David Bakhtiari faces an uncertain future with the Green Bay Packers.

The All-Pro left tackle enters his age-32 season this fall, and with a huge cap hit to come in 2024, the Packers should consider moving on from their dominant pass protector in the near future.

Interestingly, the New York Jets would be an ideal landing spot for Bakhtiari, reuniting him with former Packers teammate and close friend Aaron Rodgers. The Jets have concerns at tackle and missed out on a top prospect in the first round of the draft after moving down two spots in the Rodgers deal.

The Jets are already sending a pick in either the first or second round to the Packers next offseason. That could complicate a deal for Bakhtiari.

To help create a trade proposal that would send Bakhtiari to the Jets, we asked AI to help out.

AI is pretty incredible, and it's scary how accurate it can be with its answers. However, it clearly still needs some work.

We asked ChatGPT to create a trade proposal with Bakhtiari going to the Jets. Its answer was, let's say, wishful thinking from a Packers' perspective.

Bakhtiari Trade

The trade sees New York give up defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, a 2024 third-round pick, and a 2025 fourth-round pick for David Bakhtiari.


No matter how much this would suit the Packers, it's never going to happen. The Jets aren't going to give up Williams, a 25-year-old All-Pro defensive tackle, and draft picks, for Bakhtiari.

Even when Bakhtiari was in his prime, this deal would've made no sense. That's especially true when you factor in his age, contract, and recent injury history.

But you never know. Packers GM Brian Gutekunst has already fleeced Jets GM Joe Douglas once already this offseason, landing two premium picks for Aaron Rodgers and a swap of 2023 firsts. Gutekunst negotiated a deal that sees Green Bay get a 2024 second-round pick at worst, but it becomes a first if Rodgers plays 65% of the snaps.

If a contending team like the Jets needs tackle help, making an offer for Bakhtiari makes sense. He could be the missing piece in a Super Bowl run. But the Packers should demand a good draft pick in return.

There's no way they are getting back what ChatGPT suggested, but it sure would be fun to watch Gutekunst fleece the Jets for the second time in the same offseason.
