The New York Jets have added a surprising quarterback to their ranks while they continue to wait on the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers remains a Packers player, having announced he would like to play for the Jets next season. And it appears the latter is keen on making him as happy as possible as they have gone out and signed one of his former backups.
According to the NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo, the Jets have signed Tim Boyle to a one-year deal. The move has seen Boyle reunited with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett ahead of what they hope will be a reunion with his former teammate.
While Rodgers has denied giving the Jets a wishlist of players he would like them to sign, they’ve previously acquired another former teammate in Allen Lazard, signing the wide receiver to a four-year deal worth $44 million in March.

Boyle, who was undrafted out of Kentucky in 2018, spent two years on the Packers roster playing backup to Rodgers before leaving in 2020. He has since served as a backup QB for the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears.
It appears he’s set to play behind his old mate in New York for at least another season, with the Jets intent on making A-Rod their starting QB ahead of next term.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
