Aaron Rodgers sets the record straight on his future with the Jets
The internet has been buzzing the past few days after Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, made an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show and hinted at wanting to play for the New York Jets in the future. This caused quite the stir, as Rodgers has been a trusted and beloved player in Green Bay ever since he was drafted in 2005. But, as always, actions speak louder than words and Rodgers recently sat down with the Action Packed News crew to clear things up.
In the exclusive interview with APW, Rodgers shared that his comments on the Kimmel show were taken out of context. He clarified that he is fully dedicated to the Packers and plans on playing for them for another 2-3 years. However, he did mention that the Jets are a team that intrigues him, especially with their recent addition of former 49ers defensive coordinator, Robert Saleh, as their head coach. With a talented roster and new coach, Rodgers admits that the Jets could be a strong contender in the near future.
How the Jets and Rodgers became the talk of the town
After ESPN released their list of potential trade destinations for Rodgers, which included the Jets as a top contender, the buzz continued to grow. Many fans and analysts alike were quick to speculate and share their thoughts on the matter. But Rodgers is setting the record straight and making it clear that his focus is on the Packers, not any potential trades.
While the Jets remain a talented and promising team, Rodgers made it known that there are currently no plans in place for him to leave Green Bay. He remains dedicated to the team and is focused on helping them win another Super Bowl. So, for now, fans of both the Packers and the Jets will have to put any Rodgers-Jets trade talks to rest and continue to enjoy Rodgers’ skills on the field for the foreseeable future.
