New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers will start in the team’s final preseason game on Aug. 26 against the New York Giants, a source told Brian Coz of the New York Post.

Head coach Robert Saleh said after Saturday’s contest versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that he’d speak with Rodgers about potentially playing against the Giants, per Coz.

“I wouldn’t mind playing in the preseason,” Rodgers said early in training camp. “I wouldn’t mind if Robert (Saleh) said, ‘Hey, we are going to go. Let’s do it.’ Most coaches have that fear where they want to get you to the Week 1 and not risk it, but I believe there is a chance for the last one.”


Rodgers spent the previous 18 seasons with the Green Bay Packers before the Jets acquired him in a trade this offseason. The four-time MVP has a 147-75-1 record in 223 career starts.

The Jets open their season on Sept. 11 against the Buffalo Bills.
