Aaron Rodgers has officially hit the ground running on his new team, executing a perfect pass in Jets practice following off-field outings on Broadway
Footage shows the 39-year-old quarterback throwing a dime to teammate and wide receiver Malik Taylor, right in front of head coach Robert Saleh during scrimmage on Monday at Florham Park.
‘A thing of beauty,’ the NFL’s official Twitter account shared as a caption to the video of Rodgers’ assist.
‘Them: how many times have you watched this @AaronRodgers12 throw?’ wrote the Jets’ official account on Twitter. ‘us: yes.’
Fellow red shirts, Zach Wilson, who is set to lose his starting spot at quarterback, and Chris Streveler, who joined ‘Gang Green’ in January, watched on while Rodgers was fully locked in.
HE’S STILL GOT IT: Aaron Rodgers, 39, executed a perfect pass in Jets practice on Monday
Rodgers, who tweaked his calf in practice in May (pictured then), looked healthy in scrimmage
The 2011 Super Bowl champion (XLV), who tweaked his calf in practice late May, was seen at the Metlife Stadium when Taylor Swift came to the Big Apple to perform her Era’s Tour.
The four-time league MVP, who’ll be playing at the venue later this year following his trade to New York from the Green Bay Packers in April, reflected on the concert on social media on May 29.
‘Incredible weekend at my new home #metlifestadium with some special friends Miles and @keleighteller, a bunch of new ones, and the legendary @taylorswift who absolutely rocked the house for 3 1/2 hours each night!!!
Rodgers has been out and about in the Big Apple, including at a Taylor Swift concert on May 29
‘She is truly a master entertainer and epic human, and @phoebebridgers was spectacular as well.
‘Thanks to the great security folks, the sweet fans that I met, and all the hospitality from the Tour both nights Hopefully we can make MetLife that loud this year.’
Rodgers revealed himself to be a massive T-Swift fan in a video posted to the team’s official Twitter account, when players were asked their favorite song from the singer.
‘Too many. Too many to count,’ the Jets No. 8 said when asked the question.
Rodgers was also pictured with teammates on Broadway in June to see the musical ‘Wicked’
Then he got a bit more specific.
‘Anything off of [her album] ‘Folklore’ probably. ‘August,’ ‘The 1.”
Rodgers also offered an older pick to supplement his choices from Swift’s 2020 album, as he called ‘New Year’s Day’ a ‘banger.’
He was also seen checking into the Broadway show ‘Wicked’ with Streveler and other teammates, including CJ Uzomah and Tim Boyle, earlier in June.
Rodgers was also spotted at Madison Square Garden twice: to watch the New York Knicks take on the Miami Heat in an NBA playoff game with Sauce Gardner; and the New York Rangers in the NHL postseason.
