The Green Bay Packers and New York Jets have not been able to come to terms on an Aaron Rodgers trade yet. While there are a wide variety of reports and rumors regarding the reason(s) for the holdup, there is little doubt that a deal will get done eventually. While fans of both teams would have liked to have put this chapter of the Rodgers Saga behind them by now, NFL Insider Albert Breer indicated that it may take until after the first round of the NFL Draft for it to be finalized.
Albert Breer Believes an Aaron Rodgers Trade Will Happen Before or During the Second Round
In his most recent mailbag article, Breer wrote:
“From Antonio (@Antoniooo_92): Odds on Rodgers trade happening during the draft?
“Antonio, I’d say because a foundational piece of the trade will be the 42nd or 43rd pick, chances are very high that Rodgers will become a Jet between now and early Friday night.
“This thing has been close for a few weeks now. And like I’ve said, at this point, it comes down to the people signing the checks. … Both teams, by the way, and the bosses who were there (Woody Johnson and Mark Murphy) are marked by the Brett Favre experience of 2008, one in which the Jets felt like they were used as a way station for Favre to get to Minnesota, while the Packers felt like they got played by their Hall of Fame quarterback.
“So eventually, both will have to get past that. … Either way, this should be done for now. The fact that it isn’t shows that history does matter in a transaction as big as this one.”
Of course, it is entirely possible that the Packers and Jets come to an agreement before the NFL Draft. As Breer notes, “between now and early Friday night.”
However, the “Friday night” he references is next week Friday, the second day of the NFL Draft. Since the Jets’ have two second round picks and the Packers reportedly want one (or both) of them, it makes sense that both teams could let negotiations go until that night. Bettors from around the world such as those at promocje bukmacherskie are assuming this deal gets done.
It would be nice if they got it done earlier, but the Packers need to make sure they get at least something in this draft.

Aaron Rogers is beyond a doubt the classic psycho narcissist. He checks all the boxes of what a self loving with a God complex, selfish, will never accept any accountability with all his failed relationships, it’s your fault never his, type of person.. This is basically a divorce between Rogers and the entire GB franchise and all the Wis GB Packer fans. He needs to punish us because we see through all his dramatic BS and called him out on it. He won’t make a decision until the Packers have suffered as much damage as possible, only then will the selfish primadonna come out of his black whatever place and make a decision. I feel for you Jet fans already and the Jets team. Wis created a beer named: Cry Baby 12.. What does that tell ya? My suggestion would be, for the Packers to keep the cry baby diva, and park him on the bench the entire season. Then fine him 2 million each game if he doesn’t show up including practices. And just a little question for the GB offensive line if GB keeps CB 12. Do you really need to block and protect Cry Baby 12? He doesn’t care about you one bit, but he expects you to care about him. The season can’t get any worse as it did this past season. Good luck Jets if you take on this head case narcissist, you’ll need it.
Hurry up and get rid of that Worthless Crybaby piece of crap. His ego Sucks. He thinks he’s great and he Sucks.
