Friday will mark one month since Aaron Rodgers emerged from his darkness retreat and instructed the world he needed a distinct employer. His look on the Pat McAfee Present will probably be 4 weeks previous on Wednesday and we’ve seen no progress on a deal between the Jets and Packers in any respect. I get it, simply because the general public doesn’t know the plan doesn’t imply there isn’t one, positive. However what wouldn’t get leaked at this level? Or wouldn’t Rodgers overtly speak about it with one in all his buddies for the world to see?

So now the query is what the heck is taking either side so lengthy to finish this deal? It needs to be simple. Rodgers doesn’t need to play in Inexperienced Bay. He’d moderately go to East Rutherford, New Jersey as a result of every thing smells, not simply cheeseheads. Each groups want to regulate rosters across the loss or achieve of the 39-year-old airhead. Inexperienced Bay would begin its journey to hopefully discover a third straight long-term starter that endears himself to followers and then turns into a lunatic. The Jets would hope Rodgers and his love for Ayahuasca leads them again to the postseason. However for the previous 4 weeks, and possibly longer privately, the groups have made no tangible progress.

Packers president Mark Murphy talked in regards to the scenario in Inexperienced Bay on Tuesday and mentioned talks had been ongoing and he couldn’t say greater than that. Though there isn’t a deadline to finish the deal, either side should know if it doesn’t get completed by the start of subsequent week’s NFL Draft, it severely hampers either side. Jordan Love seems to be the inheritor obvious in Inexperienced Bay and deciding on an offensive lineman or tight finish appears to be within the crew’s greatest curiosity at No. 15, with each Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs panning out thus far. The Jets even have the No. 13 and Packers common supervisor Brian Gutekunst has mentioned the crew isn’t demanding that choose from New York to accumulate Rodgers, though that little doubt would make issues simpler between the perimeters.

Oddly sufficient, Murphy’s first offseason as Packers president was in 2008, when the crew switched from Brett Favre to Rodgers because the crew’s starter. Favre additionally needed to see how inexperienced the grass was in East Rutherford. Now Rodgers, after who is aware of what number of extra darkness retreats, nonetheless desires to do the identical. Because the Rodgers-to-Jersey-suburbs watch reaches day No. 29 on Wednesday, let’s simply finish this ordeal. Then we will all do one thing higher than be on Rodgers watch, like scrapbooking. Oh, how am I kidding? I would like this to be over so we will speak about no matter mess Rodgers makes together with his new buddies.
