Joe Namath didn’t shy away from saying how he felt about having Aaron Rodgers on the New York Jets.

Last month, Broadway Joe made it clear that he’d part ways with his legendary #12 if it meant Rodgers on the Jets. Then on Thursday, Namath once again made it very clear that he wanted the future Hall of Famer on the team.

The New York Post wrote:

Jets Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath reiterated what he said on WFAN a few weeks back about allowing Rodgers to wear his retired No. 12 if he comes to the Jets.

“I want the Jets to win,” Namath said.

Namath fawned over Rodgers and said that he was a fan of his. He joked that Chicago might not have been, but that “everybody is,” per the New York Post.

Aaron Rodgers and New York have been linked several times this offseason. Which, if you’re a Green Bay Packers fan, has to kind of feel like a cruel joke at this point. Especially considering the hoopla of 2008. 15 years later, we’re somehow back to it again.

Of course, any Rodgers transaction this off-season would have to either come from the man himself or from the Packers. He’s under contract and the team can only move him if they decide to trade him. That would require them to want to do it, as well. Rodgers may also retire, we don’t know, but he’s apparently going on some strange trek and we’ll find out after.

But Broadway Joe has made it clear he’ll personally do what he needs to do, and he wants it to happen.
