ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported over the weekend that a blockbuster trade involving Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a “real possibility” this upcoming offseason.
This week, it is now being reported that the Packers do indeed have an asking price should a team come calling for his services. The Packers reportedly want at least two 1st-round picks in a major trade for Rodgers.
It did not take very long to find a team, because Peter King also reported the Jets would “happily” pay a steep price to acquire Rodgers.
“The Woody Johnson Jets, desperate for a star QB almost since the Broadway Joe days, would happily pay that freight, I’d guess,” King wrote. “But would Rodgers accept a deal to the Jets? We shall see.”
The Jets were a good team at one point last season, but their failure on the field was because of the QB position. Zach Wilson is clearly not the answer after he got benched twice and his teammates don’t seem to like him very much on and off the field.
Mike White and Joe Flacco are not the answer as well, so the team needs to make a move this offseason to avoid wasting the talent they have on offense and defense.
