Jets Reportedly Wanted To Poach Veteran Quarterback From NFC Team

After ruling out Tom Brady and Colin Kaepernick as Aaron Rodgers successors this autumn, who could the Jets seek to challenge Zach Wilson for the QB1 job? 

This Thursday, the Jets reportedly wanted a 27-year-old quarterback before he was added to the Rams' 53-man roster. 

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Jets "showed interest" in Rams quarterback Brett Rypien today before he was elevated off the practice squad.

"The Rams were elevating Rypien for gameday as QB2, but they knew the Jets were coming and protected him with a roster spot," Fowler tweeted. 

Rypien's promotion to the 53-man roster was sensible for the Rams, if Fowler's information is correct. 

Rypien spent most of 2022 in Denver with Jets offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, he seemed a natural match.
