Ex-Bills QB Named Trade Target for Jets After Aaron Rodgers Injury
After Aaron Rodgers suffered a season-ending injury, the New York Jets plan to remain with Zach Wilson at quarterback,
But one former Buffalo Bills quarterback has been named as a potential trade target should the Jets decide to seek outside aid.
Rodgers was injured while being sacked by edge rusher Leonard Floyd early in the first quarter of the Bills' September 11 victory.
Despite rallying for a 22-16 overtime triumph over the Bills, the Jets' future now appears uncertain, as Rodgers tore his Achilles and will miss the remainder of the season.
According to NorthJersey.com's Jack McKessy, the Jets could examine many seasoned quarterbacks
potential backups to Wilson, including former Bills backup Mitch Trubisky.
"There are several backup quarterbacks with starting experience across the NFL."
Trading for one of them would provide the Jets with more depth chart experience," McKessy wrote.
"Mitch Trubisky (Steelers), Jacoby Brissett (Commanders), Marcus Mariota (Eagles),
Taylor Heinicke (Falcons) are all players who either entered 2022 as Week 1 starters or started the majority of their respective teams' games last year."
