Aaron Rodgers looks refreshed and reenergized as the New York Jets' new starting quarterback, but he made a head-scratching take on the Pat McAfee Show.
The Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers could both be winners of the trade that sent him to the New York Jets. While the Packers move forward with Jordan Love, Rodgers appears to be loving life in the Big Apple, which is amazing to see.
Rodgers lands in a great situation in New York, giving him a fantastic opportunity to finally win a second Super Bowl. Just as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady did in recent years, Rodgers is aiming to win his second championship with a different team. And he just might.
However, while Rodgers looks refreshed and happy to be on his new team, it has also led to a bad take about one of his new teammates.
Speaking on the Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday, Rodgers compared Jets wide receiver to his former Packers teammate Davante Adams.
Aaron Rodgers makes surprising comparison between Garrett Wilson and Davante Adams
There's no doubt Aaron Rodgers should be excited to work with Garrett Wilson, who is the reigning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Wilson could become a star receiver in the NFL. However, to compare him to Davante Adams after a couple of April practices?
It's a hot take reminiscent of when Adams himself said he was going from "Hall-of-Famer to Hall-of-Famer" when describing the switch from Aaron Rodgers to Derek Carr as his quarterback.
Wilson is an incredibly talented player with huge potential, but Adams is the best receiver Rodgers has played with, and it's not all that close. Only the legendary Don Hutson caught more touchdown passes for the Packers than Adams' 73. Most of them came from the right arm of Rodgers.
They had an unstoppable connection. Adams' first season with Las Vegas was every bit as good, catching 100 passes for 1,516 yards and a league-best 14 touchdowns.
Adams, a six-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro, has put himself in the Hall of Fame conversation. Wilson still has a long way to go.
