In a deal reached between the Green Bay Packers and the New York Jets, the four-time MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers will go to the Jets in exchange for valuable draft picks.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, these are the specifics of the trade:
No. 13 overall pick (first round)
No. 42 overall pick (second round)
No. 207 overall pick (sixth round)
Conditional second-round pick in 2024
QB Aaron Rodgers
No. 15 overall pick (first round)
No. 170 overall pick (fifth round)If Rodgers plays 65 percent of the snaps for the Jets in 2023, the conditional second-round pick, according to Schefter, changes to a first-round pick.
In other words, the Packers received Rodgers and a worse draft position (by 37 positions) on a Day 3 pick in 2023 in exchange for a better first-round pick in 2023, a second second-round pick in 2023, and a potential first-round pick (and no less than a second-rounder) in 2024.
