Aaron Rodgers will likely be a member of the New York Jets in 2023. The pending trade between the Green Bay Packers and New York Jets will likely get done sometime between now and the next few months. It has been over three weeks since Aaron Rodgers declared he intends to play for the New York Jets in 2023. However, with seemingly no progress toward that trade actually happening, multiple other teams have reportedly entered the mix for the four-time MVP quarterback.
That being said, it would be fairly surprising if the Green Bay Packers chose to trade him anywhere else. Allen Lazard and Nathaniel Hackett are already in New York, and Aaron Rodgers has been vocal about other players he would like to team up with. Today, however, he lost one of those sought-after teammates.
Odell Beckham Jr. Signs With The Baltimore Ravens
According to a report:
Free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has reportedly agreed to a one-year contract worth up to $18 million, according to Ian Rapoport, Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
Beckham confirmed the agreement on his Instagram account.
The New York Giants selected Beckham with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft. He proceeded to average 96 receptions and 1,374 receiving yards over his first three years, scoring 35 touchdowns along the way.
His fourth season ended prematurely after he suffered a fractured left ankle in Week 5 versus the Los Angeles Chargers.
The 30-year-old returned in 2018 and had 77 catches for 1,052 yards and six scores. Prior to the season, he signed a five-year, $90 contract extension with the team.
Many recent reports claimed the New York Jets were the strong favorite to land the top receiver left on the market. However a pair of news bits this week confirmed that fact, but with a caveat.
First, ESPN NFL insider Dan Graziano reported that “Beckham Jr. has offers on the table from multiple teams, and I am told the Jets are the most likely landing spot but that Beckham could be waiting to make sure the Aaron Rodgers deal gets completed before finalizing his own decision.” Aaron Rodgers has been vocal in the past about wanting to team up with Odell Beckham Jr. This one might sting a bit for the four time MVP quarterback.
