After joining the New York Jets, Aaron Rodgers, 38, bought a $4 million Manhattan condominium, but he immediately has a significant problem.
Rodgers signed with the Jets after months of speculation, ending his 18-year career with the Packers. Rodgers said he joined the Jets because he "believed" in them last week.
"I'm here because I believe in this team," he stated. I trust in Coach Saleh and Joe Douglas' direction—he's picked well the previous couple of years.
He bought a Manhattan apartment after moving to New York. With the Jets' MetLife Stadium over an hour-and-a-half from Rodgers' new house, NFL fans are questioning his purchase.
"That's a really long commute considering the Jet campus is about an hour and a half away," one fan commented. "With traffic - that’s about as close to East Rutherford as Green Bay is."
"This is an opportunity to be a part of a city that's hungry," Rodgers stated in his introduction press conference. It's been twelve years since Super Bowl III and no playoffs.
"So the opportunity to be part of something special here, it's different," Rodgers added.
