Why Jets negotiation tactics will cost them more in Aaron Rodgers trade
There was nothing easy about Aaron Rodgers divorcing with the Green Bay Packers and being able to sign papers with his new favorite team the New York Jets.
As long as former Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers fits in with the New York Jets in Week 1, the Green Gang will be fine.
While I’m all for Rodgers entering the Lou Reed phase of his life, let’s just hope Jack Kerouac doesn’t go everyone’s butt again. There are no wild caves in the Five Boroughs. In a strange way, the Jets and Rodgers are perfect for each other. They love the attention and would love to play some very competitive soccer this year. I think this marriage can work.
However, his negotiation tactics were bizarre every step of the way. Airplanes can burn.
The Jets have publicly gushed over their current QB, telling every other option QB they want to wait because they really want Aaron Rodgers.
They went out and met him without agreeing to a compensation trade, and now they’re upset that Green Bay is using that against them?

Rodgers is 100 percent their guy, but for a team that hasn’t made the playoffs since 2010, their whole approach to this is a bit of a letdown. Just finish the season (out)…
New York Jets recruiting Aaron Rodgers could end up being costly
look. Aircraft fans have been through enough. It’s becoming more than just Stockholm Syndrome at this point, so bless their weird green hearts. However, this has not been a franchise where quarterbacks go and thrive in the long run. Men will have success, but the Jets run through quarterbacks like the late Larry King did to Wives. This man was at the top of his craft.
I think the problem at hand here is that the planes have told everyone no. That’s fine, as long as you get your man. But until the T is crossed and the points are placed on the I, the Jets remain in no-man’s-quarterback territory. They have completely destroyed whatever business value Zack Wilson had at this point. The Jets also failed to understand that the Packers would play the ball aggressively.
Ultimately, I want this trade to happen so we can both move on with our lives. Stress is a terrible thing. It’s particularly painful for fans of a team caught between a rock and a hard place. Content creators are always looking for something new and interesting. I’m not going to lie, this is getting old. More importantly, it doesn’t do us any favors that Planes and Packers are bad at the same time.
With the first wave of free agency, the Packers and Jets can’t afford to miss out any longer.
