New York Jets‘ star quarterback Aaron Rodgers took to social media to wish his backup, Zach Wilson, a happy 24th birthday.

The young quarterback, who will be playing in the Hall of Fame Game against the Cleveland Browns on his special day, seems to have developed a strong bond with the four-time MVP.

On his Instagram Stories, Rodgers shared a humorous birthday post for Wilson, playfully referring to him as “Little bro.”

The post featured a cake emoji along with a hilarious photo of Wilson dressed up as Captain America from his days at BYU.

The light-hearted gesture showcased the camaraderie between the two quarterbacks, who appear to be getting along famously.

Wilson’s journey in the NFL hasn’t been entirely smooth sailing since he was drafted as the second overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

While he was initially expected to be the Jets’ franchise quarterback, he faced plenty of challenges in his rookie season. Head coach Robert Saleh benched him on multiple occasions, prompting the team’s management to reevaluate their quarterback position for the upcoming season.

As Zach Wilson celebrates his birthday on the football field during the preseason game, he can count on the support and mentorship of a seasoned quarterback like Aaron Rodgers, who is likely to be closely observing his progress.

Jets’ fans will be eager to see how the dynamic between these two quarterbacks unfolds throughout the season, as they work together to lead the team to success.
