NFL fans hold their collective breath as Aaron Rodgers decision looms
Aaron Rodgers has yet to make a decision on what he wants to do for the 2023 season and beyond.
Signs appear to point to Rodgers taking the New York Jets from the Green Bay Packers in a deal that would change the landscape for both franchises. While Caesar Sportsbook’s Trey Wingo tweeted Monday that the deal was “done” and SNY reported Saturday that a deal was “essentially done,” other NFL reporters said nothing has happened yet.

An ESPN report before the “legal tender” period began noted that the Jets and Packers don’t know what Rodgers is going to do. Another report said the Jets are “cautiously optimistic” the four-time NFL MVP will agree to a trade with an AFC East team that hasn’t won an NFL playoff game since the 2010 season.
As the NFL world awaits Rodgers’ decision, some fans have expressed frustration with his wait.
Rodgers told former NFL star Brandon Marshall, co-host of the “I Am Athlete” podcast, that his decision will be made soon and to “stay tuned.”

When asked how long the entire NFL world would have to wait, Rodgers replied, “Well, I think it won’t be long. There’s a time frame for all of this.”
“It’s always interesting to meet important figures in sports. That’s what I’m giving you. Stay tuned.”
Rodgers said after the Packers lost to the Detroit Lions in Week 18 that he won’t hold the franchise hostage as he makes his decision.
“I will not hold them hostage,” he said. “I understand we’re still in January, March is free agency. Just need some time, like I said, to get the emotions out and figure out what’s best.”
Since then, Rodgers has gone behind a dark and neither the Jets nor the Packers have made eye-popping news with the opening of the “legal tampering” period.
