Aaron Rodgers trade tracker: Latest news, rumors on Jets, Raiders, as QB determines NFL future

Out of the darkness and into the light, Aaron Rodgers’ future is just in sight.

For the fourth straight year, rumors have been swirling about Rodgers and his future at Green Bay. While the quarterback recently said that a decision about his next move will be “soon enough,” soon enough isn’t, well, pretty soon enough.

Rodgers’ indecisiveness about his next move has opened a window for other teams to at least discuss a trade with Green Bay. First, New York: The Jets are reportedly hot for an experienced quarterback, and after missing out on Derek Carr, Rodgers would make sense as a next option.

The Raiders, who sacked Carr, have their own QB gap to fill, but it’s unclear if Vegas is a good fit for the 39-year-old Rodgers, who likely wants a win-now option as he enters the twilight of his career entry.

Apparently, the teams called the Packers to trade for Rodgers, but his complex contract could be a hurdle in closing a deal. With his 2023 advance money putting some teams off, Green Bay has yet to find the right trading partner for the quarterback.

Unsurprisingly, Rodgers is at the top of the Raiders’ wish list for 2023, according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano. Las Vegas is also making calls with free agent Jimmy Garoppolo and maybe Mac Jones. However, the latter seems unlikely.
