Aaron Rodgers didn't have much luck attracting superstar wide receivers to the Green Bay Packers.
In 2018, Allen Robinson almost joined the Packers but ended up choosing to sign with the division-rival Chicago Bears. In 2021, Peter Schrager of FOX Sports reported that the Packers made a "very aggressive pitch" to sign Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham chose the Los Angeles Rams.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported last season that Green Bay made "aggressive attempts" to trade for wide receiver Chase Claypool and tight end Darren Waller before the NFL trade deadline.
Despite the Packers always being in the mix, they rarely were able to pull off a move for a big-time wide receiver addition.
Unfortunately for Aaron Rodgers, a similar situation is playing out with the New York Jets.
Rodgers almost became a teammate with Beckham for the second time. Just a day before Beckham was reportedly due to meet with the Jets, he signed with the Baltimore Ravens.
And now another star wide receiver hinted at not wanting to move to the Jets.
Aaron Rodgers: Is another star wide receiver about to reject soon-to-be former Packers QB?
In an interview with the All Things Covered podcast for CBS Sports, five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was asked about potential trade destinations, one of them being the New York Jets.
Let's just say that Hopkins didn't look too impressed when the Jets were brought up.
Hopkins hinted at preferring a move to the Buffalo Bills or Kansas City Chiefs, while seemingly giving a negative response when asked about the New England Patriots.
Of course, the Arizona Cardinals could still trade Hopkins to the Jets or Patriots, but it's hard to imagine Hopkins not having a say on his future team, should he get traded.
After missing out on Beckham, it would seem Hopkins also won't be joining the Jets.
The Packers were unable to make deals with star receivers in recent years, and it seems Aaron Rodgers' new team is finding a similar problem.
