If the New York Jets are unwilling to meet the Green Bay Packers' asking price for Aaron Rodgers, GM Brian Gutekunst should pick up the phone and contact other teams about a potential trade.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reported on ESPN Milwaukee show Wilde and Tausch that the Packers want a 2023 second-round pick and a 2024 first-rounder in the Aaron Rodgers trade.

For now, trade negotiations between the Packers and Jets appear to be stuck.

What happens next? What if the Jets are unwilling to pay up for Rodgers? The Packers should pick up the phone and contact these three teams.

Packers should contact Patriots about Aaron Rodgers trade

Aaron Rodgers and Bill Belichick? That sounds like a Super Bowl-winning combination.

Belichick's New England Patriots have dominated the New York Jets over the years. Stealing Rodgers from them would go down as his greatest victory over the Jets to date.

Rodgers would make New England contenders in the AFC East. If the Patriots were willing to give up a 2024 first-rounder, they could keep hold of the 14th overall pick in this year's draft, a selection that could go towards an offensive playmaker to help Rodgers.

If the Patriots are unsure about Mac Jones' long-term future, perhaps they would be willing to go all-in on Aaron Rodgers.
