Before the 2023 season, the New York Jets fan base has seen a revival, and Aaron Rodgers seems to play a significant role in that.
Many others questioned if Rodgers would have the same impact in New York as he did when he left the Green Bay Packers on a negative note.
He appears to be more motivated than ever, but he also recently accepted a $35 million pay cut.
Joy Taylor spoke about the popular perception of Rodgers in a part of Speak on FS1 following the announcement of his wage cut.
Taylor claimed that while he was tolerated in Green Bay, he is now a hero with the Jets.

Rodgers appears to have undergone a significant cultural transformation, or perhaps he actually thinks the Jets hold the key to success.
Almost all of the news coming out of the Jets camp has been favorable for Rodgers.
Prior seasons saw Rodgers taking a significant offseason hiatus, not picking up a football until required team activities.
With the Jets, this hasn’t been the case as Rodgers has been spotted throughout the offseason with his new receivers.
The Jets roster is buzzing in a way that hasn’t been felt in a while, despite having the longest active postseason drought in the league.
A rising number of people think that, if healthy, Rodgers can lead this team to the playoffs and then have a successful postseason.
While the Jets have their work cut out for them, anything is possible if Rodgers produces even remotely close to his MVP-caliber seasons.
