Aaron Rodgers Given Permission To Speak With Jets

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones tried to dissuade the Jets from recruiting QB Aaron Rodgers on Tuesday. If reports are to be believed, it’s too little too late.

Aaron Rodgers is in the middle of his annual offseason dance between leaving Green Bay and re-signing. He surprised everyone last season by returning for another year when it looked like he’d move to a new city.

Aaron Jones says Aaron Rodgers is still a Packer until a contract is signed with someone else.

“I hope he is not going nowhere,” Aaron Jones said.

“Especially not Vegas. You know he played with Tae (Davante Adams), so I hope that wouldn’t happen. He’s my quarterback, so I hope he’s back. If he’s back, we are ready to ball with him. If not, then we have Jordan Love, who’s more than capable, and he’s ready to ball as well and ready for his shot.

“I definitely keep seeing that everywhere the Jets want him, but as of right now, he’s in Green Bay if he comes back and plays,” Jones said. “I don’t want him going anywhere. You guys (Jets fans) can have one of those veteran quarterbacks. Jimmy G, he’s a winner and they can win with him. I like Jimmy G.”

However the same day Jones spoke, reports emerged asserting Aaron Rodgers had received permission to speak with the Jets. It appears the Packers are prepared for his departure, with GM Brian Gutekunst talking up the qualities of Jordan Love at last week’s NFL scouting combine.

“We’re excited about him,” Gutekunst said. “I’ve expressed to a lot of people that he needs to play. That’s the next step in his progression. Jordan’s done a great job, worked really hard so he’s doing everything we’re asking.”
