The Green Bay Packers still haven’t traded Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets, although it sure feels like it could be coming soon.
One potential sign is that Allen Lazard is set to sign with the Jets, according to Jordan Schultz of The Score.
Lazard has been one of Rodgers’ best receivers in recent years, so it’s no surprise he is reportedly signing with the Jets.
Which other Packers players could potentially join Rodgers and Lazard in New York?
According to ESPN’s Dianna Russini, Rodgers has given the Jets a wish-list, and that includes multiple Packers free agents.
The Jets have already made one happen with Lazard reportedly signing with the team. And it looks like they may continue to bring in the players Rodgers would like to join him.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Randall Cobb is “expected to be on their radar”.
Again, not surprising. Rodgers wanted Cobb back in Green Bay a couple of years ago, and the Packers traded for him.
Now a free agent, it makes sense that the Jets would sign one of Rodgers’ favorite ever receivers.
Rodgers also loves Marcedes Lewis, one of the best blocking tight ends in the NFL and a leader in the locker room.
Schefter reported that the Jets are interested in signing Lewis.
So it sure seems possible Rodgers gets three of his Packers teammates to join him in New York, assuming he is traded to the Jets.
Imagine they also got Odell Beckham Jr.
That could be some offense in New York.
Rodgers would be throwing to NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Garrett Wilson, three-time Pro Bowler Odell Beckham, and two of his favorite targets in Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb. They’d also have 2021 second-round pick Elijah Moore.
At running back, they would have a young star in Breece Hall, who would’ve been in the Offensive Rookie of the Year conversation had it not been for injury.
But first, Rodgers needs to actually get traded to the Jets.
