The Jets are making it clear that they want the back-to-back MVP-winning quarterback on their roster. The New York Jets are the team that is actively pursuing the future Hall of Famer. But Aaron Rodgers did not make a decision about his place in the league. Hence, to lure the star QB, New York is now opting to take a different road. They are working tediously to sign his favorite target, Allen Lazard.
The 27-year-old is closely following A-Rod, just like everybody else. Even he wants to know what his QB will finally decide. However, for now, the star WR has an important decision to make because he hit the free agency market.

New York is chasing the top receiver on the open market. They think that the former GB Packers wide receiver could be a splendid weapon for them.

Lazard and the 10-time Pro Bowl winner are close friends, and since the former is tracking the moves of the latter, it raises the question: will Rodgers follow where his former trusty target goes?

Considering the number the Iowa product has put up with Rodgers (Lazard hauled up 168 passes from Rodgers for 2,216 yards and 19 touchdowns), the 39-year-old will definitely consider following him.
The Jets have their eyes on a Green Bay Packers veteran
Lazard is not the only player that the Jets are trying to acquire. Along with him is the veteran star WR Randall Cobb, who wishes to play in 2023. The WR healed his injured ankle because of which he missed four mid-season games. He also underwent surgery, which would allow him to play with no problems.
And since he desires to play this season, there is a high possibility that New York will show an interest in him. Not only Lazard but Cobb was also an essential part of the Packers. Even though the receiver will turn 33, he is still a solid product who put up great numbers.
