Jason Kelce has had enough of the saga surrounding Aaron Rodgers.
Philadelphia Eagles star center Jason Kelce called quarterback Aaron Rodgers‘ reported “wish list” demands to join the New York Jets a “full-blown hostage situation.”
Earlier this week, ESPN’s Dianna Russini reported that the Packers quarterback has a “wish list” of players he would like to see the team sign before he decides on agreeing to a trade from the Green Bay Packers to the Jets. That was a claim that Rodgers would dispute the following day while interviewing on The Pat McAfee show.
Kelce and his brother Travis were on their New Heights podcast and discussed that report.
“It’s also known as a list of demands,” Jason said. “He’s provided the New York Jets with a list of demands. We’re full-blown hostage situation at this point.”

Travis Kelce then jumped in and did an imitation from Captain Phillips. “Hostage situation! I am the captain now! I need a briefcase with 300 million dollars.”
Jason added, “with Odell Beckham in the briefcase.” Then the Kelces turn into football guys again. “I mean, I get it,” Jason Kelce says of the Aaron Rodgers situation. “Listen, the Jets are stacked on defense. Their head coach is a defensive coach. Aaron coming over there, it could be a match made in heaven. He just wants to make sure they got a target that he feels comfortable with.”
“We’ve got a hostage situation, they’re trying to keep all the hostages alive,” Travis tells his brother. Jason counters: “You give us one, we give you one, you give us one and also come to play our quarterback. That’s kind of where we’re at.”
After Rodgers admitted on Wednesday to The Pat McAfee Show of his “intention” to play for the Jets, he called Russini’s report “ridiculous.”
In the meantime, the Jets have signed Lazard to a four-year, $44 million contract.
As for Jason, the 35-year-old will return to the Eagles for the 2023 season.GOOGLE NEWS.
