Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is set to appear on the Pat McAfee Show today, and many expect him to announce a decision regarding his future.
Former NFL star and podcast host Pat McAfee revealed that the Packers quarterback texted him yesterday, and told him that he needs to appear on the show on Wednesday.
Here’s what Rodgers wrote in the message to McAfee:
“I think it’s time to let the world know what’s going on.”
It would be a typical Aaron Rodgers move to announce his rumored move to the New York Jets on the Pat McAfee Show. However, it is already widely assumed that a major announcement will be made today.
The New York Jets have already signed Allen Lazard to a four-year deal, which further indicates that Rodgers is edging closer to getting traded. While everyone is waiting for Rodgers to make a decision regarding his future, the general assumption is that the four-time NFL MVP will be playing in the AFC East.
Adam Schefter reported that the Green Bay Packers are looking for multiple first-round picks for Rodgers, which is why the deal may be stalling. There is hope that all parties involved will reach a mutual decision soon.
Aaron Rodgers to New York Jets will make a lot of sense
Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, but he has only won one Super Bowl in his career. Some believe that the Packers have fallen short of assisting Rodgers in winning more Super Bowls, which may be true.
However, a move to the Jets would put Rodgers on a significantly better team. The Jets have one of the league’s best defenses and a receiving core that is already excited about the prospect of playing with him.
The Packers also want to move on from Rodgers and give the keys to Jordan Love to see what he can do. Love has already been Rodgers’ backup for three years, which is the same amount of time Rodgers was Brett Favre’s backup.
Last season, Love demonstrated that he is ready to play, whereas the Jets desperately need a good quarterback to compete with. Both teams would be overjoyed if this transaction went through.
