Aaron Rodgers Trade Negotiations Could Run Until May Or June

Brian Gutekunst says quarterback Jordan Love is prepared to take over in the eventuality of Aaron Rodgers leaving the team.

The Green Bay Packers GM says by the time the organization spoke to Aaron Rodgers, his decision had been made.

The future Hall-of-fame quarterback is widely expected to join the New York Jets. However, Gutekunst isn’t holding out for a No.1 pick, nor is he in a hurry to get a deal done.

“Jordan’s been put in some tough situations, just like Aaron was way back in his time,” he said.

“I think it’s really a credit to Jordan how he’s handled that and how professional he’s been through this. Him and his representatives. We’ve been in constant communication with them and him. I think he’s got a really good outlook on this. He understands there’s so much out of his control. But I know he’s really preparing and he’s really excited for this opportunity, and we are, as well.

“You come out of the season, you have a lot of conversations,” Gutekunst said.

“Not only with Aaron but with the rest of the team, coaches and everybody. And as you go through that process, you kind of get an idea of where you’re going to move as a team. How you’re going to go forward. I think I was really looking forward to the conversations with Aaron to see how he fit into that. 

“Those never transpired. So there came a time where we kind of had to make some decisions. So, we went through his representatives to kind of talk to him about where we’re going with our team. And at that point, they informed us they would like to be traded to the Jets.”

“Yeah, I think so,” he said when asked if they could afford for negotiations to stretch into May or June. “There’s not much going on right now. So, I think it has to work for both parties, and we’re both committed to figuring that out. It’s really kind of in their court right now, so we’ll kind of see where it goes.”
