Amid rumors that he could be traded to the New York Jets, Aaron Rodgers praised Jets quarterback Zach Wilson on Tuesday.

“I think he’s super talented,” the Green Bay Packers QB said of Wilson, who’s struggled mightily his first two NFL seasons.

“I think he’s talented enough to have a long career in this League.”

Rodgers made his comments on the Pat McAfee Show. He also offered some advice to Wilson, who’s mechanics and confidence are a mess after a season when the No. 2 pick in the 2021 draft was benched twice and played only nine games for the Jets.

“For [Wilson] it’s going to be humility, just lean into that, and be consistently working on the fundamentals,” Rodgers said.

Wilson has been compared at times to Rodgers for his ability to make the thrilling off-schedule pass. But Rodgers pointed out that the best NFL quarterbacks are able to make the big play and be consistent in the pocket, as well. One of Wilson’s biggest issues is his inability to make the layups, the easy passes in the flat or over the middle.

“I think he’s so talented, but the best in the business can make all the plays outside the pocket, can move around, but fundamentally inside the pocket … that’s where you beat teams,” Rodgers explained.

Rodgers made the comments amid speculation about his future. Green Bay could be ready to move on from the 39-year-old future Hall-of-Famer so that Jordan Love can take over as their starting QB.

Last week, Jets legend Joe Namath praised Rodgers and said he’d give New York permission to let Rodgers wear his No. 12, which was retired by the team in 1985, should it acquire him.

Jets coach Robert Saleh said the team is committed to developing Wilson. But he also said, “We are going to be aggressive as heck when it comes to quarterback play and making sure we do everything we can to satisfy that position.”

Woody Johnson, the Jets owner, was asked last week if he’d be willing to spend big money on a veteran quarterback this offseason. He replied, “Absolutely.”

Derek Carr, Jimmy Garoppolo and Rodgers fit the bill as veteran QBs who could be available. But Rodgers didn’t seem to be lobbying to play with NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Garrett Wilson and the Jets next season with his praise of Zach Wilson.

Time will tell if Rodgers replaces Wilson as the Jets starter next season.
