A potential Aaron Rodgers-Jets union is getting closer.
After Jets brass, led by owner Woody Johnson, took a private jet to California to meet with the Packers quarterback on Tuesday, there’s optimism in the organization that they’re on the brink of landing the future Hall of Famer, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini.
On Tuesday, Johnson, general manager Joe Douglas, head coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett took a private jet to California to meet with Rodgers amid flirtations with the four-time MVP.
The Jets feel “they are on the brink” of acquiring Rodgers in a franchise-altering move.
Johnson reportedly felt that it was important to meet with Rodgers in person, and left the meeting “excited and satisfied about the potential match.”
The Jets and the Packers remain engaged in conversations about compensation and contract.
Rodgers, 39, has $110 million left on his contract extension that he signed with Green Bay last spring. The reigning two-time MVP is due $59.5 million in guaranteed money this year and another $49.25 million in 2024.
The Jets hired Hackett, Rodgers’ former offensive coordinator in Green Bay, in January.
