As the world sits and waits for Green Bay and New York to work through the details of their blockbuster Aaron Rodgers trade, there are two fan bases with two completely different feelings about the Hall Of Famer’s soon to be departure and arrival.
The New York Jets’ Super Bowl odds for next season continue to surge in anticipation of Rodgers’ showing up to the Big Apple, but not everybody agrees that the team will make it that far. One legendary Packers player appears to have low expectations of what the 39-year-old quarterback will do with the Jets.
In a recent exclusive interview with TMZ, Packers legend and Green Bay media member LeRoy Butler didn’t hold back on his belief about Rodger’s future in New York.
“Ya’ll ain’t going to no Super Bowl,” Pro Football Hall of Famer LeRoy Butler told TMZ Sports.

Butler also predicted that the Jets will have another sub-500 record in 2023 just as they did in 2022. He predicted a record of 8-9.
Butler believes that Rodgers can still play at a high level, but he does not like the way he has handled the process this offseason so far.
“I’m going to say this: I was on a team that went to two Super Bowls — your team gotta be close,” Butler noted.
“I don’t know if Aaron Rodgers is going to be there the whole offseason to gel with the top Rookie of the Year wide receiver [Garrett Wilson]. . . . I don’t know if he’s going to be there to go to the clubs with Breece Hall. I don’t know.”
The former longtime Packers safety also warned fans to prepare for another offseason filled with uncertainty next year.
“And then, you have to waffle again if he wants to play for 2024,” Butler said.
With the soon-to-be departure of Rodgers, former first-round draft pick Jordan Love is expected to take over the starting quarterback duties next season.
Butler had glowing things to say about Love leading the Packers.
“We’re all on board,” Butler said. “We’re so excited. Thank you, Jets. Shout out Robert Saleh. Thank you! Thank you! Woody Johnson, thank you!”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
