The New York Jets ‘will not go to the Super Bowl’ if they sign Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay legend LeRoy Butler insists, as he predicts they will win just eight games with the star quarterback!
Aaron Rodgers seems to inevitably end up with the New York Jets sooner rather than later, though that may not be a positive for the franchise, according to Packers legend LeRoy Butler.
As parts of New York and New Jersey jubilant over Rodgers’ imminent arrival, Butler tried to pour cold water on a deep postseason run for Gang Green.
“You’re not going to the Super Bowl,” Butler told Jets fans, via TMZ. The Hall of Fame safety even went a step further by saying the Jets will finish under .500 again.
New York finished the last NFL season at the bottom of the AFC East with a 7-9 record, after losing six straight games to close it out.
As evidenced by a 7-3 start, there’s plenty of promise at Florham Park, although Butler doesn’t necessarily agree.

Rodgers announced his intention to play for the Jets Tuesday during a lengthy interview on the Pat McAfee Show, with a trade package the only thing currently standing between Rodgers and the success-hungry New York franchise.
“I was on a team that went to two Super Bowls, your team has to be close,” Butler said.
‘I don’t know if Aaron Rodgers will be there all offseason to hang out with Rookie of the Year wide receiver (Garrett Wilson).
‘I don’t know if he’s going to be there to go clubbing with Breece Hall. I don’t know.
‘If he’s willing to do that job, you never know. But come on, Jets… the toughest (conference) is the AFC; Joe Burrow, Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen – these guys are not going anywhere. They’re not just going to bed.
‘They’re probably going to win seven, eight games. eight games. Although he has a brighter prediction for Jordan Love and his former team.
‘Now, the Packers are going nine or 10 because we’re all on board. Thanks Jets, shout out to Robert Saleh. Woody (Johnson) thank you!’
During his 12-year NFL career, all with the Packers, Butler was a 4x First-Team All-Pro, is a member of the NFL’s 1990s All-Decade Team, as well as the Green Bay and Hall of Famers. pro football fame.
