The Aaron Rodgers saga is not officially over until a trade can go through, but at least everybody knows where Aaron Rodgers’ finally stands with his decision.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ declaration of his intent to join the Jets on The Pat McAfee Show brought a bittersweet feeling to many Wisconsinites, and that included the holder of the highest office in the state.
Asked about Rodgers getting set to take his talents to New York, Wisconsin governor Tony Evers expressed relief that Rodgers was finally gone. However, he did note the future Hall of Famer’s successes in Green Bay.
“It’s been kind of a soap opera, and I’d like to see soap operas come to an end. So this is good,” Evers said of Rodgers’s decision. “God bless him, though, he was good for many, many years here, and he wants to move on, and the team wants to go in a different direction.”

Evers has served as the Badger State’s governor since January 2019. Since he took office, Rodgers has won two of his four NFL MVP awards.
“At least we know that it’s done,” Evers added. “We can focus on other things and focus on getting the Packers’ new quarterback in a better position.”
The only thing left to do is complete the trade and make Rodgers’s move to New York official.
The Jets will have the QB that gives them a shot to win a Super Bowl, while the Packers will move on and put Jordan Love in the starting QB position to get his career started after sitting behind Rodgers for the past two years.
Rodgers may be about to leave Green Bay, but he had high praise for Jordan Love on The Pat McAfee Show on Wednesday, saying that he would be a “great player” on a “good, young team.”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
