As Aaron Rodgers has moved from the Green Bay Packers to the New York Jets, he has brought quite a few pieces with him.

Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb have joined his new receiver corps.

Tim Boyle signed with the Jets and will now once again serve as depth behind Rodgers.

The Jets even hired his old offensive coordinator to be their OC.

Now it looks there is a former Jets player that wants to make a comeback to play alongside Rodgers.

During an appearance on the I Am Athlete podcast, Brandon Marshall revealed that he wants to come out of retirement to play tight end for the Jets.

“Here’s why I’ll be ready if I get the call to come back as a New York Jets tight end. We’re gonna win the Super Bowl, I’m going to be able to contribute at a high level. And this is what I’m gonna give you: 45 catches, 20-30 plays a game, and eight touchdowns scored,” Marshall said.

Marshall previously spent two years with the New York Jets, including one monster season where he hauled in 109 catches for 1502 yards and 14 touchdowns, earning himself a spot on the All-Pro 2nd team.

Unfortunately, that version of Marshall is not what the Jets would be getting this time around.

That season came back in 2015 and he never topped 800 yards again in his career.

Marshall hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2018.

The jets aren’t all that deep at tight end with Tyler Conklin and CJ uzomah leading the way at the position, but it still seems pretty unlikely that they’ll be looking to bring Brandon Marshall out of retirement to be one of Aaron Rodgers’ targets next season.
