The Green Bay Packers trading Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets has seemed like a done deal for quite some time 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. A recent reported indicated that it may be “now or never” for the Rodgers-to-Jets trade to actually happen.
“If Aaron Rodgers Isn’t Traded By The 2023 NFL Draft, He Won’t Be Traded At All”
On Monday’s edition of The Carton Show, Carton told his co-host, former Packers receiver Greg Jennings, if Rodgers is not traded to the Jets before the 2023 NFL Draft, “He will not be a New York Jet. He won’t be.”
According to Carton, the Packers-Jets trade would have been done two weeks ago if it were up to Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst. That’s when Packers President Mark Murphy allegedly intervened and “in-fighting” ensued.
Many signs are pointing to draft day being the day that Aaron Rodgers is actually traded. For nearly a month now fans and analysts have debated on who has more leverage in the trade talks. At the end of the day, the Green Bay Packers would love to get 2023 draft picks for Aaron Rodgers, however, it would not cripple them if they received 2024 draft picks instead. The Jets, on the other hand, want Aaron Rodgers in house as soon as possible. Getting acquainted with the coaching staff, play book, teammates, and more are all necessities for the Jets to be successful in 2023. None of that can start happening until the trade is finalized.
