If you have been following Woodward Sports you know by now what I think of Aaron Rodgers. He is the most overrated QB in NFL History. Except in one area. He is certainly the club house leader in being a Diva Teammate.
His “I’m better than you” attitude has been on display for the past 3 years. Not showing to training camp and offseason workouts with new WR’s, only to complain he doesn’t have rhythm with them. Not letting team management know if he will even be the QB next season. The list for the Packers goes on and on.
Now the New York Jets have decided to deal with his red flags. Thinking that they can change him. Kind of like a girl and a deadbeat, “He will be different with me.”
The Jets are quickly learning that Aaron doesn’t care about anyone but Aaron.
Aaron Rodgers isn’t even on the Jets but he is telling them to pursue certain people in Free Agency.
Aaron Rodgers has provided the NY Jets with a wish-list of free agents he would like them to target and acquire, per sources.
It includes Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, Marcedes Lewis and….Odell Beckham Jr.

But the Jets are enabling Rodgers and laying down before he has even signed a contract.
Its really quite remarkable. A guy that is in a clear regression in his career. Couldn’t beat the Detroit Lions in the last game of the 2022 season to make the playoffs. And had a career high INT game vs the Lions. Is able to command so much.
I will say one good thing about Aaron. Thanks to him Pat McAfee is coming to Detroit thanks to a bet placed on Twitter with myself and Woodward Sports. But that’s about all the compliments I have.
I would never want this guy near the culture that Dan Campbell and Brad Holmes are building here in the Motor City. The fact that the Lions put the final nail in the coffin will make me smile for years to come.
So Aaron, if you’re reading this, keep being you! If teams are stupid enough to deal with your toxic locker room antics, LIVE IT UP! Take that money, ruin what’s left of your tarnished image. The train wreck is awesome to watch from the outside. But this is Aarons brand and it seems as if he will double down to make sure it stays that way.
Good luck to the Jets trying to Fix the deadbeat. I’m sure he will change just for you (if I could write in sarcasm I would)
