The general manager of the New York Jets, Joe Douglas, gave new hope to the fans this Saturday after assuring that Aaron Rodgers, a four-time NFL MVP, will soon sign with his team for the 2023 season.
“He’s going to be here! He’s going to sign eventually, although there’s no hard deadline.”the manager expressed emotionally before a crowd during a special broadcast of the morning show Boomer & Gio that airs in New York City.
The signing of the quarterback, who has spent his 18-year career with the Green Bay Packers, It has become a crossword puzzle that does not end up growing branches to fill.
First, the 39-year-old veteran quarterback indicated his intention to retire from the NFL at the end of the 2022 season after failing to make the playoffs with the Packers.
In mid-February Rodgers entered a four-day darkness retreat in a cabin located on a nature preserve to discuss his future. As he left he said that he had decided to pursue his career, but it wasn’t until the middle of last month that revealed his desire to do it in the New York Jets.
The problem is that The quarterback has one year left with the Packers, so the negotiation with the Jets has not been easysince Green Bay hopes to get first-round or at least second-round picks for this year’s Draft and the one in 2024 to release the quarterback that led them to win Super Bowl XLV.
Despite these difficulties the Jets already put together an offense Rodgers likes. They hired Nathaniel Hackett as offensive coordinator in Januarywho worked in that position with Aaron in Green Bay from 2019 to 2021.
In their next move they signed receiver Allen Lazard, one of Rodgers’ favorite weapons in the Packers, a team in which they lived from 2018 to 2022.
Last Thursday The Jets added quarterback Tim Boyle, who was Aaron’s backup in Green Bay from 2018-2020, to their roster.period in which he was also with Hackett, so he knows the game plan to work on this offseason while Rodgers comes to the team.
Finally, this Saturday it was confirmed that the receiver Odell Beckham, champion in Super Bowl LVI with the Rams, will visit the Jets who seek to sign him for the following campaign.
During the offseason Beckham was, along with Lazard, one of the requests that Aaron Rodgers made to decide to play for the Jets.
