An era ends! Rodgers trade to the New York Jets is finalized.


NFL superstar Aaron Rodgers’ trade from the Green Bay Packers to the New York Jets is fixed.

Rodgers had already publicly expressed his desire to change in mid-March. Since then, the Jets and Packers have been looking for a solution to a trade that has been perfect since Monday night German time.

The Packers get a second-round pick (42nd) and a sixth-round pick (207th) for their longtime quarterback in the upcoming NFL draft. The teams are also swapping their first-round picks, allowing Green Bay to select a college talent in 13th place instead of 15th.

For 2024, the Packers get at least one second-round pick. If Rodgers completes 65 percent of all plays for the Jets, he automatically becomes a first-round pick.

In addition to its new franchise quarterback, New York will also receive a five-round pick (170th) for the 2023 NFL Draft new beacons of hope to be overcome.

The Jets had been looking for a reliable quarterback for years. Zach Wilson failed to make a lasting impression after arriving in 2021. The Packers, meanwhile, will be banking on Jordan Love, who was selected as the 26th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Rodgers had already announced in mid-March that he wanted to play for the New York Jets in the future. Drafted by Green Bay in the 2005 NFL Draft, the 39-year-old led the franchise to its fourth Super Bowl win in 2010. His contract with the Packers previously ran until the end of the 2026/27 season.

The fact is: An era is coming to an end in Wisconsin. According to media reports, Rodgers will wear jersey number 8 for the Jets.
