Aaron Rodgers says his intention is to play for the Jets

Aaron Rodgers said on the Pat McAfee Show that he intends to play for the Jets, and the hold-up is the Packers negotiating compensation.

Fantasy Impact

Now that the QB has finally spoken publicly, all attention will turn toward Green Bay while awaiting the official trade details. Assuming they can complete the deal (and depending on how many former Packers players he brings along), Rodgers's fantasy value should see a bump with the weapons surrounding him.

Aaron Rodgers: Jets optimistic they can land QB

According to NFL insider Dianna Russini, the Jets’ organization is optimistic they will be able to land Aaron Rodgers.

Fantasy Impact

According to the report, the Jets and the Packers are in talks about his contract and potential compensation. The Jets’ owner and key coaches met with Rodgers in California and the team left the meeting excited about the potential of acquiring Rodgers. If the Jets do land Rodgers, it is a massive fantasy boost to the Jets’ pass catchers.

Aaron Rodgers, Packers and Jets discussing QB

Sources have stated that the Jets and Packers are having discussions this week regarding a possible trade for Aaron Rodgers.

Fantasy Impact

With free agency starting next week, any deal between the teams would need to be made before Wednesday to ensure both are in compliance with the salary cap. The enigmatic 39-year-old QB emerged from his decision cocoon with no public news regarding his plans for 2023. If the Jets are speaking directly to him, the Packers have permitted him to do so. Rodgers' contract is exceptionally complicated, so any trade would only cost New York $15.8 million toward the cap in 2023 and $32.5 million in 2024. On the other hand, Green Bay would get hit with a $40.3 million "dead" charge this season if he is traded. The Jets have stated that QB Zach Wilson is not considered their primary starter in 2023, so a move of some kind seems likely.

Aaron Rodgers: Jets inquire veteran QB’s availability

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the New York Jets have inquired with the Green Bay Packers regarding QB Aaron Rodgers’ availability in a trade.

Fantasy Impact

The New York Jets narrowly missed out on the playoffs despite its QB woes in 2022. With the Zach Wilson experience running out of time, the Jets are exploring the veteran market, including Rodgers. Rodgers has still not made a decision on his own future, though, taking time away for a “darkness retreat” to clear his mind.

Aaron Rodgers: Packers ‘prefer’ to trade veteran QB

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Green Bay Packers would “prefer” to trade QB Aaron Rodgers this offseason due to financial reasons, a fact Rodgers is “well aware of.”

Fantasy Impact

Rodgers signed a large extension that is tricky for the Packers to deal with unless traded away, as the team is well over the cap limit and has plenty of key free agents. Rodgers’ media presence also insinuates that the two sides may be parting ways. Previous reports stated that the Packers would prefer to trade Rodgers to an AFC team, and with the deadline for Jordan Love’s fifth-year option creeping up, the move could happen sooner rather than later.
