There’s no doubt that the recent Aaron Rodgers to New York Jets trade is one of the biggest in modern NFL history. The former Packers quarterback joined the Jets as he followed in Brett Favre’s path. Many people thought that he would retire but he opted to join the AFC East. It’s a shame that Tom Brady isn’t there because it would have been perfect (via The Guardian).
Some people think that it’s one of the worst deals of the past decade. The Jets gave up the 13th overall pick in 2023, as well as a second-rounder, a six-rounder, and the second becomes a potential first-rounder in 2024 if Rodgers plays just 65 percent of the snaps in 2023. It’s a lot but if Rodgers transforms them into contenders they won’t complain. Meanwhile, Jordan Love has the unenviable task of becoming the next Green Bay icon.
