Rodgers recently agreed to take a massive pay cut with the team to free up $35 million. As a result, the Jets can put more talent around their new superstar. The veteran quarterback admitted that is the reason for the pay cut, as it gives the team some flexibility to add star players, as he told Peter King of Football in America via Pro Football Talk.

“Big names move at the trade deadline now,” Rodgers said. “I wanted to make sure that if somebody valuable came available that we’d be able to get him.”

Although the NFL trade deadline is way down the line, with the 2023 NFL season yet to get underway, the Jets could be on the cusp of signing four-time Pro Bowl running back Dalvin Cook.
