New York Jets owner seems to think Aaron Rodgers is already on the team

There is intense speculation that the Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be traded to the New York Jets before the 2023 NFL Draft. Rodgers has expressed his desire to move to the Jets, and talks between the two teams are ongoing. However, a trade deal has yet to be confirmed.

Despite this, the Jets owner, Woody Johnson, seems to believe that Rodgers is already part of the team. His comments have caused confusion among NFL fans, as there has been no official trade announcement.

Reports suggest that the Packers and Jets are currently negotiating over potential compensation for Rodgers. Packers General Manager, Brian Gutekunst, has confirmed that all options are on the table concerning their quarterback situation.

It appears increasingly likely that Rodgers will join the Jets, as Gutekunst’s recent comments suggest that the Packers have been forced to consider a trade due to their inability to communicate with Rodgers.

Aaron Rodgers would be a significant upgrade over Zach Wilson, who has struggled in his rookie season with the Jets. Rodgers’ impressive statistics speak for themselves, and his addition to the team could be a game-changer.

Reports have indicated that the Packers demand a first-round pick and additional compensation for Rodgers, but the Jets have pushed back against this. However, their recent acquisition of a second-round selection in the Elijah Moore trade with the Cleveland Browns could help facilitate an exchange. The Jets now have two second-round picks, which they could offer along with a conditional early-round selection in 2024.

The Jets need to handle this situation carefully and avoid any potential penalties under the NFL tampering policy. Despite Woody Johnson’s excitement, the fact remains that Rodgers is still under contract with another team, and the Jets need to proceed with caution in their pursuit of him.
