AARON RODGERS’ TEAMMATE DEFENDS PACKERS PLAYERS AMID CRITICAL TWIT ABOUT RECRUITING STAR QB
The NFL offseason leading up to the 2023 season is expected to be one of the most exciting in recent memory. It would be hard to top last year, as the NFL world saw Tom Brady retire and then rescinded, Russell Wilson was traded to the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs traded Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins.
However, so far this year, there has already been a major move.
Brady, this time, retired «for good.» Derek Carr signed with the New Orleans Saints after nine seasons with the Las Vegas Raiders. The Miami Dolphins have reportedly agreed to acquire Jalen Ramsey in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams. Lamar Jackson is hitting free agency as a restricted free agent, while Aaron Rodgers could be traded to the New York Jets or potentially retire entirely.
There will be a lot of moving parts in the days ahead.
