The trade of Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets can still drag on a bit. Because according to a report, the Packers currently want too much for the 39-year-old.
Aaron Rodgers has made it clear he wants to go to the New York Jets. The Jets are already granting the quarterback superstar his first personnel wishes. The Green Bay Packers want to move on without Rodgers, but are holding up the whole move anyway.
They apparently want to get the most out of the mega-trade.
As “ProFootballTalk” reports, the Packers are calling up a lot for the 39-year-old, too much currently for the Jets’ liking.
Green Bay Packers: another pick for 2025?
According to the report, the Packers want at least a first-round pick as part of the base deal to trade their longtime playmaker. And gladly another pick for the 2025 draft, sort of as a bonus if Rodgers is still playing in 2024.
These demands seem to be dividing opinion at the moment, “ProFootballTalk” for example thinks the Packers should accept two second-round picks in 2023 and 2024 if that’s what the Jets should offer.
After all, Rodgers may be a Packers legend, but he’s also just one the franchise didn’t plan on using again. In some media reports, a player in addition to draft picks is also part of the package that has yet to be negotiated. Or is Rodgers worth more?
But the Jets basically don’t have to rush either. In theory, all that’s needed is for Rodgers to join the “Gang Green” for training camp.
