The Aaron Rodgers trade saga, somehow, persists despite the fact that all three parties involved — Rodgers, the New York Jets, and the Green Bay Packers — are seemingly insistent on making it happen.
The problem, however, is that because all three parties want it to happen and everyone else knows it, they’re now the only options each other has, resulting in the trio all waiting for the other to blink.
Thus, Rodgers remains a member of the Packers despite publicly declaring his intention to play for the Jets, the Packers still employ Rodgers despite wanting to move on to Jordan Love, and the Jets still have Zach Wilson atop their QB depth chart despite clearly being finished with the third-year signal-caller.
In comes ESPN’s Mike Greenberg, who lost his mind — whether it be performatively or otherwise — that he got up out of his seat to scream and point in the face of Mike Tannenbaum, the former Jets and Dolphins GM that now works for the network.
.@Espngreeny absolutely LOST IT thinking about the Jets taking another QB besides Aaron Rodgers 😂

According to reports, the Packers are looking for at least a first-round draft pick in exchange for the 39-year-old four-time MVP, who is coming off his worst season in over a decade.
In 17 games last season, Rodgers led the Packers to an 8-9 record while completing 64% of his passes for 3,695 yards — his lowest in his full season since 2015 — 26 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions (his most since 2008).
Still, despite his relative struggles during the 2022 season, Aaron Rodgers’ addition to the New York Jets apparently makes them a Super Bowl contender, according to sportsbooks. At this time, the Jets have Super Bowl betting odds of about +1400, which is behind only the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills, and Cincinnati Bengals.
