Not yet official, but all signs pointing to an Aaron Rodgers trade to the Jets

Trey Wingo (who was the first to indicate the Jets had spoken to Aaron Rodgers last week) has tweeted that the deal is “done.” We’ve heard the same thing, albeit not quite as definitively.

Meanwhile, various Jets players are dropping hints about it on Twitter, from cornerback Sauce Gardner to running back Breece Hall to receiver Garrett Wilson to tackle Mekhi Becton.

The evidence is largely circumstantial. It hit our radar screen because Rodgers is involved in trying to persuade one or more free agents to join the Jets. Gardner hinted at “package deals” last week, if Rodgers were to accept a trade to the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: 

There is enough smoke here to start processing the fantasy implications of an Aaron Rodgers trade to the Jets. Garrett Wilson, Elijah Moore, and Corey Davis are all under contract, and all three would get a boost if Rodgers is under center in 2023. As for Rodgers, he'll have a chance to rebound from his QB15 finish last season, though he's still dealing with a relatively raw receiving corps. Davis is a productive vet, while Wilson was one of the top rookie receivers in 2022, so this does look like an upgrade from his weapons in Green Bay. Jordan Love will finally get his chance to start, though he's expected to be a downgrade from Rodgers in his first season as the starter. The Packers will likely try to establish a strong running game to take the pressure off of Love.
