The New York Jets find themselves with a glaring gap in their quarterback lineup, following the season-ending injury to Aaron Rodgers, who tore his Achilles tendon.
One name that has been buzzing around social media as a potential replacement is none other than the retired quarterback legend, Tom Brady.
Former NFL general manager, Mike Tannenbaum, expressed his willingness to reach out to Brady’s agent via Twitter if he were in charge of the Jets’ operations.
Shannon Sharpe chimed in on “First Take” on September 12, saying, “I’m reaching out to Tom Brady… We’ve got $25 million on the table for you. Can you come and give us a boost?”
Longtime NFL columnist Gary Myers echoed the sentiment, urging the Jets to make the call to Brady on Twitter. Myers even speculated that Brady has an affinity for New York and suggested the incredible possibility of him leading the Jets to a Super Bowl victory, comparing their roster’s potential to that of the Buccaneers in 2020.
Brady Emerges as the Top Quarterback Option for the Jets in 2023
The pool of available quarterbacks on the open market in September leaves much to be desired.
Carson Wentz, Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, and Nick Foles are the types of free agents who can be signed at any time. However, they are available for a reason at this stage of the season – they are either aging, dealing with injuries, or a combination of both.
With Rodgers previously steering the ship, the Jets harbored Super Bowl aspirations. However, those dreams appear precarious with Zach Wilson and Tim Boyle as the only quarterbacks currently on the roster.
Wentz, Ryan, Flacco, or even Foles may not be enough to sustain those championship hopes. In contrast, a figure like Brady could potentially reignite them.
With seven NFL championship rings to his name and a history of achieving success with a different team late in his career, Brady presents an enticing opportunity. He could make history once more by becoming the first starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl with three different organizations.
Brady has consistently defied expectations and showed no signs of slowing down in his last season in 2022. He threw for over 4,694 passing yards, maintained an impressive 25 touchdown-to-9 interception ratio, and boasted a completion rate of 66.8 percent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
