Lost in the ongoing flirtation between the Jets and the quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the inescapable reality that Rodgers and the Packers are Complete,
Two years ago, the 49ers called the Packers the day before the draft to inquire about trading for Rodgers. Packers laughed and hung up.
Now the Packers have freely given the Jets permission to talk to Rodgers. And speak they have, sending the team’s entire power structure to California in an attempt to persuade Rodgers to cut the Big Apple (don’t mind the maggots).
Meanwhile, the Packers have kept their mouth shut. He also did not leak that he had given Rodgers permission to talk to another team. It’s almost like they’re up by four points with three minutes left and they’re trying to get the clock right and not blow it.
If Rodgers decides he’s not interested in the Jets, and wants to stay in Green Bay, they’ll blow it away. It’s already too late for that, but Rodgers has yet to make any of his decisions known for 2023, a year and a day after he announced he would return to the Packers for 2022.
Although nothing official has been announced this year, the tea leaves are pointing to Wisconsin Ayahuasca for Aaron Rodgers. Any other result at this point would be surprising.
