Breece Hall believes there will be a return of the Rodgers Jets this season
Jets running back Breece Hall joined in Rich Eisen continues “The Rich Eisen Show” this week and was asked if you think he is [Rodgers] Come back?
“Yeah, I don’t think there’s any doubt. Of course we would like to have him back, but ultimately it’s up to him and his rehab process. We hope for the best that we get him back, but he still has to go through it, just like me [rehab]. Me and him talked about the rehab and how everything went and so on. Of course I’m happy to have him back, but at the end of the day it’s all up to him.”
Eisen made it clear that he wasn’t trying to trick Hall into answering to make him think Wilson wasn’t good enough. He just wanted to know, in his heart of hearts, whether he believed Rodgers would be back this season.
“I don’t think he’s too competitive. As I said, it will be good to get him back, but I’m excited to see how Zach does [Wilson] also grows. The two of them together, they push each other, they have a great time together and it was cool to see how the two compare to each other. They pick each other’s brains. Aaron can challenge Zach and Zach can challenge Aaron a little. I’m happy for both of them.”
