Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jets seem to have a mutual interest for 2023. The four-time MVP admitted that he intends to play for the Jets in 2023. The Jets have openly admitted they would give up a lot in order to obtain the future Hall Of Famer. Now that it has been made public that the trade is likely to happen, the Green Bay Packers seem to be standing firm on what they want in return. At a minimum, the Packers want a first-round pick, something the New York Jets don’t seem to be willing to offer. However, one recent report shows the Jets may be preparing to better their offer.
New York Jets Trade Indicates Possible Compensation For Aaron Rodgers
Wide receiver Elijah Moore found himself with a new home in the NFL. The New York Jets agreed to trade the third-year wide receiver to the Cleveland Browns, the Browns announced. As for the compensation, New York will receive the No. 42 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft in exchange for Moore while also sending No. 74 overall back to Cleveland.
Moore’s time in New York seemed to be coming to an end. Moore even requested a trade at the deadline last year. He stated that he wasn’t getting the ball enough. Additional details that were released revealed a disgruntled and frustrated young player that had a profane outburst at Jets offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur.
With two years still on his rookie deal, Elijah Moore will count for less than $2.5 million against the cap in 2023 and still be under contract through the 2024 season. That was a big reason Packers fans wanted Moore in Green Bay. However, it may not be all bad news for Packers fans after this trade took place. The compensation the Jets received could end up going to Green Bay. Currently the Jets have three picks in the first two rounds:
- Round 1, Pick 13
- Round 2, Pick 42 (From CLV)
- Round 2, Pick 43
It is possible New York made the move in an attempt to amass the draft capital needed to secure Aaron Rodgers.

The jets and everyone else expect the packers to just give Rodgers away. At 40, he’s still one of the top 5 quarterbacks in the league. Green Bay should be asking a lot. At least a first and a second. No discussion on that. Rodgers is the blame for not coming back to GB. He says they didn’t want him. They were just tired of his antics. He knew what he wanted to do all along. It’s called playing games. He’ll regret going there. I think the fans in Green Bay have a big taste of sourness in there throats. Good luck Rodgers and good riddance.
