2. Packers have a far better offensive line than Jets

The Jets need a plan to help protect their MVP quarterback entering his age-40 season. In Green Bay, he would've had an excellent offensive line in front of him.

The Packers have five-time All-Pro David Bakhtiari and two-time Pro Bowler Elgton Jenkins on the left side of the line and plenty of competition for starting positions elsewhere.

New York has far more concerns along the line. ESPN's Mike Clay ranked every offensive line in the league. He has the Packers 12th and the Jets 26th.

Ironically, the Rodgers trade may have cost the Jets a chance to upgrade their offensive line. Part of the deal was to swap first-rounders from No. 13 to No. 15. The Pittsburgh Steelers then jumped ahead of the Jets to No. 14, selecting Georgia tackle Broderick Jones.

The Jets ended up signing former Packers offensive lineman Billy Turner, who can start at right tackle.

New York also missed out on free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham, a move that would've significantly helped improve the offense.

But the biggest concern is the offensive line. It could become an issue when they take on some of the best pass rushes in the playoffs. Maybe the Jets could trade for David Bakhtiari...
