Last year, when the Broncos hired former Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as their new head coach, many believed the Broncos would land the next quarterback. Aaron Rodgers. Many believe it was no coincidence that the Broncos struck a deal for the quarterback just hours after Rodgers announced his plans to stay in Green Bay. Russell Wilson.
This year, with Hackett becoming the Jets’ new offensive coordinator, speculation has already begun that Rodgers will be Broadway-bound, just like his Green Bay predecessor.
But will he join the Jets? First, Rodgers must decide what he wants to play. Second, he must decide not to play for the Packers. Third, he should choose the jets as his target. Fourth, the Jets and Packers must work out an acceptable deal. Fifth, Rodgers and the Jets must negotiate an acceptable contract.
After the first three, the last two should be pretty easy. The Packers, who are escaping almost $60 million in cash and cap liabilities, certainly don’t want a huge burden on a player with only one year left.
Fifteen years ago, Brett Favre received a fourth-round pick that would be upgraded to a first-round pick. Once Rodgers decides he wants to play, wants out of Green Bay and wants to play for the Jets, the Packers can’t make unreasonable demands.
Ultimately, the best the Packers can get are two picks. One in 2023 and the other in 2025 and 2024.
As for Rodgers’ contract, the reality is that he’s already owed $58.3 million through 2023.There should be some corrections“In his contract, that doesn’t mean he’s going to take a penny less than he’s due. And he shouldn’t. It just means the payments have to be structured to better manage the cap numbers in 2023, 2024 and beyond.
Finally, the third question on Rodgers’ list has an interesting summary. Earlier this week, Rodgers claimed the media had defamed him Under orders from Big Pharma – Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson. Jets are owned by Johnson & Johnson heir Woody Johnson.
Will working on Johnson’s team be a starter? Or will he ignore the link? Regardless, he’ll be asked about it during an introductory press conference, and it’s unlikely he’ll utter the word “”.enthusiastically” (or some variation thereof) over 40 times.
