Good morning, Gang Green Nation. I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Aaron Rodgers went on the Pat McAfee show yesterday and announced his desire to play for the New York Jets. As it turns out, the biggest hold-up has been on the side of the Packers. The team made it clear in the offseason - and multiple other times - that they would be moving on from Rodgers this year. This, despite giving Rodgers a large extension only one year ago. As it turns out, the team isn’t so quick to get rid of the future Hall of Famer, but want more compensation than anyone would give for a soon-to-be 40-year old player. Rodgers has made his disdain clear, and hopefully that leads to the trade getting done sooner than later. Until then, here are your links to the Jets to start your morning.
