Aaron Rodgers certainly has a way with words and we desperately want to know what he meant during his press conference on Wednesday.
Earlier this offseason, New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson made headlines when he vowed to “make life a living hell” for any new QB who gets brought to the team after he had a tumultuous 2022 season. He had no clue that the QB they would go after was Aaron Rodgers.
It was even noticed on Twitter that Rodgers “liked” a video of Wilson saying the quote after the trade was first reported.
That claim aged horribly.
After the Jets officially acquired four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers in a trade with the Green Bay Packers, Rodgers fielded questions from reporters. Of course, one reporter asked about Wilson and what he previously stated.

Rodgers answered the question by confusing everybody.
“He’s going to make my life hell in practice,” Rodgers said, via ESPN’s Rich Cimini, “and I’m going to make his life heaven off the field.”
Just maybe he means he is going to make his life better by mentoring him to be a better QB than he has shown while in the league.
Wilson, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, has struggled during his first two professional seasons. Last season, he played so badly that the team had to bench him twice and made it very clear they were pursuing another QB to start for them in 2023.
He will now serve as Rodgers’s backup for the foreseeable future.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
