Latest buzz on Aaron Rodgers: Packers 'holding out' for three Jets draft picks
The Jets have interest in trading for Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. Here's the latest buzz...

The Jets and Packers have been at a standstill on the Aaron Rodgers front for a while now and Yahoo NFL reporter Charles Robinson indicated haggling over Green Bay's asking price as the source of the holdup.
“The Packers are holding out for what they want right now,” Robinson said on the Wilde & Tausch show on ESPN Radio in Milwaukee on Wednesday. “And that’s a problem, I think, with the Jets and more specifically with Jets ownership.”
Robinson relayed Green Bay’s current asking price for the quarterback as a 2023 second-round draft pick, a “straight-shot” 2024 first-round draft pick (without conditions attached to it) and a conditional 2025 draft pick that would be returned to New York if Rodgers does not play in 2024.
However, Robinson said, there is a reluctance within the Jets organization to give up a first-round pick in the deal for Rodgers.
The conversations between the two teams have cooled in recent weeks, with ESPN's Adam Schefter on Tuesday reporting, "There hasn’t been a whole lot of conversation, if any, over the last couple of weeks, going back to the owner's meetings" in late March. Schefter added the standoff could continue after the NFL Draft (April 27 - 29).
