It’s another day in the NFL world as the sun has come up and the ongoing Aaron Rodgers trade saga continues. It’s been nearly a month since the Green Bay Packers star quarterback said that he “intended” to play for the Jets and he still has yet to be traded to New York. With the 2023 NFL Draft looming, a resolution is expected to come one way or another

Before leaving for the team’s annual bus tour of Wisconsin, Packers president Mark Murphy was asked point blank by reporters if the ball was in the Jets’ court regarding a potential Rodgers trade. Murphy sidestepped the question and said that he couldn’t get into that, but that he knows Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst and Jets GM Joe Douglas have been talking.

Murphy also wouldn’t say whether a trade needed to be made in the next two weeks, deferring to Gutekunst, while maintaining that he has been involved in talks, as Green Bay’s president wasn’t too keen on offering up many details.

“I anticipate there being quite a few questions,” Murphy said regarding being asked about the Rodgers trade dilemma on the bus tour. “And I anticipate saying there’s no update.”

Murphy said that it was interesting the Packers are in a similar situation as 15 years ago, with an obvious reference to Brett Favre.

“I’m really glad that Aaron Rodgers turned out to be such a good quarterback,” said Murphy. “I’m hopeful that Jordan Love turns out to be a similar quarterback.”

It remains to be seen if the Jets and Packers are able to get a trade done in the next 16-17 days, as the clock is ticking on a potential deal.
