Calvin Johnson bullish on idea of Aaron Rodgers joining Jets

By , Audacy

Calvin Johnson’s take on Aaron Rodgers is pretty straightforward.

He’s been successful his whole career, why would anything change in New York?

It’s not yet clear what’s next for the Green Bay Packers legend. His time in Green Bay all but certainly seems done, and the Jets have been most closely linked to him. They flew a group of high-ranking officials last week to meet with Rodgers, the most obvious sign yet that he could land with the Jets.

New York represents a good landing spot for Rodgers. They have an exciting, up-and-coming collection of offensive skill players, and their defense was among the best last season.

Johnson always had a dream of playing alongside Rodgers, something he never got to do. He told “Boomer & Gio” on Monday that if the Jets acquired Rodgers, they wouldn’t regret it.

“I think he likes (the idea of New York)," Johnson said. "Obviously, Green Bay, he’s been there his whole career, so there’s definitely some value there. But I think they have a great defense here with the Jets. I think he loves Robert (Saleh). He would come here and it would be his team. He’s that kind of player that I don’t think it matters where he goes, he’s going to have success. If he comes to New York, I would expect nothing less.”

As of Monday morning, neither the Jets nor Packers reportedly knew which way Rodgers was leaning.
