Florio: Aaron Rodgers has been 'actively involved' in recruiting players to Jets


(Audacy) Is Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers getting moved to the Jets a done deal? That depends on which report you believe.

A decision on what’s next for Rodgers seems imminent. The Jets met with him last week, and all signs point to him landing in New York – with a report from former ESPN host Trey Wingo on Monday indicating the move was “done.”

However, other reports indicated that while the deal is trending in that direction, nothing is done.

Who knows when a decision actually will come down. But interestingly, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk has heard that Rodgers has been recruiting players to the Jets.

"I heard that it was close to done, but it’s not done," Florio said on the Mully & Haugh Show on Tuesday morning. "That Rodgers had come to terms with being traded to the Jets and he was actively involved in recruiting Packers players who are available to come to New York – but that it’s still not done.”

It should come as little surprise then that as of Tuesday morning, ex-Packers wideout Allen Lazard, a favorite target of Rodgers, is “actively working” on an agreement with the Jets.

A timeline for when Rodgers will make a decision isn’t entirely clear, although it’s worth noting he usually makes an Tuesday afternoon appearance on the Pat McAfee Show. Either way, both the Jets and Packers are handcuffed until Rodgers makes his call.
