Jets coach on Aaron Rodgers: ‘He’s doing everything’

New York Jets coach Robert Saleh has liked what he’s seen from veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers during organized team activities.

“For him to push the envelope and continue his rehab (from an Achilles injury), he has no restrictions and he looks good, man,” Saleh said on Tuesday. “The arm talent, obviously, is still there. But it’s really just re-acclimating to everything. We’re trying a bunch of new stuff, too. Just trying to evolve within the offense.”

When asked if Rodgers is taking snaps under center and executing footwork on handoffs, Saleh was quick with a response.

“He’s doing everything,” he said.

Rodgers, 40, followed a celebrated tenure with the Green Bay Packers by playing just four snaps before sustaining an Achilles injury during his debut with the Jets on Sept. 11, 2023.

On Tuesday, Saleh said Rodgers is checking the boxes as he continues to recover from the injury.

“As far as we’re concerned, he’s on track and what he’s able to do, there’s no limitations to what we’re asking him to do at practice,” he said.

A four-time NFL MVP, Rodgers passed for 59,055 yards, 475 touchdowns and 105 interceptions in 230 games (223 starts) for the Packers from 2005-22, compiling a record of 147-75-1. He made 10 Pro Bowls and led Green Bay to a Super Bowl XLV victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Jets’ quarterback room also includes veteran Tyrod Taylor and rookie Jordan Travis, drafted in the fifth round last month out of Florida State.
