Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers admits he is not ‘anywhere near ready’ to return to the field but New York’s signal caller is still not ruling playing again this year.
Rodgers, who turns 40 this weekend, had been targeting a possible return on Christmas Eve against the Washington Commanders, just three and a half months after he had surgery on a torn Achilles.
