New Report Reveals Packers' Potential Return From Aaron Rodgers Trade
One of the biggest stories around the NFL right now is the trade negotiations between the Green Bay Packers and New York Jets over Aaron Rodgers. With talks still very much ongoing, it's clear the two sides aren't in agreement on the terms just yet.
However, a new report has revealed what will likely be the return for Green Bay.
Aaron Rodgers Trade Rumors
Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports says a deal is currently centered around two picks going to the Packers: the Jets' 2023 second-rounder and a 2024 second-rounder that could become a first if a predetermined escalator is hit. Robinson's source also notes an agreement is getting "closer" despite the stringent negotiations.
"An example of such an escalator would be if the Jets were to host a home divisional playoff game or advance to the AFC championship game. A sticking point in the talks is the Jets seeking an element of protection built into the trade, specifically one that sends some 2025 draft compensation to New York from Green Bay if Rodgers does not play in 2024 and beyond."- Charles Robinson, Yahoo! Sports
According to Robinson, one hurdle the two front offices need to overcome is protection in case Rodgers decides to retire after the 2023 campaign. Given his constant flirtation with retirement in recent years, New York is seeking an agreement that guarantees Green Bay sending draft capital back in case the veteran quarterback hangs his cleats up.
It sounds like these sides are close to hammering out a deal considering the specifics that have surfaced. Fans of both teams, however, will remain anxious until the deal is officially announced.
