Jets players who have claimed Aaron Rodgers as teammates are starting to celebrate.
Wide receiver Garrett Wilson and running back Breece Hall took to Twitter Monday afternoon to celebrate the fact that Rodgers could be the Jets’ next quarterback.
“Y’all gonna see this smile on me,” Wilson tweeted with a teary emoji.

“I can finally enjoy my vacation now,” he wrote in a separate tweet.
Hall tweeted moments later, “The head of cheese did it,” referring to the fire in which Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner burned an actual head of cheese.
The Jets players’ reactions followed a tweet from Trey Wingo, who announced, “Rodgers is done listening to the Jets. History is about to repeat itself between New York and Green Bay. Time really is a flat circle.”

However, there is no confirmation that Rodgers has made his final decision.
And Adam Schefter said Monday afternoon on ESPN that there are “indicative signs” that Rodgers will be a Jet, noting that the quarterback has not told the Jets or Packers that news.
It’s unclear whether Jets players are aware of information not yet public or were reacting to Wingo’s tweet.

If Rodgers isn’t done with the Jets, this moment in social media history could be likened to a player celebrating prematurely before reaching the end zone, only to squish the ball before the end of the score.
If the Jets don’t land Rodgers, their options at quarterback are dwindling.
