In a surprising development, it has been reported that the Green Bay Packers have apparently allowed quarterback Aaron Rodgers to speak to the New York Jets, and Rodgers is said to be open to the idea of joining the team.

This news broke by media personality Trey Wingo, and it is a significant move by Green Bay, indicating that they are open to moving on from their star QB.

This comes on the back of another notable move in the offseason, with quarterback free-agent Derek Carr signing with the New Orleans Saints earlier on Monday. Carr was reportedly the Jets’ second option, leaving them with a massive void to fill at quarterback if they are unable to land Rodgers.

Former Jets legend, Joe Namath, previously said he’d be willing to give up #12 if it meant Aaron Rodgers would sign with the Jets.

Next For Green Bay

Rodgers has spent almost 20 years with the Green Bay Packers, and his departure would be a massive change for the franchise. While he has not yet made a final decision on his 2023 season, he may still opt to try to return to the Packers instead of being traded or simply retire.

If Rodgers does leave Green Bay, it will be interesting to see how the Packers perform with 2020 1st round pick Jordan Love. The team has a number of talented players on their roster, but they will need to relay on Love to compete at a high level.

As for the Jets, if they can land Rodgers, they will have one of the better quarterbacks in the league on their roster, which would be a huge boost for the team and their fans.

The sports world is eagerly waiting to see how this story develops, with the future of Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers, and the New York Jets all hanging in the balance.
