New York Jets lose Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers lose high draft pick in 2024

Aaron Rodgers‘ season-ending Achilles tear has the New York Jets in shock, as they now have to turn back to their disappointing 2021 second overall pick Zach Wilson.

Watching from the other side of the Great Lakes, the Green Bay Packers surely didn’t want to see their former Hall of Fame quarterback go down like he did. It might not have been a completely amicable split, but Rodgers brought a Super Bowl to the franchise after all.

Once Rodgers was ruled out for the entire year following an MRI confirming the injury, the reality set in for the Packers that the trade package they received for Rodgers lost significant value in the process.

Which pick do the Packers get?

The stipulations of the April trade that brought Rodgers to New York included the quarterback playing at least 65% of the Jets’ snaps this season in order for the Packers to receive New York’s first round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Instead, the Packers will receive a second round pick.

It’s a very small silver lining for the Jets, but not one that anybody in that organization can console themselves with. The franchise lost their best chance at competing for a Super Bowl in 2023, and they still have to give away a second round pick for four total Rodgers snaps.

The Packers have already used a portion of their Rodgers trade package to draft EDGE Lukas Van Ness 13th overall and tight end Luke Musgrave 42nd overall in the 2023 NFL Draft.

It’s Wilson’s time to shine

Wilson came off the bench on Monday night and led the team to victory, although he still committed mistakes that have driven his coaches crazy through his first two seasons. Still, he did well given the circumstances

He has a great opportunity in front of him to re-route his career, which was heading in the wrong direction. Head coach Robert Saleh has already confirmed he will be the starter the rest of the season.
