Last month, the Green Bay Packers traded star quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets, ending his storied 18-season run on the famed Frozen Tundra.
The move ended his era and kicked off the Jordan Love at the same time. Now, the only thing left to do is figure out who takes his locker in the stadium.
According to Packers beat writer Ryan Wood, Rodgers locker room will now be taken by Packers rookie Sean Clifford after he was drafted by Green Bay with the 149th pick.
“It’s cool. That’s what it is,” Clifford told reporters. “I understand who was in here before, and I respect everything about that, but at the same time, I came in, I found my name on the plate, and I sat down. I’m doing whatever it takes to win games here. I’m very appreciative of the opportunity.”

Rodgers led the Packers to a 2011 Super Bowl victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and made Green Bay a perennial contender. Unfortunately, the Super Bowl has alluded him ever since.
Rodgers has thrown for 475 touchdown passes, the fifth most in NFL history, and he’d be the active career leader as long as Tom Brady remains retired. His 59,055 passing yards puts him at No. 9 in NFL history and second among active quarterbacks.
The pressure to get back to the Super Bowl will only get greater as he moves on to a more talented team that will not allow him to have any excuses to not get the job done.
Rodgers had voiced ongoing displeasure with Green Bay management in recent years for allegedly not surrounding him with more talent that could have brought the team more playoff wins.
He will not have that excuse in New York. They are ready to win now.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
