NEW YORK. (Northern News Now) - The Green Bay Packers officially made a deal with the New York Jets.

Sources say on Monday quarterback and four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers has been traded to the New York Jets.

According to Adam Schefter, the two teams will are swapping their first-round picks, the 13th pick to the Packers for the 15th to the Jets.

The Packers will also get a conditional 2024 pick that will be a first-rounder if Rodgers plays 65 percent of plays, otherwise, it will be a second-round pick.

They will get the 42nd and 207th pick in the 2023 draft, with the Jets getting the 170th pick.

Schefter states Rodgers was given permission to wear No. 12 for the Jets from Hall of Famer Joe Namath.

However, he is expected to wear No. 8, a number he wore in college at the University of California, Berkley.

A year ago it seemed Rodgers wanted to finish his career in Green Bay as he signed a three-year $150 million contract extension in March 2022.

Now, the Jets will inherit the rest of his contract.

According to ESPN, it includes $59.465 million guaranteed in salary and bonus this season. Most is made up of the $58.3 million bonus that is due no later than Week 1 of the season.

Rodgers will receive $15.8 million in 2023 and $32.5 million in 2024.

It is unclear if Rodgers renegotiated his contract in the trade to New York.

The Packers are now expected to turn to Jordan Love, the 2020 first-round pick, who has spent the last three years as Rodgers’ backup.

Rodgers finished his last season with the Packers with 26 touchdowns and 3,695 yards.
