Based on the NFL’s criteria, the New York Jets have, at worst, a one-in-four chance to host this year’s version of HBO’s hit reality television series Hard Knocks.
But if the Jets actually land quarterback Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers, the franchise would seem like a no-brainer selection.
Thus, it’s no surprise that Odds Shark lists the Jets as a significant favorite to entertain NFL fans this offseason. The Jets are listed with odds of -325. The Chicago Bears are listed as the next favorite at +475, followed by the New Orleans Saints at +500 and the Washington Commanders at +1100.

The Jets have had a dramatic offseason, keeping former No. 2 overall draft pick Zach Wilson on the roster but looking for a veteran to start ahead of him at quarterback. It looks like that will be Rodgers, who stated publicly that he intends to play for the Jets, although a deal has not yet made the transaction official.
The Jets have also signed a few new weapons for Rodgers in Allen Lazard and Mecole Hardman, and they’ve been linked to Odell Beckham Jr., as well.
Further bolstering the Jets’ case is the fact that Bears chairman George McCaskey said his team is not interested in being on Hard Knocks at last week’s NFL owners meetings.
The NFL has stipulated that the reality show, which premiered in 2001, not follow a team that has been on the show within the past 10 years, that has a new coach or that has made the playoffs within the past two seasons. The Jets have been featured once before, in 2010.
Getting a first look at Rodgers with his new team should make this one of the most anticipated seasons ever, should that come to fruition.
