Aaron Rodgers made a joke about Zach Wilson at his introductory press conference on Wednesday. Wilson had said earlier this offseason that he would “make life a living hell” for whoever the Jets brought in to start at quarterback in 2023.

Rodgers, who was traded to the Jets on Monday, responded to Wilson’s comment by saying, “He’s going to make my life hell in practice, and I’m going to make his life heaven off the field.”
Rodgers’ joke was a good-natured way to address Wilson’s comments and to show that he is willing to help the young quarterback learn and grow.
It is also a sign that Rodgers is excited to be a part of the Jets and to help them win.
Wilson has struggled in his first two seasons in the NFL, but he is still just 22 years old and has plenty of potential. With Rodgers’ help, he could develop into a star quarterback.
Here are some of the reactions to Rodgers’ joke:
- “That was a great joke by Aaron Rodgers. He’s going to be a great mentor to Zach Wilson.” – NFL analyst Chris Mortensen
- “I love that Aaron Rodgers is already having fun with Zach Wilson. This is going to be a great relationship.” – NFL reporter Ian Rapoport
- “Zach Wilson is probably going to be a little nervous about practicing against Aaron Rodgers, but he’s going to learn a lot from him.” – NFL analyst Peter King
It will be interesting to see how Rodgers and Wilson work together this season. If they can develop a good rapport, the Jets could be a playoff team.
