The struggling New York Jets fortunes seemed to turn around with the acquisition of Rodgers this offseason, leading them to aspire for their second Super Bowl. Following the team’s appearance on “Hard Knocks” this summer, where Rodgers expressed his optimism for the Jets to win the Lombardi Trophy, it generated a lot of conjecture.
Unfortunately, instead of leading the team to the Super Bowl, the Jet’s offensive leader wrote down his name on the list of players with season-ending injuries. Nevertheless, amid the excitement he brought to the Big Apple, the team made a sizable profit, which forced them to raise ticket prices again as demand increased due to speculation about Aaron’s potential return.
Jets’ season-ticket demand rises despite Aaron Rodgers’ setback
After tearing his Achilles in his debut game for the Jets, Aaron Rodgers hinted at his return on the field this season, which garnered attention of many medical experts of the New York City. In any case, fans may at least anticipate Aaron Rodgers in the upcoming season if it doesn’t materialize. The Gang Green team needed to figure out a means to make more money as a result, and according to the NY Post, they have increased ticket costs by an average of 10% for 2024.
The team has increased ticket costs for the third year in a row, having not done so since 2016. The Jets organization also wants to know how many of their current season ticket holders intend to renew for the upcoming season, as this will determine how much inventory they will have.
Because of this, even though the season ticket renewal date is in the spring, they encourage their most loyal clients to renew by November 15. Fans wishing to purchase season tickets for 2024 are already submitting requests to the team.
Rodgers teases shock comeback weeks after season-ending surgery
Normally, an Achilles injury requires more than six weeks to recover. Yet, Aaron Rodgers is seemingly totally different among the sufferers of this injury. Two days after the injury, the four-time MVP had surgery and was recovering in the Los Angeles area. He quickly boarded a plane across the state and joined the team in the locker room after receiving the physicians’ approval.
In addition, Aaron Rodgers was seen throwing a few short passes and walking without crutches during the Jets’ pregame warm-up against the Philadelphia Eagles after just three weeks. As rumors emerged about his road to recovery, the 39-year-old proclaimed he was “obviously, ahead of schedule.”
The former player for the Green Bay Packers added that he enjoys setting goals in every situation, and this time he set the goal of playing again this season after a quick recuperation.
“Getting back out there and messing around in the pre-game warm ups, to be able to walk out there without crutches and throw a ball around a little bit – that gave me a jolt. I’m just having the mindset with my rehab every day to hopefully come back at some point.”
With his degree of tenacity and team loyalty, a player like Aaron Rodgers can overcome any obstacle. Do you believe he will be able to accomplish this in the end? Tell us what you think in the comments section.
