Aaron Rodgers reveals his intentions to be on the Jets via PM show.
The NY media is insane with coverage of the 2 NFL teams. I know Rodgers has had the national media following his every move for over a decade but in NY you have that plus 2 sports radio stations, half a dozen papers, multiple tv stations plus local sports cable and to top it off obnoxious super fans that turn on their heroes at a drop of dime.My question is why the Jets? Does he think they can become contenders for the Super Bowl? I think it's a bad choice. He has not seen bad press until the N.Y. press starts gnawing at him when they lose 2 or 3 games in a row. He is a great player but I think he is putting himself in a no-win situation.
Here's the details of the trade. The Jets ended up not giving up as much as many thought they would. Given Rodgers' age it's understandable:Rodgers signed by Jets today.
This cracked me up, but honestly, as a Packer fan, I know Rodgers is that good. He will turn things around in NY.Aaron Rodgers Retires From Professional Football To Play With The Jets
NEW YORK, NY — Legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has officially signed with the New York Jets, confirming his retirement from professional football.
"You have to know when to walk away," said Rodgers. "I'm excited to put on a New York Jets jersey, and leave pro football in the rearview mirror."
Sources inside the Jets organization were reportedly shocked to receive the word from Rodgers. "How much peyote is he smoking??" asked General Manager Joe Douglas. "Eh, who cares. Even if he's high, just to have a legend like Rodgers on the field with us amateurs - it's going to be amazing. I know the NFL will be sad to lose him, but their loss is our gain."
Rodgers took months to make a final decision, laboring over whether it was time to hang up his cleats. "Professional football is an incredible grind," said Rodgers. "I've enjoyed my career tremendously, but in the end, I realized I was done with all the film watching, the practicing - that endless pursuit of perfection. Thankfully, I don't have to worry about any of that with the Jets. It's going to be an amazing change of pace."
At publishing time, Aaron Rodgers had asked if anyone had some psychedelics because he just sobered up enough to realize he had actually signed with the New York Jets.
