Report: Jets Deal for Aaron Rodgers Likely to Happen Prior to NFL Draft
While Jets fans sit and wonder when the team’s deal for Aaron Rodgers is likely to go down, one of the league’s most plugged in reporters has offered his best guess.
In his latest column for Sports Illustrated, Albert Breer says he expects a deal to go down prior to the NFL draft. Breer’s assumption makes sense as waiting until after the draft would almost certainly mean the picks in each round received by the Packers would be lower than this year’s.
What will that deal look like? If I had to guess, I’d put it at either the 42nd or 43rd pick, and a conditional pick or picks down the line. And to answer your question directly, I think it could happen as early as this week, and certainly will get done before the draft. So have patience, Jets fans—your quarterback is coming.
Breer also offers his best guess in what the deal will look like in suggesting the Jets will include either pick 43 or 43 in this year’s draft, along with a conditional pick next season. This would be in line with a recent report suggesting a similar package.
