckle up for what promises to be a franchise-altering week.

Duane Brown returning in 2023

Jets offensive tackle Duane Brown is set to return for his 17th NFL season in 2023 as the longtime veteran has opted against retiring, per ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Brown recently underwent offseason shoulder surgery to repair an injury that plagued him for the entirety of the 2022 season. Rather than sit out and collect his guaranteed money, Brown chose to play through significant pain last year.

Now, the five-time Pro Bowler will return and is probably the favorite to start at left tackle right now. The Jets could still consider addressing the position in the draft, but Brown provides them with more flexibility.

You can never have too much offensive line depth. Duane Brown returning is encouraging news for the Jets.

Mid-round OL prospect is a massive Jets fan

The Jets drafted local Long Island native, and childhood Jets fan, Jeremy Ruckert in the third round of last year's draft. They'll have an opportunity to make a similar childhood dream come true this offseason.

Ohio State center Luke Wypler detailed his love of the Jets in a recent interview with ESPN's Rich Cimini. The New Jersey native was a diehard Jets fan growing up and even named his dog "Chez," after former quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Wypler went on to play at Ohio State, where he followed in the footsteps of one of his idols, Nick Mangold. He even wore Mangold's No. 74 in high school.

Wypler told Cimini that playing for the Jets "would be a childhood dream come true." The Jets might be looking for a center in the draft, and if they do, Wypler would be a fun player to target on Day 2.
