In the latest episode of The Jet Press Podcast, Justin Fried and Mike Luciano discuss the return of Aaron Rodgers, potential Nathaniel Hackett replacements, possible changes to the NY Jets offensive line, and players Rodgers can recruit this offseason.

The first topic of discussion was the return (sort of) of Rodgers this week. The Jets officially activated Rodgers to their 53-man roster, although he is not expected to play in a game this season. To make room, the Jets released fullback Nick Bawden.

Justin and Mike discuss why the Jets opted to do this and why it's probably not as big of a deal as many are making it out to be.

Jets offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett has understandably come under fire this season, but would the Jets seriously consider making a change? Could Hackett be demoted to a new role? Could he be fired? We took a look at a few possible replacements for Hackett in the offseason.

The Jets' offensive line remains a position of need entering the 2024 offseason, and with only 2-3 locked-in starters right now, the team should be busy. Justin and Mike broke down what the Jets' offensive line might look like in 2024.

Which offensive line starters are probably safe to return next season? What moves should the Jets make? What options are available in free agency and the 2024 NFL Draft?

As for Rodgers, he made it a point of emphasis to serve as a recruiter for the Jets this past offseason. While many of his recruitment pushes may not have worked out, the four-time MVP promises to do more of the same in 2024.

Which players could Rodgers look to recruit to the Jets this offseason? Guys like Davante Adams and David Bakhtiari come to mind, but there are quite a few others (some former Packers) that make sense.

Finally, Justin and Mike did their best to preview the team's upcoming Week 16 matchup with the Washington Commanders on Christmas Eve. Yes, we will be streaming live after that game as well, so if you're a sicko like us and want to take time away from your family, feel free to join us this Sunday.
