The Green Bay Packers still haven’t traded Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets despite him already telling them that he wants to leave the franchise. Despite the many roster moves that the Jets have made, the two sides might not be that close to a deal, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
During a hit on NFL Live recently, Schefter said the Jets feel like they are offering a lot, but it is being turned down by the Packers.
“The two sides have been stalled in their talks,” Schefter said. “There’s been a standoff with Green Bay wanting more than the Jets are offering. The Jets feel like they’re offering a lot. The Packers feel like they’re not offering enough, and the two sides are left at a stand-still.”
Dan Orlovsky pressed Schefter about the proposed compensation for Rodgers.

“They’ve gone back and forth on this, and they haven’t spoken much in the last week, but it certainly sounds like the Green Bay Packers want a first-round draft pick somewhere in that trade — and that’s not all,” Schefter said. “So, it’s up to the Jets to figure out what they’re comfortable living with, and what the Packers are comfortable accepting, and then the two sides can go from there.”
Rodgers said earlier in March that he intends to play for the Jets in 2023, but he remains under contract with the Packers and he does not have a no-trade clause. The Packers have the option of shipping elsewhere, but Rodgers could simply just retire if he doesn’t like the destination.
The Packers have pretty much made it clear that they are also ready to move on and have Jordan Love takeover to see what he can do. With no trade, Green Bay would be paying a lot to have a presumably disgruntled Rodgers on the roster.
Time will tell if the standoff will end before the Draft.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
