The potential trade of Aaron Rodgers has been a hot topic in the NFL community ever since the reigning MVP expressed his desire to join the New York Jets last week. Now, as the NFL offseason continues, there seems to be some new developments regarding Rodgers’ potential landing spot.

According to ESPN Reporter Adam Schefter, the New York Jets and Green Bay Packers have not been communicating much regarding the Rodgers trade over the past week. Schefter added that the Packers are looking for a first-round pick and more in exchange for the superstar quarterback.

It isn’t fully clear at this time whether the Jets will ultimately give Green Bay what they’re asking, but Schefter commented that: “They’re not trying to meet Green Bay’s price.”

Additionally, Schefter clarified that the Jets’ recent acquisition of wide receiver Elijah Moore from the Cleveland Browns has little to do with their potential pursuit of Rodgers. Rather, the Jets signed former Kansas City Chiefs receiver Mecole Hardman in free agency and wanted to add draft pick value to their team.

As the NFL offseason progresses, it remains to be seen whether the Jets will be willing to meet Green Bay’s asking price for Rodgers. However, with the quarterback expressing interest in playing in New York, it is clear that there is some potential for a deal to be made.

Fans of both teams will be eagerly watching to see how the situation develops in the coming weeks and months, as the fate of one of the NFL’s biggest stars hangs in the balance.
