We’ve talked about connections in this article being important to where Adam Thielen could end up in 2023. One connection that is expected to happen is Aaron Rodgers ending up in New York. As of this writing, it hasn’t happened, but if it does, many expect Thielen to follow suit. Why? Because apparently, Aaron Rodgers and Adam Thielen are buds.

Apparently, after years of playing against each other, Thielen and Rodgers have formed a friendship. Not sure if this means they are hanging out in each other’s garages on the weekend sipping brews while watching a PGA championship or not, but worst case, the two have formed a mutual respect for one another.

So if they are truly friends or even just a couple of dudes who respect each others’ games, it does make sense that they may want to join forces in a new environment. The thing about this is that if Rodgers wants Thielen and the Jets end up giving up a first-round pick and investing a lot of money in their new quarterback, they are likely going to listen to him.

Rodgers, paired with Garrett Wilson, Corey Davis, Elijah Moore, and Thielen, has the potential to be a potent offensive attack. Obviously, the first domino has to fall for this to become a reality, but it is very much in the realm of possibility that Thielen and Rodgers end up on the same team.
