Aaron Rodgers basically owns the Jets at this point.
He provided them with a list of receivers he wants. They have already signed one of them, Allen Lazard.
If quarterback Aaron Rodgers lands with the New York Jets in a trade, he would like to be surrounded by some of his BFFs.
The Green Bay Packers’ star has supplied the Jets with a wish list of free agents he’d like them to pursue and acquire, and it includes Odell Beckham Jr., sources told ESPN’s Dianna Russini.
Predictably, the list also has three former Packers teammates: wide receivers Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb and tight end Marcedes Lewis.
Chris Russo bashed him over this demand calling him a diva.
Chris Russo opened his SiriusXM program on Tuesday responding to the report from ESPN’s Dianna Russini that Rodgers wishes to play with free agents Allen Lazard (whom the Jets have already signed), Randall Cobb (with whom they’re reportedly in talks with), Marcedes Lewis and Odell Beckham Jr.
“Can Aaron Rodgers come to New York without a bunch of demands?” Russo asked.
“Can Aaron Rodgers, for once in his life, make a decision quickly and succinctly, without being such a diva?”
I have no issue with an organization trying to make a player happy. The issue here is the fact that the Jets are doing this for a guy who may not even come to the team.
If this deal falls through the Jets will be a laughing stock.
