Joint Practices Rule.

I remember thinking at the time that I didn't want the Jets to practice with the Packers because of the risk of injuries (and yes, Lawson did get hurt).  But it also gave Rodgers a close-up look at Saleh and the Jets coaching staff.  Based on his comments afterwards it was clear that he was impressed.  And then our D trounced them this season, which may have sealed the deal of making him see that this team was on its way up and not the same old Jets  But I'm not sure he would have wanted to come if he didn't have that direct exposure in the joint practice sessions.  Funny how these things can work out. 

That is a very interesting take, I hadn't thought about it at that level. I love the photo of Rodgers next to Saleh laughing. Who knew it was a recruiting visit at the time!
