Aaron Rodgers is already paying dividends for the New York Jets.

New season ticket and suite sales for the Jets so far this offseason are up 400% compared to all of last year, Sportico reports. While the Green Bay Packers finalized its trade to send Rodgers to the Jets on April 24, the Jets saw a 250% increase in new ticket sales since March 15, when the star quarterback said he wanted to be traded to the Jets on the Pat McAfee Show.

Jets owner Woody Johnson posted a video Monday on Twitter saying the team office’s “season ticket bell has been going crazy the last few days” as staffers secure sales.

The Jets have also become a priority for national TV spots since acquiring the future Hall of Fame quarterback. Rodgers could spur the Jets to play six games broadcasted in prime time this upcoming season after the team was featured in just one nationally televised game last season. 

Rodgers has also fueled a surge in Jets jersey and apparel sales. According to the report, E-commerce sales for the Jets team store from Fanatics jumped more than $1.2 million in the first 48 hours of the Rodgers trade.

After wearing No. 12 with the Packers, Rodgers will switch to donning No. 8 for the Jets this season, which was his old college number at Cal. No. 12 was retired by the Jets in 1985 to honor Joe Namath, the franchise’s only Super Bowl-winning quarterback.
