Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers could be on the brink of a massive trade. Reports have been all over the place when it comes to the possible looming trade. Mark Murphy was recently quoted saying “the team will honor a trade request from Aaron Rodgers if he wants it.” That report was followed up with a report that a deal is essentially done between the Packers and the Jets. All the two sides were waiting for was to see if Aaron Rodgers would sign off on it. This was reported by nearly every credible sports news source. But, as often is the case with Aaron Rodgers, credible news sources don’t always have it correct.
Green Bay Packers And New York Jets Have Yet To Agree On Trade Terms
This morning Tom Pelissero reported that everything is essentially still on the table for Rodgers as both sides wait to hear his plan.
“Despite a report to the contrary, the Packers and Jets have not agreed to the framework of an Aaron Rodgers trade, per sources. Both sides continue to await word from Rodgers on his plans. If he decides he wants to go to New York, then the teams will work to hammer out a deal.”
This would meant that if Aaron Rodgers is in-fact open to playing for the Jets, New York and Green Bay will still have to agree to the framework of the trade. Much talk has happened regarding Aaron Rodgers’ contract. The New York Jets don’t necessarily want to cover his entire contract, meaning the Packers will need to take on some of his contact in the trade. However, the Green Bay Packers could potentially seek more draft capital in return if they take on his contract.
