The New York Jets are exploring a few QB options
The New York Jets are leaving no stone unturned in their search for a quarterback next season. Head coach Robert Saleh has made it well known he intends to have a veteran quarterback under center in 2023. One potential option is a former second-round pick by the team.
The Jets have been linked to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and free agent Derek Carr this offseason. Carr has met with the Jets, and the team seems to like Carr. The Jets inquired about a potential trade for Rodgers, but it is still unclear if Rodgers will play football next season. More names have been added to the Jets’ list to play quarterback in 2023.
According to Albert Breer with Sports Illustrated, the team is looking at signing Geno Smith, who was drafted by the New York Jets in 2013:
“They’re exploring everything, from Rodgers and Carr, to Ryan Tannehill and Jimmy Garoppolo, to even the idea of bringing Geno Smith back or luring Daniel Jones from across town.”
Smith is better this time around
Smith has elevated his game with the Seattle Seahawks. He led the Seahawks to a Wild Card spot after the team traded away Russell Wilson last offseason. Smith won the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award and made the Pro Bowl for the 2022 season. The Seahawks want to sign Smith, but he could fall into free agency.
Daniel Jones would be another intriguing option for the Jets. But Jones wants a serious payday without halfway decent results on the field. Jones, who has never come close to deserving a Pro Bowl or All-Pro award, is looking to be paid in the ballpark of $45 million a year. That would be a steep price for the Jets to pay when Carr wants nearly $10 million less.
