Former NFL star says he would come out of retirement to join Aaron Rodgers with the Jets

Aaron Rodgers hasn’t even been with the Jets for a month, and he’s already completely revitalized the franchise.

Since his arrival in late April, not only have tickets sold out faster, but the Jets have been handed over five prime-time games on the 2023 schedule, which is a huge step up from last year, when they only received one. On top of that, Rodgers’ arrival has also led to at least one former NFL star saying he would come out of retirement just so he could play with the four-time NFL MVP.

That former star is Brandon Marshall, and during a recent episode of his “I Am Athlete” podcast, the former NFL wide receiver was asked if he would be interested in playing for the Jets if the opportunity presented itself.

“Yes”, Marshal quickly responded.

Although the six-time Pro Bowler has spent his entire career as a catcher, he said he’d be open to moving to tight end if it meant getting the chance to play with Rodgers for a season.

“Here’s why I’ll be ready if I get the call to come back as the tight end New York Jet: We’re going to win a Super Bowl,” Marshall said. “I’m going to be able to contribute at a high level, and that’s what I’m going to be able to give you: 45 catches all year, 20-30 games per game, and I’m going to give you eight touchdowns.”

Marshall had a prolific 12-year career that saw him voted to six Pro Bowls while earning All-Pro honors in 2012, but he hasn’t played an NFL in five years, which might be the thing. which would eventually dissuade him from making a comeback. Marshall, who turned 39 in March, was also asked if he could handle taking a beating. He didn’t seem too enthusiastic about it.

“I’ll watch the games now and I’ll be like, ‘How could I do that?'” Marshall said. “I might get hit the first time and say, ‘Why did I do that?'”

Marshall has a history with the Jets: Not only did he spend two seasons with the team (2015-16), but in his first year with the Jets, he led the NFL in receiving touchdowns with 14. Marshall knows also very good Rodgers. after spending three seasons (2012-14) playing for the Bears.

The problem for Marshall is that the Jets probably have no use for a 39-year-old tight end right now, but if they do, they know who to call.
