On the Pat McAfee show on Wednesday, future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers confirms he intends to play for the New York Jets.
This was the moment that many of us have been waiting for. After weeks of drama, darkness retreats and other nonsense, Aaron Rodgers finally revealed what his decision has been.
Rodgers went on a bit of a mini-speech detailing his darkness retreat and talked about what was happening with the Green Bay Packers organization over the last few years that has led to this point.
He revealed to the Pat McAfee Show audience of hundreds of thousands of people that he intends to play for the New York Jets, but also said that before he went into his darkness retreat, he was 90% retired and 10% wanting to play.
Apparently, the darkness retreat and what followed really helped mold Rodgers’ decision.
He also indicated that the trade talks are the main holdups right now but that his intention is to become a Jet.
If and when this trade goes through, it would be a massive, massive league-changing move. The Jets would go from being one of the worst teams in the NFL to a Super Bowl contender. They fielded a top defense in 2022 and have quite a few play-makers on offense.
There’s also the Allen Lazard situation and him expecting to sign with the Jets. Lazard has been a teammate of Rodgers obviously, and there were other rumors swirling that the Jets were looking to try to sign longtime Aaron Rodgers’ teammate Randall Cobb.
This trade would propel the Jets to one of the top teams in the NFL but it’s unclear how long he’ll play for.
He also seems to hint that it seems like it’s long overdue for the Packers and himself to move on from each other, which is understandable after a near 20-year marriage.
While nothing is official yet, the Green Bay Packers seem to be moving on from Aaron Rodgers.
