It seems like the Aaron Rodgers saga is coming to a close. The future Hall of Fame quarterback seems like he is ready to leave the Green Bay Packers, the franchise he has spent his entire 19-year career with.
The team that has been most linked to Rodgers is the New York Jets. The Jets have a pretty good roster, and went 7-10 last year with terrible quarterback play.
And, Rodgers has reportedly given the Jets a list of free agents that he would like the team to sign.

It includes Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, Marcedes Lewis and….Odell Beckham Jr.

The team already signed Lazard on Tuesday to a four-year, $44 million deal.

And, another big sign that Rodgers would be joining the Jets was when Pro Football Network’s Trey Wingo reported on Monday that he had made his decision to play for the Jets.
Hearing Rodgers to the Jets is done. History about to repeat itself between New York and Green Bay. Time is indeed a flat circle

Of course, he is referencing Brett Favre also joining the Jets after a long career with the Packers.
After Wingo tweeted that out, many felt the deal would be done immediately. But, it’s been over 36 hours now, and no deal is done. Don’t worry Jets fans, he’s still confident in his report.
I had to catch up with Trey Wingo (@wingoz) after his tweet about Aaron Rodgers to the #Jets.
"The tweet I put out is going to happen. The deal has essentially been in place since last Friday. The holdup isn't Aaron."

Rodgers is appearing on the Pat McAfee show on Wednesday, and rumors are he will announce his decision then.
