The Jets had to give up their overall picks No. 13 (Round 1), 42 (Round 2), 207 (Round 6) and a conditional 2024 second-round pick that becomes a first-round pick if Rodgers plays 65% of the snapshots. .
Essentially, New York gave up their 2024 first-round pick as well. Douglas is happy, though, because it means they still have Rodgers.
“We’re comfortable with the way this deal has been shaped and any negotiation, I don’t think anyone walks away from a negotiation where you feel like you’ve won everything in terms of what has come and gone,” Douglas said. “Ultimately our goal from the beginning was to add Aaron to the team and we were able to achieve that, we agreed to terms yesterday and we are excited to have him here as soon as possible.”
The Jets also acquired the overall picks No. 15 (Round 1) and 170 (Round 5) from the Packers as part of the trade.
