Aaron Rodgers he announced this Wednesday that he wants to play with New jets of York into the 2023 NFL season, after spending 18 seasons in the Green Bay Packers.
“I made it clear my intention was to play and play for the New York Jets. As of Friday, that’s my intention, but it’s the compensation that’s delaying the rest,” Rodgers, 39, said via the Pat McAfee program.
Packers and Jets continue to negotiate an exchange from the four-time NFL MVP who could include multiple first-round draft picks.
Rodgers, selected by Green Bay in the 24th pick of the first round of the 2005 Draft, played 18 seasons with the Packers, 15 of which as a starter, after which made a spiritual retreat a couple of weeks ago to define his future in the league.
The Chico, Calif. native led Green Bay to a Vince Lombardi Trophy win in Super Bowl XLV in the 2010 season, a game in which he was named Most Valuable Player.
Rodgers is one designation away from reaching the maximum number of NFL Most Valuable Player awards, to which he belongs Peyton Manning with five, which he said last January he had in mind.
“I think that I can win the MVP (Most Valuable Player) in the right situation, whether it’s with Green Bay or somewhere else, I’m not sure, but I don’t think I should close any opportunities,” he said before deciding to change teams.
Since the run-up to the 2022 season, Rodgers had expressed interest in ending his tenure at Green Bay following the departure of the bankruptcy trustee. In front of Adamshis most trusted weapon, immigrated to the Las Vegas Raiders.
At the end of the season, Green Bay did not qualify for the playoffs as the team finished with a record of eight wins and nine losses in third place in the North Division of the National Conference. It was a somewhat disappointing end to Rodgers’ successful career in the franchise, so his departure will be no cause for regret, as it will restructure a team that needs to star.
