Key Takeaway

Warren Moon believes that Aaron Rodgers will not allow his career to end on a low note with the Achilles tear. Despite the injury and turning 40 soon, Moon expects Rodgers to make a comeback in 2024.

Moon, who personally knows Rodgers, expressed his belief that the quarterback does not want to go out on such a sour note. He stated, “Knowing Aaron Rodgers, I don’t think he wants to go out like this.”

The injury has brought about speculation that Rodgers’ time in the NFL may be over, especially considering he will turn 40 in December. Additionally, Rodgers had already contemplated retirement earlier in the year. However, Moon trusts that Rodgers will make another attempt at playing football, explaining, “My gut tells me that he’s probably going to try it one more time.”

According to Moon, the recovery for Rodgers is projected to take approximately eight to nine months. This timeline allows Rodgers enough time to prepare and gear up for another season in the Big Apple.

Moon also offered his advice on the Jets’ quarterback situation. He believes that the team should continue with Zach Wilson as their QB1 rather than bringing in a veteran like Matt Ryan or Carson Wentz. However, Moon did suggest acquiring an experienced player to serve as a backup for the 24-year-old.
