If Aaron Rodgers is looking for some revenge on the NY Giants after Big Blue embarrassed him in London last season, we really hope things don’t go the way he wants them to. It feels like Rodgers could end up heading to East Rutherford any minute now to begin the next chapter of his career with the New York Jets.
Having Rodgers in the same city as Daniel Jones would be bad enough. However, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini, Rodgers already has a list drawn up of free agents he’d like the NYJ to go after. On the list is former Giants star wideout Odell Beckham Jr.
Aaron Rodgers wanting Odell Beckham Jr. with the Jets is a nightmare
People have been laughing at Rodgers wanting a bunch of his friends with the Packers to join him with the Jets, but this Odell update has a lot of Big Blue supporters worried. The Giants were present at OBJ’s workout in Arizona earlier this month, which shows the G-Men still have interest in a reunion.
The Giants can sell Odell on the fact that not only could he make an immediate impact making plays for the newly-extended Jones, but it will also reunite him with Saquon Barkley and Sterling Shepard. Shep will be back on a one-year deal, while Saquon has been placed on the non-exclusive franchise tag.
As for the Jets, they could really turn Beckham’s head by letting him know he’d be able to get back to MetLife Stadium, but instead of catching passes from Jones, he’d be making plays for a future Hall of Famer in Rodgers.
First, the Jets are going to need to finalize things with AR12, but like we said above, it could happen at any moment. Once that does go down, the OBJ-to-the-Jets speculation is only going to grow. Giants fans don’t ever want to see that happen. A lot of people are going to be concerned about this moving forward.
