The Drama Continues…..
We all thought after Aaron Rodgers said he wanted to be a Jet things would get done, but that is not the case.
According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, the Packers still want a second-round pick in 2023 and a first-round pick in 2024 for the quarterback the Packers no longer want on the team. He said this on the Wilde and Tausch show.
Robinson added that the Packers are also willing to give a 2025 draft pick back to the Jets, if Rodgers retires after the 2023 season.
Do you think the Packers would be crazy enough to hold out? I am not sure what is going on right now with the Packers and Aaron Rodgers, but they obviously want a first round pick because if they wanted to truly just give him away they would have done that.
I think they do hold the leverage at the moment, and the draft is looming. The Jets would be crazy to not do something if they want Rodgers. They may be forced to give up the first to get him.
