Nearly two weeks after Aaron Rodgers revealed his intentions to play for the Jets in the upcoming season, he’s still in Green Bay, waiting for the trade to happen. So what’s the holdup?
According to Yahoo!, the trade has not yet occurred because the Jets want more than just Rodgers; they want the Packers to also give them a 2025 draft pick in case Rodgers decides to retire after the 2023. While the Jets think Rodgers is worth the two draft picks they’re giving up, they don’t think one season of Rodgers is worth it, a source tells Yahoo!

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson says he still feels ‘pretty confident’ that a trade for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will happen this offseason.
At the NFL owners meetings on Tuesday, Johnson said, ‘We’re pretty confident that we can get something done’ and explained that ‘Gang Green’ has ‘a plan.’
Johnson did suggest he was getting slightly impatient with the ongoing saga saying, ‘I’m not the patient sort. We’re in the win business. We have to win now.’
