The Green Bay Packers have been trying to trade Aaron Rodgers for nearly a month now. 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. That being said, the packers are standing firm on what they want for Aaron Rodgers.
Green Bay Packers Want Guarantees In Aaron Rodgers Trade
According to a Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports:
While appearing on Wilde & Tausch on Wednesday, April 12, Robinson revealed that the Packers are asking for a second-round pick in 2023 along with a guaranteed first-round pick in 2024 in order to send Rodgers to New York.
Additional Details On Aaron Rodgers To The Jets:
The asking price for Rodgers wasn’t the only thing that Robinson shared, with the senior NFL reporter providing some additional interesting details as to why it’s taking so long for a trade to get done.
While Gutekunst wants guaranteed compensation in 2024, the Green Bay Packers general manager is willing to concede giving draft capital back to the Jets in 2025 if Aaron Rodgers retires after this upcoming season, according to Robinson. However, Jets owner Woody Johnson does not want the team to give up a first-round pick in exchange for a short-term lease on an aging quarterback.
The Packers standing firm on a first round draft pick is far from what has recently been reported. With the New York Jets trading away WR Elijah Moore for a second round pick, many thought the Jets’ multiple second round picks would go to Green Bay for Aaron Rodgers. This recent report suggests that might not be good enough for the four-time MVP quarterback.
