Report: Jets Deal for Aaron Rodgers Likely to Happen Prior to NFL Draft


Recommended Posts

Aaron-Rodgers-2-scaled.jpg

While Jets fans sit and wonder when the team’s deal for Aaron Rodgers is likely to go down, one of the league’s most plugged in reporters has offered his best guess.

In his latest column for Sports Illustrated, Albert Breer says he expects a deal to go down prior to the NFL draft.  Breer’s assumption makes sense as waiting until after the draft would almost certainly mean the picks in each round received by the Packers would be lower than this year’s.

What will that deal look like? If I had to guess, I’d put it at either the 42nd or 43rd pick, and a conditional pick or picks down the line. And to answer your question directly, I think it could happen as early as this week, and certainly will get done before the draft. So have patience, Jets fans—your quarterback is coming.

Breer also offers his best guess in what the deal will look like in suggesting the Jets will include either pick 43 or 43 in this year’s draft, along with a conditional pick next season.  This would be in line with a recent report suggesting a similar package.

Makes sense to me. 

Hard to imagine the Packers not wanting picks in this year's draft. I think it's a tough sell to Packers fans to go a full year before receiving any compensation for Aaron Rodgers, while having to watch him strap on his imaginary championship belt in a Jets uniform.

That always seemed like the natural deadline.

Both sides want (and basically need) to make the deal and obviously forgoing any draft comp in 2023 is terrible for the Packers.

I think the packers figured they’d wait a while and see if douglas panicked and gave up the 13 pick.

I’d say by the second day of the draft, anyway. I’m the Buddha when it comes to patience in this matter. It’s going to happen, it’s only a matter of when. I also would not be surprised to learn in the end that it was Joe Douglas driving the hard bargain, not the Packers. I’m not too worried about the draft compensation, and I’ll look at the contract numbers again when all the dust settles. A lot of the wait, almost certainly, is tied to all the money involved.

JD should trade down and get an additional 2 & 3, if possible, to soften the blow. Hoping pick #62 goes to GB and we keep 42 & 43

Since his first draft he’s had more success sticking & picking or trading up than trading down. I believe that’s what the Moore trade was about, so that the team has essentially the same first and second round selections after trading for Rodgers.

Yeah.  Have to think it will be OL or DT, maybe FS.

I loved getting the extra second and have no issue giving it to GB as comp for AR playing this year.  Keeping our 1 and 2 to add pieces for what might be a one year opportunity.  Good bye to Elijah Moore and hello to Mecole Hardman, sign me up all good!

It's the issue of next year's compensation that is a bit less clear.  It's been reported that GB wants a second round pick with no conditions.  The Jets are willing to give up the 2nd but if Rodgers retires want a pick back in 2025.   This makes little sense to me as we lose a year of draft value and because one would think we would know Rodgers status for 2024 by the time of the draft.  IMO the deal should be the pick this year with a conditional next year based on performance:  a 3rd that turns into a 2nd or a 2nd that turns into a 1st if AR is top 5 in MVP voting contingent on AR playing in 2025.  If he is not there should be no additional compensation, paying anything next year for a player that won't be playing would be unreasonable.

I agree with this.  It just seems to me that the Jets need more capable bodies.   They have stars in Quinnen, Sauce, Rodgers (!), Breece, GW, AVT.

I don’t see much new here except that the packers aren’t demanding a first round pick.  Unless the jets see some players they really want in later rounds I think it would make sense for them to resolve the whole draft pick issue this season, say a second and fifth rounder.  I know, god willing, that they don’t intend to be so high in the draft order at least for the next two seasons but I believe if you’re pulling a tooth get it out all at once.

I don't see us giving up any of our 2nd round picks this year. Our 2nd round picks are too valuable for a 2-year rental and the Packers only have themselves to blame with that horrendous contract that they made to Rodgers.

Now we're helping GB to get Aaron Rodgers out of their hands with that bad contract AND give up one of our 2nd round picks? 

I don't see that happening and I hope I'm right

I hope it doesn't... keep our 2023 picks ... send them a 2024 conditional 3rd or 4th 

Pffft. You're soft.

Should be a 7th rounder in 2025 only if we win the SB in 2023. And again in 2024. With Rodgers starting & finishing every game. Also he has to throw for 10K yards between the two seasons.

Also they have to eat half his option bonus. Both years.

Anything less than that and there should be a give-back of their 2025 picks in rounds 1 and 2.

11 years ago we decided to move so my son would be closer to his new school.  We invested an enormous amount in renovating a 1920 house.    Everything was top of the line, worked perfectly.  In a community of older Money Pits, it was a perfect family house.  The market was ok.   The realtor gave us a realistic but slightly aggressive target price.  '

There was emotion involved.  We/I was NOT selling the house below a certain number.  I told my wife we would stay put unless we got the price. 

Only one buyer was interested, and they tried to low ball.  I would not budge.  They would not budge.  I knew they really wanted our house and there was nothing better.  They conceded, pay us our minimum, and we sold the house.  They are still there.  

I think GB is me 11 years ago.
