Green Bay Packers ‘introduction’ for Aaron Rodgers trade with team ‘happy to pay him’
The Green Bay Packers would reportedly have a deal with Aaron Rodgers if they were offered at least two first-round picks.
The four-time NFL MVP, 39, is believed to be reassessing his future at Green Bay after failing to qualify for this year’s playoffs.
Despite winning 4-8 in the first 12 weeks of the 2022 NFL season, the Packers had a chance to reach the postseason with a home win over the Detroit Lions in Week 18.
However, Green Bay lost their poise in the regular season finale and Detroit exited Lambeau Field in a 20–16 win.
Post-game, Rodgers fueled rumors of his possible exit, refusing to swap shirts with Lions rookie Jameson Williams.
“I’m going to stick with this one,” he told Williams.
The QB later said he could still send a jersey to the wide receiver, “but there are some special ones that I’d like to keep.”
Since then, Rodgers has been noncommittal when asked about returning to Green Bay for another year.
NFL Insider Adam Scherter recently reported that the possibility of the 10-time Pro Bowl quarterback leaving the Packers after 18 years is “very real.”
And NBC sportscaster Peter King has claimed that the franchise “would like to have at least two first-round picks” to consider trading in the NFL legend.
King adds that New York Jets owner Woody Johnson “would be happy to pay for that freight, I guess.”
The Jets are expected to go after a veteran quarterback in 2022 following Zach Wilson’s nightmare performance.
But New York is currently more than $2 million over the salary cap, meaning the team’s front office will likely have to release some money before they can bring in a new star.
