Having played in the league for 18 years, the new Jets QB has never been part of the show and will be making his debut in 2023. The Jets made no secret of their unwillingness to participate and could certainly do without the distraction after pushing all their chips to the middle in an attempt to win a Super Bowl next February.
Rodgers has made his feelings known as it pertains to the recent development, revealing he loves the narrator and is looking forward to meeting him but is otherwise unhappy.
“Listen,” he told KPIX’s Vern Glenn at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe on Wednesday. “One of the only things I like about ‘Hard Knocks’ is the voice of God who narrates it, Liev (Schreiber), I hope I get to meet him. But look, I understand the appeal with us. There’s a lot of eyes on me, eyes on our team, a lot of expectations for our squad. They forced it down our throats and we’ve got to deal with it.”
The Jets don’t have the wherewithal to veto the league’s decision as they fit the criteria this year. ProFootballTalk had previously reported that the NFL “apparently will not be listening to the preferences” of any team.
“I know there are several teams that would love for ‘Hard Knocks’ to be in their building. We’re just not one of them,” Jets head coach Robert Saleh has also said.
While Rodgers and the Jets aren’t pleased, fans are loving the fact that they will get a behind-the-scenes look at the revamped team.
