Jets and Packers ‘stand still’ over Aaron Rodgers deal with New York

Jets and Packers “stand still” on Aaron Rodgers’ trade with New York, believing “they’re offering a lot,” but Green Bay doesn’t see it and “requests a first-round draft pick.”

There has reportedly been no movement between the New York Jets and the Green Bay Packers when it comes to brokering a trade for star quarterback Aaron Rodgers ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Schefter made the comments while appearing on Wednesday’s NFL Live.

“Both sides have stalled in their talks,” Schefter said. “There was a standoff with Green Bay, who wanted more than the Jets were offering.

“The Jets feel they offer a lot. The Packers feel they are not offering enough and the two sides are standing still.

Rodgers reveled in wanting to play for the Jets last week while appearing on The Pat McAfee Show.

When Schefter was asked if he had any information on the specifics of the trade offers discussed, he said: “They’ve been going back and forth about it and they haven’t spoken much in the last week but it certainly sounds like the Green Bay Packers want a first-round draft pick somewhere in this trade, and that’s not all.

“So it’s up to the Jets to figure out what they’re comfortable with and what the Packers are comfortable accepting, and then the two sides can go from there.”

The Jets were the only team interested in trading for Rodgers and don’t feel the need to give up a first-round pick for a player who will likely only be on the team for a season or two.

Last week, two well-known Packers insiders reported that the deal was “99 percent complete” and that Rodgers could be in New York “as early as next week.”

Wednesday marked the halfway point of that “next week,” and the Jets made headlines by making two different moves instead.

New York first signed former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman to a one-year deal worth $6.5 million, trading former second-round draft pick Elijah Moore and a third-round pick for a second-round pick that year against the Cleveland Browns NFL draft.

Multiple reports indicated that signing Hardman didn’t take the Jets out of the conversation for star WR Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham and Rodgers are reportedly close and would love to play together.

A report released Thursday also found that the Jets are one of the bottom three teams in the contest for the All-Pro leading back Ezekiel Elliot, alongside the Cincinnati Bengals and the Philadelphia Eagles.
