The New York Jets have been trying to land Aaron Rodgers in a trade for over a month now. Aaron Rodgers declared that he intends to play for the New York Jets in 2023 in mid-March. However, with seemingly no progress toward that trade actually happening, multiple other teams have reportedly entered the mix for the four-time MVP quarterback. In a recent trade proposal, one of those teams could offer a massive haul for the future hall of fame quarterback.
Tennessee Titans Land Aaron Rodgers In Latest Trade Proposal
Tennessee Titans Receive:
- QB Aaron Rodgers
- 2023 Fourth-Round Draft Pick (No. 116)
Green Bay Packers Receive:
- Defensive Tackle Jeffery Simmons
- 2023 Fifth-Round Draft Pick (No. 149)
- 2024 Third-Round Draft Pick
This deal has a lot of moving pieces, and on the surface, it looks weird on both sides. But for financial purposes, this deal could definitely see itself added to the proposal table.
For the Packers, they are able to move on from Rodgers while bringing in a top-5 defensive tackle option to pair with Kenny Clark. While Jeffery Simmons will need a new contract after the 2023 season, Green Bay would be able to make this work (with some moves), securing a defensive building block for the future.
For the Titans, giving up one of the best interior defenders in the league would be a tough pill to swallow. But if you combine moving Simmons to Green Bay, releasing or trading Tannehill off the books, and making a few other cost-saving moves, you have the makings of a team that is able to integrate Rodgers into their offense.
This deal doesn’t seem all that likely, especially for a GM like Carthon who is very new on the job, but if he wants to make a lasting impression and turn this team around immediately, this is how he would get it done – fast.
This trade would be massive for the Green Bay Packers defense.
