Joe Douglas fuels Aaron Rodgers trade hype amid ongoing Jets-Packers standoff

Joe Douglas, the General Manager of the New York Jets, has stirred up the hype surrounding a potential trade for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers amid the ongoing standoff between Rodgers and the Packers.

NFL insider Mike Florio revealed the Packers were initially eyeing to keep their veteran QB in the squad, however, later might have made a major concession to the four-time MVP off their books and backed off from wanting the 39-year-old.

In contrast, the Jets team previously showcased interest to sign the Packers QB and Aaron himself too disclosed his intention to play for the Jets after returning from a darkness retreat, albeit the lack of mutual decision between the Packers and the Jets is a major block for the potential deal.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jets feel like they are offering a lot and the Packers feel like they are not offering enough, creating uncertainty over the elite player’s future.

Meanwhile, the Packers Craig Carton insider disclosed Tuesday on “The Carton Show” that the San Francisco 49ers are eyeing to acquire the four-time MVP if a potential contract with the Jets falls through, albeit Carton’s co-host later claimed the Packers intentionally spread the rumor by the FS1 reporter to urge the Jets to finalize a deal with them.

What did the Jets GM say about the trade of Aaron Rodgers?

During an event with WFAN Sports Radio on Friday in Jersy City, Boomer Esiason asked the Packers GM Douglas if Aaron is coming to the Jets.

With a smile, the GM replied, “He’s gonna be here”, creating an instant buzz and cheering among the crowd.

Earlier the Jets owner Woody Johnson hinted at the team’s optimism to include the four-time MVP in their roster.

“We’re anxious, I guess. We look forward. We’re optimistic. We have a plan. We’re willing to stick with our plan and I don’t think anybody is hyperventilating”, he stated.

While nothing is certain at this point, Douglas’ comments have added another layer of intrigue to the situation, leaving the NFL world speculating about the potential outcome of the Rodgers trade and its impact on the Jets and the NFL landscape.

The drama surrounding the star quarterback’s future shows no signs of abating, and football fans around the world will undoubtedly be eagerly awaiting further developments in this ongoing saga.
