Jets QB Aaron Rodgers: ‘No restrictions’ at OTAs

Four-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers will be ready when the New York Jets begin their offseason training activities on May 20.

Coach Robert Saleh said Friday that the 40-year-old quarterback will have “no restrictions” eight months after Achilles surgery.

After a celebrated tenure with Green Bay, Rodgers’ 2023 Jets debut ended after just four snaps with a torn left Achilles.

Saleh confirmed that Rodgers is on track to participate in “phase three” of OTAs, a four-week period when teams can hold 10 practices with non-contact, 11-on-11 work.

“Once phase three hits, we’re not anticipating any restrictions from what we can and can’t do with him,” Saleh told reporters Friday at the start of a two-day rookie minicamp.

Rodgers participated in practices on a limited basis during the final month of last season.

“The guy can still sling it,” Saleh said, per ESPN. “Obviously, he’s still working through his rehab, but there are no issues on the trajectory on which he’s going.”

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.
