Aaron Rodgers to the Jets: Latest Futures

39-year-old Aaron Rodgers has been traded to the New York Jets after weeks of speculation.  He was so certain to be a Jet, oddsmakers had already posted odds of New York winning the Super Bowl within the top five.  The Jets pay out $1200 for every $100 bet as of April 24, 2023.


The Jets and Packers agreed to a trade Monday, 40 days after Rodgers publicly declared his desire to join the team.

Rodgers is scheduled to make nearly $60 million in 2023 but is expected to renegotiate that deal before coming to the Jets.

Some of the Most Sought After Odds

Last year, the folks who set odds for a living thought Aaron Rodgers played his final game in Green Bay as a member of the Packers back in January 2022.

Rodgers returned and, despite a rough season, could have slipped into the playoffs in the final game of the 2022 regular slate with a Packers victory over Detroit.  That didn't happen.

Rodgers has not made any decision about whether he intends to continue his NFL career in 2023, but did hint at potentially sticking around with a reworking of his contract.

Rodgers has $59.465 million guaranteed if he plays in 2023, as part of the three-year, $150 million contract extension he signed in March. It carries a salary-cap charge of $31,623,570 for next season.

"There's a lot of teams, because of COVID, that are strapped, and you're seeing with a lot of different contracts, they're pushing more money out in deals," Rodgers said on the "The Pat McAfee Show" Tuesday. "They're creating void years to allow for an easier cap hit, so there would have to be some adjustments, for sure."

While it's not impossible to trade Rodgers, the contract as written does make it difficult.
