4. New York Jets

What an absolute wreck the New York Jets have become. I guess that's what happens when you bank your entire season on a 40-year-old veteran quarterback taking you to the promised land. Since Rodgers' injury in Week 1, the Jets have all but crumbled. They have worked their way to the no. 6 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft as of right now and are fully on the outside of the playoff picture.

New York's best hope is to look ahead to 2024 when Rodgers plans to come back and give it one more go. With Garrett Wilson already on board and blossoming into one of the league's best young wideouts, Evans would be an ideal compliment. Rodgers, if healthy, could come out and have one of his best seasons yet, even at this age.

Rodgers had been used to having a big, dominant wide receiver for most of his career whether we're talking Davante Adams or prime Jordy Nelson. He relishes the opportunity to perfectly place a football for an alpha outside wide receiver. He's one of the best there ever was to throw a back shoulder fade in the red zone. Evans might just set a career-high in touchdowns if he landed in New York next year.
