Nobody is sure what is going on with Aaron Rodgers but speculation is at an all-time high, as many believe he’ll be traded to the New York Jets.
Especially now after reports surface of the front office pursuing one of Rodgers’ teammates on the Green Bay Packers.
According to Adam Schefter, the Jets are currently trying to sign veteran wide receiver Allan Lazard. He’s been a favorite pass option for Aaron Rodgers over the years. So it’s easy for fans to make the connection.

With that said, Lazard might not be the only Packers player New York is pursuing, as Pro Football Reference claims, “Rodgers is involved in trying to persuade one or more free agents to join the Jets.”
“Rodgers is involved in trying to recruit one or more free agents to the Jets”…
…while being under contract with the Packers.
Now THAT is tampering or illegal in some way. 🤣🤣🤣

This is a wild situation that’s only getting crazier. And it will continue to escalate until Aaron Rodgers makes his decision. In the end, fans can’t help but connect all of the dots.

Doesn’t New York have enough wide receivers already?
Elijah Moore, Corey Davis, Garrett Wilson, Denzel Mims….Hmmm, why would they sign Allen Lazard? Might as well start clearing space for Randall Cobb and Robert Tonyan.

Lazard might just be following his quarterback.
Bro is following Rodgers

Hopefully, an official announcement is made soon because I don’t know how much longer Jets fans can put up with this stuff.
