The Green Bay Packers got incredible news today as the trade talks for Aaron Rodgers continue. Everyone is aware that the New York Jets have not only been the front runners to sign Aaron Rodgers this entire off-season, but they’re the team that Aaron Rodgers publicly announced he wants to play for in 2023. However, that was nearly three weeks ago and there have been no reports of that trade progressing. That being said, multiple teams have surfaced as possible suitors for the four-time MVP quarterback. That is music to the Green Bay Packers ears.
Multiple Teams Surface As “Late Runners” For Aaron Rodgers
San Francisco 49ers:
The 49ers are preparing to make a run at Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers. All signs have pointed to Rodgers eventually being traded to the New York Jets, but the 49ers are ready to pounce should that not come to fruition. Carton shared that San Francisco has made two third-round picks in the 2023 NFL Draft and a first-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft available in a trade.
New England Patriots:
The New England Patriots have called about the availability regarding the four-time MVP quarterback. This isn’t far-fetched from a fit standpoint. Bill Belichick has long been a fan of Rodgers and would love to have him as his quarterback. He has reportedly been shopping Mac Jones so he isn’t settled on the starter. The Patriots also own the 14th overall pick in the draft which would be perfect compensation along with some future assets. Belichick is likely in the twilight of his career and will not care as much about the long-term future of the team. It is an intriguing storyline to keep an eye on.
This Is A Disaster For The New York Jets
More than likely, this is the Green Bay Packers leaking this news to put pressure on the Jets to cough up more assets. This is a strategy many teams use to try and get more for a player. However, if the Patriots are serious it could mean disaster for the Jets. It would be a catastrophe if Rodgers ended up going to a hated rival because the general manager wouldn’t give up the required draft capital and Belichick would. Belichick loves to troll the Jets and this would be the ultimate slap in the face.
This could also instigate a bidding war between possibly three teams for Aaron Rodgers. That could land more assets, draft picks, or players for the Green Bay Packers. It was starting to get surprising that only one team in the NFL was reportedly seriously interested in Aaron Rodgers, that no longer seems to be the case.
