Aaron Rodgers taking a huge price cut could be a game-changer for the New York Jets.
On Friday, July 28, Joe Caporoso of “Badlands” came on my radio show in Syracuse called “The Manchild Show with Boy Green” and offered Gang Green a potentially lucrative trade.
“Could you sit through Mike Evans if the [Tampa Bay Buccaneers] tank early in the season?” For more information on a possible deal between the Bucs and Jets, I decided to contact Caporoso via Twitter.There’s always a way to improvise. The ability to trade into 2025, stockpile mid-round picks, and use players. I don’t want to rule out anything, and they have two years in which to be as aggressive as possible. From the Jets’ standpoint, things are made more difficult by a lack of elite-level resources.
The first two picks that Gang Green has in the 2024 NFL draft are unavailable for trade at this time. In exchange for Aaron Rodgers, the New York Jets sent a conditional second-round pick to the Green Bay Packers.If he plays in 65.5 percent of the team’s offensive snaps during the 2023 season, he will be promoted to the first round. That is to say, the Jets would need to get resourceful in order to pull off a deal for Evans or any other flashy name.
Earn 7% in the form of a lifetime income and insurance protection. Evans is currently 29 years old and will turn 30 before the 2023 season begins. Next summer, he will be a free agency after playing out the final year of his $82.5 million contract.
This offseason, the Jets discussed potentially signing wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who was a free agency. According to “The Can’t-Wait Podcast” interview with Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic, several folks working there thought it was a done deal.Then, at the eleventh hour, the Baltimore Ravens made a bid that the Jets weren’t willing to match.
According to what I’ve been informed, veteran wide receiver Corey Davis would have been dismissed or dealt if OBJ had signed with the New York GiantDespite the team’s public statements, Davis’s status on the squad is still uncertain at this time.
He owns a Super Bowl ring, started his career with nine consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, and has been nominated for the Pro Bowl four times. Evans is a rival as well.No longer will Tom Brady throw the football to him. Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask are the two remaining notable quarterbacks on the Bucs’ roster. If things go poorly for the Bucs early in the season, they could be tempted to trade Evans for a valuable asset to avoid losing him for free in the offseason.Evans’ addition to the Jets’ receiving corps would provide size and star power. It would be a relief for Garrett Wilson and provide the offense a another tool to use against stout defenses.Not many clubs sign temporary players like Evans, but the Jets have made it apparent that they intend to compete for a playoff spot this year.
