Aaron Rodgers will be a New York Jet in the next NFL season, as the Jets and Green Bay Packers reportedly came to terms on Monday to move the four-time NFL MVP QB to New York.
ESPN first reported the Jets will receive Rodgers, the No. 15 overall pick and a fifth-round pick in 2023. The Packers will get the No. 13 overall pick, a second-round pick and a sixth-round pick this year, and a conditional 2024 second-round pick that becomes a first-rounder if Rodgers plays 65% of the plays during the upcoming season.
Jets legend Joe Namath has given Rodgers his blessing to wear his retired No. 12 jersey, but it is believed Rodgers will wear 8, the number he wore in college at California.
The Jets now have a future Hall-of-Famer at quarterback and their fans are already talking about the Super Bowl.
There are insider reports that the Jets brass flew out to Malibu a few weeks ago to meet with Rodgers, and whatever they said about playing in New York worked as Rodgers announced on “The Pat McAfee Show” on YouTube on March 15 his intention to play for the Jets in 2023.
