Mock Off-Season 2023: Pre-Free Agency Edition

NFL: New York Jets OTA John Jones-USA TODAY Sports

The combine has come and gone. Most of the prospects at large have put their talents on display. There are still pro days and individual workouts, but for the most part it is time for scouting departments to really start putting together their plan. Carr is out of the running, which leaves our 1A option, Aaron Rodgers as our primary focus. How that plays out will determine how the rest of the offseason goes. For the purpose of this mock offseason, I will be awarding us Rodgers with a deal only JD could pull off. We will be giving GB our 43rd pick in 2023 and a conditional 2nd in 2024 that could become a 1st if Rodgers returns. If he retires, we get back a 2025 2nd. First let’s get into FA. All cap space estimates are based on effective cap which is our cap space - what it will cost for draft picks and practice squad.
