The Green Bay Packers reportedly have set their asking price for the New York Jets if they truly want to come and trade for Aaron Rodgers.
According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, the Packers’ asking price is a second-round pick in this year’s draft and a first-round pick in next year’s draft. However, they are trying to work with them by stating they would be willing to give something back in 2025 if Rodgers only plays one season.
As of right now, the New York Jets do not want to meet that price because Jets owner Woody Johnson refuses to deal a guaranteed first-round pick, which is why trade talks have slowed down or become nonexistent.

Per Robinson, Johnson has cold feet after watching the Denver Broncos trade a haul of picks to the Seattle Seahawks for quarterback Russell Wilson only to finish in last place in the AFC West last year. Wilson looked like a shell of himself in year one and not many think he will be able to turn things around, even with Sean Payton as his head coach.
Per Robinson, the er Robinson, but Rodgers would open his mouth and state on the Pat McAfee Show that he was “90 percent” certain he would retire before contemplating his future at a darkness retreat led to negotiation issues.
Robinson added that the parameters would have been a third-rounder in 2023 and a first-rounder in 2024.
Back in March, the four-time NFL MVP said on the Pat McAfee Show that he intends to play for the Jets after 18 seasons in Green Bay. Nearly one month later, the two teams are no closer to a trade now than they were back then. It is very possible Rodgers will be on the Packers’ roster after the NFL draft.
For now, the stare down between the Packers and Jets continues as the future of Rodgers remains in limbo.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
