Fowler: Carr Leaning Toward Jets After Team Makes Strong Impression

While the Jets continue playing chicken with Aaron Rodgers, it seems the team’s second choice at quarterback may have the Jets atop his own list.

While the #Panthers and #Saints remain in the conversation for Derek Carr, the former Pro Bowl quarterback has a slight lean toward the #Jets as his next home as of now, per source. Nothing is final, but Jets — who are linked to Aaron Rodgers — have made an impression.

NFL insider Jeremy Fowler is reporting that Derek Carr, who has had two visits with the Jets thus far has a “slight lean” toward Gang Green after the team “made an impression” during their time with the signal caller.

With no competent QB on the roster and a top five defense, the Jets have essentially promised the fan base that all efforts will be made to add a veteran quarterback for 2023.  Rodgers’ future is up in the air as he drags out a decision on what to do in 2023, but there are those who feel the the Jets are the front runner to add the future hall of famer.

Daniel Jeremiah and Rich Eisen both mention hearing things "In the halls" of the combine.

DJ says he thinks Rodgers will be a Jet.

Also added he doesn't think it will take a 1st.

With Carr wanting the Jets and the Jets preferring Rodgers, it could be an interesting week and a half as free agency approaches as it is believed that Carr’s preference is to sign before free agency kicks off.
