The New York Jets have signed veteran quarterback Tim Boyle to a one-year contract.

The Jets have yet to complete a trade for Aaron Rodgers, who Boyle backed up at times with the Green Bay Packers.

Boyle spent three seasons with the Packers, making the team in 2018 as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Kentucky.

"He's just a special guy," Rodgers told reporters in 2021, when Boyle was preparing for his first career start as a member of the Detroit Lions. "I watched him grow and develop over the years with us, not just as a person, but as a player. He's got a big-time arm, and he's very athletic, as well."
