After a disappointing 2023 campaign in which he only played four snaps, Aaron Rodgers is looking ahead to a comeback season in 2024. It turns out he has his eyes on an even longer stint with the New York Jets.

During a recent interview on the "Look into It Podcast With Eddie Bravo", the four-time MVP disclosed that he is nowhere near retirement.

"I've been in a good place rehab-wise, from the start, and feeling really good. I'm hopeful I can play two, three or four more years, but you need to have some good fortune in there too."

The fact that rehab is going well is a huge relief for Jets fans, who desperately need consistent and good quarterback play after having one of the most dysfunctional offenses in recent memory last year. However, the mention of "good fortune" in Rodgers' words is revealing.

At the end of the day, Rodgers is 40 years old and coming off an Achilles tear. There isn't too much precedence for a player that age coming off a serious injury and playing at an MVP level again. There is no telling how good Rodgers is going to be, not only next season but three or four seasons down the line.

But if anyone else other than Tom Brady is going to sustain elite QB play into their mid-40s, it will be Rodgers. The man has won back-to-back MVPs in his age 37 and 38 seasons after all. And the betting markets don't think it's too crazy to think that Rodgers may be able to do it again, having him tied for No. 12 in the NFL with +2500 odds

This will all depend on how the Jets 2024 season goes. Entering the 14th season of playoff drought, general manager Joe Douglas, coach Robert Saleh, and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett all have their jobs on the line. Rodgers' future is similarly dependent on the 2024 campaign but it looks like he has at least no intention of hanging up his cleats.
