What would be a good return if they do trade Rodgers?
I keep going back and forth.
Personally speaking it depends how much return Gute and Co want or are willing to take in the future than the present. IF it is the Jets and we MUST have their #13 pick I don’t personally think we get another guaranteed 1st and I don’t think a guaranteed 2nd even honestly.
If we get the #13 I envision only Day 3 pick or so this year with everything in the future being conditionals like a 2024 3rd which goes to a 2nd if Rodgers plays say 75% of the 2023 season and only a first if Jets make playoffs, you try and get something similar in 2025 draft conditionally based on 2024. Maybe starts as a 5th, goes to 4th if he plays, 3rd it half the season, 2nd if make playoffs and 1st if gets to SB.
Me personally I’m Gute I tell Jets I’ll take your second and third this year plus next years 2nd that becomes a 1 if Jets make playoffs and give you Rodgers plus two of our sevenths this year.
That’s my baseline, I’d fight for something in 2025 conditional.
For the record I also feel out getting Mims back in return - Elijah Moore isn’t happening - I think it hilarious folks pretend Rodgers is getting us a Wilson type haul. Mims however is a guy I know we liked his draft year, is outside looking in on their depth and could fight for a spot here for sure.
Ruckert the just last year rookie from Wisconsin is another depth guy that could flourish into something to consider in a trade too back to us.
