We previously reported on how everyone was wrong about the Aaron Rodgers drama.
It was the Packers holding up the trade, not him.
We have more proof of this.
The Packers want more than just a 1st round pick for him.
It’s not. The Packers want a lot for Rodgers. They want more than they should, frankly. The Jets believe the Packers are being unreasonable.
Per multiple sources, the Packers want a first-round pick and more from the Jets for Rodgers.
The Packers want more than a first-round pick as part of the base deal. They want protection in 2025, in the event Rodgers plays in 2024. And that’s more than the Jets believe they should surrender for a player the Packers no longer want.
If the Jets are willing to offer something like a conditional package that would entail as much as a second-round pick this year and up to a second-round pick next year, the Packers would be nuts to not take it.
I’ll be honest I think the Packers are really doing Rodgers dirty in this situation.
They didn’t come out in his defense while the media was swarming around him and now they are holding out for more instead of trading the guy they no longer want.
