Rodgers to Jets stuck on the runway
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Will he stay? Will he retire? Fans (and NFL front offices) will have to wait a little longer for a decision from Aaron Rodgers on his future.
It appeared early Monday afternoon that a decision had been made. In a tweet, ESPN host Trey Wingo reported "Rodgers to the Jets is done." Wingo is considered to have broken last week's news that the Jets were flying to California to meet with Rodgers and convince him to sign with the team.
Hearing Rodgers to the Jets is done. History about to repeat itself between New York and Green Bay. Time is indeed a flat circle— trey wingo (@wingoz) March 13, 2023
Soon after, Jets players reacted to the report. Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson telling his followers that they should "see the smile" on his face.
Y’all shud see this smile on me rn ?— Garrett Wilson (@GarrettWilson_V) March 13, 2023
But other NFL reporters jumped in to refute Wingo's scoop. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted that his sources indicated that "nothing had happened."
I wish it did. I wish something had happened. But nothing has happened. https://t.co/VqlmRbonxa— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 13, 2023
Late in the afternoon, ESPN's Adam Schefter said on the air that there are "mounting indications" that Rodgers is heading to the Jets.

At the end of business hours on Monday, there was nothing official. Only speculation that Rodgers has played his last snap with the Packers, which is exactly where most fans began the day.
