He Green Bay Packers traded star quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets, ending the infallible Hall of Famer’s 18-season streak in the famous frozen tundra.

The most anticipated move of the NFL offseason came to fruition when the four-time MVP parted ways with the club that drafted him in 2005 to take the place of another Green Bay legend, Brett Favre.

He led the Packers to a 2011 Super Bowl victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and made Green Bay a perennial contender.

Rodgers has thrown 475 touchdown passes, the fifth most in NFL history, and would be the active career leader as long as Tom Brady remains retired. His 59,055 passing yards rank No. 9 in NFL history and second among active signal calls, behind only matt ryan.

Rodgers had expressed his continued dissatisfaction with Green Bay’s management in recent years for allegedly not surrounding him with more talent that could have given the team more playoff wins.

The situation came to a head in March, following another disappointing season in which the Packers failed to make the playoffs, when Rodgers publicly announced on «The Pat McCaffee Show» his desire to play for the Jets.

His penchant for outspoken criticism of his coaches and teammates has made Rodgers a polarizing figure in the NFL. And he has also gained notoriety for refusing to be vaccinated against Covid-19, after hinting that it could have been saying that he had been «immunized».

His arrival in East Rutherford, New Jersey, will give Long-suffering Gang Green fans hope for a better future. The team has not qualified for the playoffs since the 2010-11 season and is now in a streak of seven in a row lost campaigns.

To nab Rodgers, the Jets gave the Packers a slew of 2023 draft picks, including first- and second-round picks.
