Conflicting reports on completed trade sending Aaron Rodgers to Jets
The blockbuster trade that would send future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets is reportedly a “done” deal, according to Trey Wingo.
Wingo first reported the conversations taking place between Rodgers and the Jets last week.
But Wingo is out there on his own.
Appearing live on NFL Network following the report, insider Ian Rapoport said a deal is “not done” and “nothing has happened,” refuting Wingo’s report. Colleague Mike Garafolo’s reporting echoed Rapoport’s during the same NFL Network segment.
The wait continues.
A completed trade between the Jets and Packers ending Rodgers’ 18-year run in Green Bay would mirror the trade that once ended Brett Favre’s career with the franchise in 2008.
It’s unclear what compensation would be coming to the Packers or how the two teams adjusted Rodgers’ contract to make it all work.
A trade of Rodgers would clear the path for Jordan Love to be the Packers’ new starting quarterback in 2023.
