The Green Bay Packers have moved on from a few quarterbacks over the last few seasons. Of course, Aaron Rodgers is far and away the most notable as the Packers traded the four-time MVP to the Jets this past off-season.
However, there were a few other quarterbacks the Packers moved on from over the last few seasons, and now one is getting his opportunity to start.
Former Green Bay Packers Quarterback Tim Boyle Gets Starting Job For The New York Jets
Jordan Sigler of Wisconsin Sports Heroics originally reported it for our site:
According to Ian Rapoport with the NFL Network, the Jets are turning to Boyle to start against the Miami Dolphins.
The Jets will ask Boyle to keep the Jets playoff hopes afloat until Aaron Rodgers can return. The Jets are hopeful Rodgers can return by their Dec. 24th game against the Washington Commanders.
But for Rodgers to have a chance, Boyle will have to play better this next month than he did against the Bills.
Jets head coach Robert Saleh benched Wilson after a terrible start against the Bills. Former Packers quarterback Tim Boyle came in the game for Wilson. Unfortunately for Boyle, he didn’t play much better than Wilson. Boyle finished 7/14 for 33 yards and one interception.
Packers Fans React To Boyle Getting His Opportunity With The Jets
Boyle spent two seasons with the Packers (2019-2020). During those two season he appeared in 11 games. While he never made a big impact in Green Bay, fans certainly reacted when they saw Boyle get his opportunity:
the Tim Boyle snaps should count toward the 65%

It will certainly be interesting to see if Boyle can resurrect the Jets’ season and proves he belongs in this league. Boyle has started three games in his career (all in 2021) and went 0-3 in those games.
