Jets fans are buzzing with excitement after a recent comment from Jets General Manager Joe Douglas at a WFAN event in New York.

When asked by host Boomer Esiason if Aaron Rodgers was coming to the Jets, Douglas responded with enthusiasm, saying, “He’s gonna be here! he’s going to get here eventually baby.”

The comment sent the crowd into a frenzy, with fans eager for any updates on the potential Rodgers trade. As previously reported, the Jets and Packers have been in talks for weeks, with Rodgers expressing his desire to leave Green Bay and play for the Jets this season.

Rodgers has already publicly stated his intention to play for the Jets this season, but negotiations between the two teams have hit a snag over compensation. Reportedly, a proposed deal would see the Jets sending two second-round draft picks to the Packers, with the possibility of one of those picks becoming a first-round pick if the team makes a deep playoff run.

However, the Jets are insisting on receiving a draft pick from the Packers in the event that Rodgers retires after the 2023 season. This has led to some tension between the two teams, but the two sides are still working to finalize the deal.

Despite the holdup, Jets fans are hopeful that the trade will eventually go through, as they believe that Rodgers could be the missing piece that leads the team to success. With training camp just a few months away, fans will be eagerly awaiting any updates on the Rodgers trade and the Jets’ plans for the upcoming season.
