0 14

The calendar has reached March 13 – the start of the NFL’s free agency negotiating window – and we’re still hoping for more clarity on Aaron Rodgers’ decision-making process. We are all still waiting whether or not the Green Bay Packers quarterback wants to play a 19th season of NFL football and where he would like to suit up for that season.

Rodgers’ options appear to have narrowed to retirement or agreeing to join the New York Jets via trade after Packers team president Mark Murphy Frida pointed outy that Green Bay would like to move on from its longest player and all-time passing touchdowns leader to continue the Jordan Love era.

On Monday, Trey Wingo reported Rodgers to the Jets is done, and that history was about to repeat itself. Meanwhile, the Jets remain optimistic as they await word on Rodgers’ decision, for Adam Schefter.

The Jets players certainly seemed optimistic that they would land a future Hall of Fame QB:

On Saturday at the RX Flag Football Charity Event in Laguna Beach, California, Rodgers admitted that the Packers needed to know what he would like to do with football in the future in an interview with Brandon Marshall former NFL wide receiver — and former Jet — for the “I AM ATHLETE” podcast.

“I think it won’t be long, there’s a time limit to all of this,” Aaron Rodgers said when asked about the timeline of his thought process on what he’d like to do in 2023.

Because the four-time NFL MVP has several years left on the three-year, $150 contract extension he signed with the Packers last offseason, the team had to allow Rodgers to talk to the Jets , something they wanted to do if they made the investment to trade for a 39-year-old journeyman. Murphy acknowledged that Green Bay allowed Rodgers and the Jets to bond to “reach an agreement that works not only for Aaron, but for us.”

“It’s always interesting to meet important people in the sport. It’s always interesting,” Rodgers said when Marshall asked what it was like to meet Jets owner Woody Johnson. “That’s all I’m giving you.”

Rodgers added: “Keep an eye on you.”

The team owner joined general manager Joe Douglas, head coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, one of Rodgers’ previous offensive coordinators in Green Bay, in flying out to Southern California to meet Rodgers on his turf earlier this week.

If Rodgers chooses to continue his football career and do so with the Jets and follow in the footsteps of his predecessor Brett Favre, the quarterback said he would not feel like “full time” with the franchise. new if he only played there for one season. Rodgers has taken his football career on a year-to-year basis for the past two seasons, deciding each offseason whether or not to continue playing in the NFL. When Marshall said he was a “full-time Jet” after playing two seasons with Gang Green from 2016-2017 in which he totaled 77 receptions, 942 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns, Rodgers pushed back against the idea that a player, even a great one, can be a “full-time” figure for an NFL franchise if they only play for that team for a year or two.

“Not if you’ve only played there one year, you can’t be a full-timer,” Rodgers said. “Organizations have a history, it’s about the people who made those organizations.”

The entire NFL and its fans now await Rodgers’ response and career decision as whatever he chooses to do will begin a series of actions throughout the rest of the season. 2023.
