Thank goodness this recreation of “laborious to get” has lastly come to its conclusion, and together with it one much less purpose for Aaron Rodgers to seem on my timeline. The deal has been accomplished between the Inexperienced Bay Packers and the New York Jets.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Rodgers shall 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 know the way a lot needed to be conceded on each side to get this deal carried out, and I don’t care. The Packers have been leaking information about being by way of with Rodgers for months. Now there shall be no extra studies in regards to the sides getting nearer. No extra information of Rodgers’ buddies getting despatched to the Jets whereas all of us anticipate the apparent to occur.
He’s with the Jets. The Jets are a superb soccer staff that can doubtless get higher with Rodgers behind heart. It’s doubtless that the Packers are going to take a huge step backwards, no matter how effectively Christian Watson performed on the finish of the 2022 season.
It can simply be good to have a information cycle with one much less pervasive human eye roll emoji.
