What Does Rodgers Have Left in the Tank?
A frequent offseason topic of debate will be what the future holds for Aaron Rodgers from a productivity standpoint. It certainly wasn’t his most productive season as he finished just 20th among qualified quarterbacks in EPA+CPOE composite, 26th in QBR, and 17th in passer rating.
To be fair to Rodgers, though, he did lose his top wideout in Davante Adams and had to adjust to a new receiving corps headlined by two rookies in Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson who were second and third at the position in targets.
In addition, Rodgers played through an avulsion fracture of his right thumb in his throwing hand for most of the season. It’s certainly plausible that an injury to that degree would limit his throwing ability.
At 39 years of age, though, how much does Aaron Rodgers have left in the tank? How much will the Jets need to support him with their current infrastructure?
Updated Look at the Jets Offense
The Jets have built up an impressive group of skill position talent for Rodgers to work with headlined by wide receiver Garrett Wilson. Despite catching passes from three different subpar quarterbacks, Wilson finished his rookie season with 83 catches for 1,103 yards and four touchdowns.
Elijah Moore was traded this offseason to the Browns, leaving Corey Davis and veteran free agency signings Mecole Hardman and Allen Lazard to round out the receiving corps.
Rookie running back Breece Hall also looked phenomenal before suffering a season-ending torn ACL as he compiled 681 yards from scrimmage and five touchdowns through seven games.
Mekhi Becton missed the entire year, but he did show flashes of high level play in his first two NFL seasons. Alijah Vera-Tucker played very well at tackle and guard before getting hurt while rookie Max Mitchell filled in admirably as a fourth-round pick. Laken Tomlinson is the only lineman still on the roster who played more than 500 snaps last year.
Two starting offensive linemen from last season – George Fant and Connor McGovern – have become free agents, and it’s unclear if the Jets will resign them. However, the pieces are in place for a very strong O-line.
