SALT LAKE CITY – On the Pat McAfee show, Four-time NFL MVP Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that he intends to play for the New York Jets.

The transaction that would send the future Hall of Fame quarterback from the NFC to the AFC was reported on Monday, March 13, the same day that the league’s free agency negotiating window opened.

On Monday, April 24, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that a trade between the Jets and Packers had been agreed to.

By joining the Jets, Rodgers, 39, would play for another team not named the Packers for the first time in his professional career. The move also ends New York’s offseason search for a veteran quarterback. The Jets finished the 2022 season with a 7-10 record. New York missed the postseason for the 12th consecutive season. The last time the Jets reached the playoffs was in 2010 when they made it to the AFC Championship.

Before his time in the NFL, Rodgers was a standout player in college at Butte and Cal. Following his college career, Rodgers was selected by the Packers with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft.

Since he entered the league, Rodgers has accumulated multiple elite accolades including Super Bowl XLV champion, Super Bowl MVP, NFL MVP (2011, 2014, 2020, 2021), First-team All-Pro (four times), Second-team All-Pro, Pro Bowl (10 times), NFL passer rating leader (four times), NFL passer rating leader (twice), NFL completion percentage leader.

He owns NFL records for single-season passer rating, lowest interception percentage in a single season, consecutive passes without an interception, lowest career interception percentage, and career touchdown to interception ratio.

Rodgers helped the Packers to an 8-9 record in 2022. Green Bay missed the playoffs. Last season, Rodgers threw for 3,695 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 12 touchdowns with a 64.6 percent completion rate.

During his storied career, the California product has thrown for 59,055 yards, 475 touchdowns, and 105 interceptions with a completion rate of 65.3 percent.
