Thank goodness this recreation of “laborious to get” has lastly come to its conclusion, and together with it one much less cause for Aaron Rodgers to look on my timeline. The deal has been accomplished between the Green Bay Packers and the New York Jets.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Rodgers will probably be a Jet for the 2023 season. The Packers despatched him to New York together with a fifth-round choose. In return, they moved up from the No. 15 to the No. 13 general choose on this week’s NFL Draft. In addition they acquired a sixth-round choose, and a first-rounder in 2024 if Rodgers performs in 65 p.c of the Jets’ performs.
I don’t understand how a lot needed to be conceded on either side to get this deal finished, and I don’t care. The Packers have been leaking information about being by means of with Rodgers for months. Now there will probably be no extra reviews concerning the sides getting closer. No extra information of Rodgers’ buddies getting despatched to the Jets whereas all of us look forward to the apparent to occur.
He’s with the Jets. The Jets are a superb soccer staff that may probably get higher with Rodgers behind middle. It’s probably that the Packers are going to take a huge step backwards, no matter how nicely Christian Watson performed on the finish of the 2022 season.
It is going to simply be good to have a information cycle with one much less pervasive human eye roll emoji.
