Report: Undrafted teams don’t see Aaron Rodgers as first-round pick originally appeared nbc sports chicago
As of this writing, the Green Bay Packers and the New York Jets are working on a trade package for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
But The Pat McAfee Show Last week, Rodgers explicitly acknowledged his intention to play for the Jets, while the Packers and Jets are actively working out the details of a deal.
According to reports by Albert Breer, some of the unincorporated teams doubted the Packers’ alleged reciprocity of Rodgers’ wishes. They believe that he is not worthy of a first round draft pick.
“And in calling around, asking the teams that aren’t involved what they would give up, just everybody said it should be a Day 2 pick this year, a package with a conditional pick or two on the back end, ” Brer wrote,
Based on previous reports from Adam Schefter, he stated that the Packers were looking for a trade return similar to the Detroit Lions with Matthew Stafford. The Lions received two first-round picks, a third-round pick, and Jared Goff.
However, the league’s consensus doesn’t see it that way for Rodgers. They don’t meet face-to-face at the expense of Rogers, who is 39.
Rodgers arguably took a step back last season, throwing for the fewest yards in a full season for his career. His completion percentage dropped to 4.3 percent from the previous season and he posted a losing record as a starter (8–9), just the third time in his career that he posted a losing record.

Unfortunately, the two sides have yet to reach an agreement.
patience is a virtue.
