Not only does Daniel Jeremiah see Aaron Rodgers becoming a New York Jets, but he thinks the trade cost will be surprisingly cheap

The NFL offseason is picking up steam with the Scouting Combine occurring this weekend in Indianapolis. All 32 teams are gathered together to learn about this year’s draft class.

While the focus is on the soon-to-be rookies, plenty of other exciting discussions are occurring in Indianapolis as well.

Jacob Morley, a writer for Packer Report, had a big takeaway after speaking with NFL Network analysts Daniel Jeremiah and Rich Eisen regarding Aaron Rodgers.

Morley reported that Jeremiah and Eisen believe Aaron Rodgers will be a New York Jet based on things they have heard “in the halls” of the combine.

It’s worth noting that Jeremiah worked with Jets general manager Joe Douglas on the Baltimore Ravens’ scouting staff for four years (2003-06).

Not only does Jeremiah see Rodgers landing in New York, but Jeremiah also said that he doesn’t believe it will cost a first-round pick to trade for Rodgers. This would be a best-case scenario for the Jets, as they can land a Hall of Fame quarterback while retaining the 13th overall pick to select a blue-chip player.

Trading a second-round pick or less for Rodgers would be a steal. Despite his age (39), Rodgers is only one season removed from being the back-to-back MVP. The Jets can use the 13th overall pick to improve the supporting cast around him.

While the Jets landing Rodgers may have seemed unlikely at the start of the offseason, it seems to be becoming increasingly possible.

Vic Tafur, a senior writer for The Athletic, reported that the Las Vegas Raiders have backed out of the Rodgers sweepstakes.

In response, Matt Schneidman, who reports on the Packers for The Athletic, said on Wednesday that Rodgers is down to three options: stay with the Packers, retire, or be traded to the Jets.

Things are still far from over. Rodgers remains undecided on his future and there have been rumors of the Carolina Panthers and Miami Dolphins checking in on Rodgers the last few days. However, neither team is considered likely to trade for Rodgers. The Panthers have the ninth overall pick and the Dolphins have Tua Tagovailoa.

It’s been almost 15 years since the Jets traded with the Packers for Brett Farve. Back then, landing Favre only cost the Jets a fourth-round pick despite him finishing second in the MVP race in the prior season. Favre was 37 at the time and turned 38 that October.

Before tearing his bicep and struggling for the remainder of the year, Favre was playing at a high level and had the Jets looking like legitimate Super Bowl contenders. The Jets entered Week 13 at 8-3 after beating an undefeated Titans team. The following season, New York would draft Mark Sanchez and make back-to-back AFC Championships.

The Jets seems to be heading in a similar direction 15 years later. If they land Rodgers, can they take the next step and win it all this time around?
