While we all await Aaron Rodgers’ decision on whether he wants to play for the New York Jets, Green Bay Packers, or retire, many Jets players have taken to Twitter to try to recruit the four-time MVP.

NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Sauce Gardner tweeted to Aaron Rodgers, promising not to intercept him at practice if he joins the Jets. He added that he would burn the Cheesehead he wore at Lambeau Field after the Jets beat the Packers this past season.

To be fair, that’s a great offer. If that doesn’t tempt Rodgers to make the move, I don’t know what will.

But Gardner hasn’t been alone in trying to recruit Rodgers to the Jets. Many of his teammates have done the same thing.

All-Pro defensive lineman Quinnen Williams tweeted that he knows “some amazing golf courses in New Jersey and NYC” that may interest Rodgers.

Tight end Tyler Conklin had this to say.

Cornerback Justin Hardee tweeted about the possibility of Rodgers winning a Super Bowl with the Jets.

Jets players sure seem to like the idea of Aaron Rodgers heading to New York, and who could blame them?

The Jets have an excellent roster, including the NFL Offensive and Defensive Rookies of the Year in Garrett Wilson and Sauce Gardner.

Add Aaron Rodgers to their roster, and the Jets become contenders in the AFC, there’s no doubt about it.

Would they have enough to take down the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, and Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC? Who knows, but it sure would be fun to find out.

In the coming days, we’ll hopefully find out what Rodgers’ future plans are. A trade to the Jets is entirely possible, and it would make sense for Rodgers and the Packers.

And it seems he would be welcomed by his new teammates.
