The New York Jets go into 2024 with the hopes of making a deep postseason run. They made some big-time additions with Tyron Smith, Mike Williams, and Haason Reddick to help raise the floor of this team.

The team expects Aaron Rodgers to return after he tore his Achilles last season just four plays into the season. Rodgers is currently 40 yards old and will be turning 41 by the end of the regular season.

New York signed Tyrod Taylor (34) to be the backup QB this offseason so they badly need to add a young arm to that room.

The Jets have one, maybe two years left with Rodgers with no plan in place to eventually replace him.

Below we'll discuss four QBs the Jets could draft to be Rodgers' successor.

1. Jordan Travis, Florida State

Quarterback Jordan Travis is an athletic difference-maker under center. Travis has light feet to quickly move out of the pocket and throws well on the move. He also does an amazing job keeping the ball safe and not turning it over.

Travis is a nimble athlete who is fearless as a passer. He finished his college career with the most total touchdowns in FSU history (99) with 8,715 passing yards and 1,950 rushing yards.

Unfortunately, the Florida native suffered a leg fracture that ended his 2023 season. He recently was told by his doctors that he should be cleared by late April, which is great news.

Travis has a terrific mental makeup in combination with his stellar play on the field. He also has a Top-30 visit scheduled with the Jets.
