Aaron Rodgers Announces He Intends To Play For Jets In 2023

Mar 15, 2023 5:31 PM

Aaron Rodgers announced on Wednesday he intends to play for the New York Jets  in 2023.

Rodgers said he made the decision on Friday and is not holding up a trade, which still isn't finalized. The Jets are engaged with the Green Bay Packers on a trade, which will also include a restructured contract for Rodgers.

"I made it clear my intention was to play and to play for the New York Jets, and I haven't been holding anything up. It's the compensation that the Packers are trying to get. ... The Packers want to move on and have let me know that in so many words," he said.

Rodgers said he will always love the Packers organization but that it's clear it's time for a change.

"I f---ing love that city. I love that organization and always going to have love for that organization. The facts are right now they want to move on, and now so do I," he said.

He said his decision to leave Green Bay was "bittersweet."

"I got to be the starting quarterback of the Packers for 15 years. ... So, I love you, Green Bay. Thank you. I'm as sad as some of you are, but we'll meet again."

Only a year ago, Rodgers seemed destined to finish his career in Green Bay. After contemplating retirement following the 2021 season, he signed a three-year, $150 million contract extension in March 2022.

The New York Jets are optimistic they will acquire Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers, sources tell Dianna Russini of ESPN.
