SNY reported Saturday that “everything that needs to be done is essentially done,” and if Rodgers wants to be a New York Jet, he’ll be traded.
This follows multiple reports over the past few days that the Jets are close to acquiring the future Hall of Famer.
Trade compensation is not yet known.
Rodgers, 39, totaled 3,695 passing yards, 26 passing touchdowns, 12 interceptions and a 91.1 passer rating this season, completing 64.6 percent of his passes. Green Bay missed the playoffs.
Last offseason, Rodgers signed a three-year, $150.8 million contract with the Packers.
Rodgers won Super Bowl XLV with Green Bay in the 2010 NFL season and was voted the game’s MVP. He is a four-time regular season MVP.
Could an Aaron Rodgers trade be bad for the Jets?
The New York Jets have reportedly met with Aaron Rodgers ahead of free agency next week. There is also reported “optimism” in the Jets organization about a potential trade. But would it be the right step? Jason McIntyre explains why Rodgers in the Big Apple isn’t the right call, but adding Lamar Jackson is.
This is a developing story.
