Aaron Rodgers would be a mistake for the Giants
Ian Wharton of Complex Sports has written an article detailing different trade offers teams can make in order to acquire quarterback Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers.
Below is the offer that Wharton came up with for the New York Giants and a portion of what he wrote:
- WR Sterling Shepard
- 2022 first-round pick
- 2022 first-round pick (from Bears)
- 2023 first-round pick
- 2023 second-round pick
- Aaron Rodgers
Seeing the Giants pass on Justin Fields in order to give Daniel Jones another chance after being terrible in his first two seasons had to give fans massive pause about this regime. Jones has struggled dearly with turnovers and staying healthy. There’s a lack of natural feeling for the game with Jones, and his status as a developmental talent hasn’t changed.
Relegating Jones to the bench or auctioning him off for a mid-round pick (at best) in order to usher in Rodgers would be well worth the cost. Their trade down to land Kadarius Toney netted them an extra pick in 2022 to use, and their roster is good enough to justify losing some early selections. They can bolster the offensive line with veterans wanting to join Rodgers in the Big Apple.
That is a heck of an offer from the Giants. I don’t see how or why the Packers would turn it down if they truly believe in Jordan Love and want to move on from Rodgers.
When it comes to the Giants, this is way too much to give up for a 37 year-old quarterback that likely only has 2-3 more good years in him.
