Aaron Rodgers claimed he would not hold the Green Bay Packers hostage with his decision, but in reality he has left them as well as the New York Jets hostage with both of them waiting on his final decision.
One analyst seems to think they are not being held hostage, because a decision has already been made.
On Monday’s edition of Get Up, ESPN NFL analyst Dan Orlovsky made the shocking claim that Rodgers going to the New York Jets is a “done deal.” He added that the holdup is more about his agent trying to make sure everything is worked out before it is officially announced.
“I think Aaron Rodgers to the Jets is a done deal. I’ve felt that for like a week. I just honestly believe that. I think they’re trying to figure out how to make it work…” Orlovsky said.

NFL Insider Trey Wingo has also since come out and said he’s heard that “Rodgers to the Jets is done.”
After winning back-to-back MVP awards, Rodgers had a down year in 2022 based on his standards. He spoke out about the team having a lack of talent and it ultimately led to the Packers missing the postseason altogether.
Jets players, including cornerback Sauce Gardner, have shared posts on social media recruiting Rodgers to New York. They would love the upgrade at QB after dealing with Zach Wilson this past year, who was benched multiple times for poor play.
Rodgers, who met with Jets brass last Tuesday in Malibu, said it “won’t be long” before he reveals the next step of his NFL career. The 39-year-old could decide to retire, request a trade out of Green Bay or return to the Packers for his 19th season with the team.
The Packers said they hoped for a decision from Rodgers by the start of free agency.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
