Aaron Rodgers trades the Packers for the Jets


Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, considered one of the great stars of the American NFL, will no longer play for the Green Bay Packers and will play for the New York Jets next season, the franchise he wanted to go to.

“Green Bay and New York are finalizing a trade to send the four-time NFL Most Valuable Player to the Jets, NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported Monday,” the league website said.

Thus, the Jets get Rodgers, the Packers’ 2023 first-round pick (number 15) and a fifth-round pick (170) in exchange for New York’s 2023 first-round pick (13), the 2023 second-round picks (42) and sixth-round picks (207), as well as a conditional 2024 second-round pick that could become the first if the quarterback participates in at least 65 percent of the snaps in his season. new team in the next campaign.

“There are still things that need to be done. It’s not finished, but we expect it to be ready in the next few days,” Packers general manager Brian Gutenkunst said Monday at Green Bay’s pre-draft news conference.

Rodgers assured last March that his wish was to play for the Jets in 2023 and thus end 18 seasons with the Packers, where he started with Brett Favre’s backup and then ended up as one of the best in the NFL in his position, despite having only one Super Bowl, the only one he played, in 2011, to his credit and despite having been chosen ‘MVP’ in 2011, 2014, 2020 and 2021.

Now, the one from xxx joins some Jets who hope to be protagonists next season as the ‘quarterback’ joins other arrivals such as Sauce Gardner, Garrett Wilson, Breece Hall and Jermaine Johnson.
