What’s going on here?

The Aaron Rodgers saga trudges on.
Picture: entry level

Friday shall be a month since Aaron Rodgers emerged from his retirement at nighttime and advised the world that he needed a special employer. His look on the Pat McAfee Present shall be 4 weeks outdated on wednesday and we have not seen any progress on a deal between the Jets and Packers. I get it, simply because the general public would not know concerning the plan doesn’t suggest there is not one, after all. However what would not leak out at this level? Or would Rodgers not communicate brazenly about it? with one in every of your mates for the world to see?

So now the query is why the heck is it taking so lengthy for each side to finish this deal? It ought to be easy. rodgers He would not need to play in Inexperienced Bay. He prefers to go to East Rutherford, New Jersey as a result of the whole lot stinks, not simply cheese heads. Each groups want to regulate rosters across the 39-year-old airhead’s acquire or loss. Inexperienced Bay would start their journey to hopefully discover a third straight long-term starter who would win over the followers and then he turns into a lunatic. The Jets hope Rodgers and his love of ayahuasca will lead them again to the postseason. However for the previous 4 weeks, and doubtless longer in personal, the groups have not made any tangible progress.

Packers president Mark Murphy spoke concerning the scenario in Inexperienced Bay on Tuesday, saying talks had been ongoing and he could not say greater than that. Though there may be not a deadline to finish the deal, each side have to know that if it isn’t finished initially of subsequent week’s NFL Draft, it can severely harm each side. Jordan Love seems to be the inheritor obvious in Inexperienced Bay and deciding on an offensive lineman or tight finish appears to be in the perfect curiosity for the group at No. 15, with Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs working to this point. The Jets even have No. 13 and Packers basic supervisor Brian Gutekunst has stated the group is not demanding that choose from New York to amass Rodgers, although that would definitely make issues simpler between the perimeters.

Oddly sufficient, Murphy’s first offseason as a Packers the president was in 2008, when the group switched from Brett Favre to Rodgers because the group’s starter. Favre additionally needed to see how inexperienced the the grass was in East Rutherford. Now Rodgers, after who is aware of what number of extra darkish retreats, nonetheless needs to do the identical. Because the clock from suburban Rodgers to Jersey ticks all the way down to the twenty ninth on Wednesday, let’s finish this ordeal. So we are able to all do higher than be on Rodgers’ watch, like scrapbooking. Oh how am I kidding? I would like this to finish so we are able to speak about any mess Rodgers makes together with his new pals.
