BREAKING: NFL Dishes Out Huge News For Former Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers moved on from Aaron Rodgers approximately 13 months ago.  Since then, the Packers have put themselves in a position to actually compete for a championship.  Jordan Love appears to be the next franchise quarterback in Green Bay, there are a plethora of young weapons around him, and the defense got a massive facelift this off-season.

The Jets obviously had a tough first year with Rodgers and injuries across their whole team.  However, going into 2024 they expect to be right back in championship conversations.  That’s what having a four-time MVP quarterback will do for your team.

Today the league announced some pretty big news for Rodgers and the Jets.

Former Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers Gets Big News From The NFL

According to Rich Cimini of ESPN:

Aaron Rodgers‘ comeback season will open in prime time, as the New York Jets will travel to the San Francisco 49ers to face the defending NFC champions Sept. 9 on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” it was announced Tuesday morning.

This marks the second straight season that Rodgers and the Jets will play a prime-time game in Week 1. His Jets debut last Sept. 11 turned into a season-altering disaster for the Jets, as the four-time MVP tore his left Achilles on the fourth snap and missed the remainder of the season.

It’s a fascinating quarterback matchup, as Rodgers squares off against Brock Purdy, the 2022 Mr. Irrelevant who has turned into one of the NFL’s biggest success stories. The 49ers are coming off a crushing defeat in Super Bowl LVIII, a 25-22 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Rodgers suffered his injury last season on a sack from then-Buffalo Bills pass-rusher Leonard Floyd. Against the 49ers, Rodgers likely will have to again keep an eye out for Floyd, who signed with San Francisco this offseason.

The Jets Will Look To Bounce Back From Their 2023 Season

With quarterback instability, the Jets struggled to a 7-10 record last year.

Against the 49ers, Rodgers is 6-3 in his career. However, the 49ers have eliminated Rodgers from the playoffs four consecutive times when they’ve met (2012, 2013, 2019, and 2021).

Rodgers attended UC Berkeley and grew up in Chico, California. He had expected the 49ers to draft him first overall in 2005, but they drafted Alex Smith instead.

It has always felt personal when Rodgers lines up against the San Francisco 49ers.  This will certainly be a marquee matchup in Week One.
