The New York Jets want Aaron Rodgers
The New York Jets are about to be a popular subject on Super Bowl Sunday. The Jets didn’t make the playoffs but easily grabbed the biggest NFL story outside of the game Sunday night. The Jets officially reached out to the Green Bay Packers regarding a trade that would fly Aaron Rodgers to New York. Fans immediately had opinions on the possibility.
There had been speculation about Rodgers being traded since the Packers’ season ended in Week 18. The two leading teams discussed as having an interest in Rodgers were the Jets and Las Vegas Raiders. Raiders players started the recruiting gambit. The Jets brass is making the first official move. Any talk that takes place now is hypothetical between the Packers and Jets front offices. Rodgers hasn’t decided on coming back to play football in 2023.
NFL World reacts
Comments came flying in hot on Super Bowl Sunday after Jeremy Fowler reported the news about the Jets trying to land Rodgers. Here are the best takes on Twitter about Rodgers potentially becoming a Jet.
Cool beans, this is fun because it's actual info. Now, the Packers probably said "we can't tell you anything because we're waiting on Aaron to make up his mind," but it's still fun, still real news, and it would confirm NYJ as a potential bidder. https://t.co/vp6uvpb4wD

Rodgers is Plan A. Everything else is Plan B. If Rodgers wants to win because he has to go to an AFC team, the Jets are his best chance to do it. https://t.co/Ruxw374SAQ

Feel like if Aaron Rodgers comes out of the darkness and says I’m good with a trade to the Jets, he’ll be a Jet sooner rather than later🤷 https://t.co/GDecwHTSNx

He's sitting in a diaper in a pitch black room with a cell phone he smuggled in his jail wallet making deals. This is his art of contemplation https://t.co/RW6KHZzCCH
