Jets complete trade to acquire Aaron Rodgers from Packers


(WFAN) At long last, the Jets have completed the trade to bring future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers to New York as their new starting quarterback, according to multiple reports Monday afternoon.

After weeks and weeks of waiting, the Jets will swap first-round picks with the Packers, meaning New York will now pick at No. 15 instead of No. 13, and will acquire Green Bay's fifth-round pick this year. The Packers will get the Jets' second-round pick at No. 42 overall as well as a sixth-round pick at No. 207 in this draft. Beyond that, Green Bay will also receive a conditional 2024 second-round pick that will turn into a first-round pick if Rodgers plays 65% of the offensive snaps for New York in the 2023 season, according to ESPN.

With Rodgers now in the fold, the Jets have their star quarterback that they've been searching for for decades. Meanwhile, Rodgers will leave an NFC North that he and the Packers have dominated for years.

The Packers anticipate the deal will be finalized before the NFL Draft begins Thursday evening, they told the NFL Network.
