Aaron Rodgers may be on his way out of Green Bay. A pending trade between the Green Bay Packers and New York Jets seems to be in the works. That being said, Aaron Rodgers seems to already be garnering agreements in the local New York area. Rodgers has apparently already been visiting New York and making connections along the way.
Aaron Rodgers Already Has One Agreement In Place In New York
According to Colin Gallant of Clutch Points:
The recruiting of Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers continues, and this time, it’s for something completely unrelated to football. The potential New York Jet hasn’t officially been announced in a trade, but he’s already landed an “impossible-to-get reservation at the oracle of orecchiette, Rao’s,” according to Dean Balsamini of the New York Post.
The restaurant has already hosted famous athletes including Phil Simms, Joe Montana, Boomer Esiason and Peyton Manning; the latter celebrated his second Super Bowl ring at Rao’s with brother Eli in Feb. 2016.
The 39-year-old Rodgers has already made it clear that he intends to play for the Jets in 2023, and it seems like New York is already rolling out the welcome mat.
“He’s been here four or five times. I’d love to see him more,” Rao’s owner Benjamin Prelvukaj told The New York Post. “He loves the ribeye — and tips well.”
The owner of the East Pole in NYC, Tom Marignetti, agrees: “He’s a cool dude…He’s the kind of guy you’d want to have a drink with. Compared to Wisconsin, he’s going to have a ball in New York City.”
It seems like only a matter of time before Aaron Rodgers is wearing New York Jets colors, but the trade is tricky as the Packers reportedly want an “unreasonable” haul for the former MVP and Super Bowl champion.
If and when Rodgers to NYC is confirmed, it looks like he already has fans, and a historically impossible reservation at one of the more coveted Italian restaurants in the city.
Aaron Rodgers seems to certainly be preparing himself for a move to New York. As trade talks continue between the New York Jets and Green Bay Packers, it only seems like a matter of time before the four-time MVP is wearing a different shade of green next year. Aaron Rodgers also took the time to praise some local Green Bay businesses before he is officially traded.

Lmao. Comapired to Wisconsin he has a extra hour to get the 5 miles to job, 90% more of a chance to be assaulted or killed by robbers (even with the bodyguard he will need, 100% less chance of seeing anything looking like nature, paying 20 times more for a much smaller apartment then his mansion etc etc………. All so he can eat at a overpriced Italian restaurant. Look I love Roger’s as he was the best I ever saw play the game but from the second he signed his extension he was no longer all in on the packers and did everything he could to hurt there future.
