What Does The Deal Signify For The Packers?

What Aaron Said

Aaron has voiced his wish to get more involved in the direction of the team for a long time. He also did not hold back his frustration playing for the Packers and made his intentions clear about leaving the club. Last month, he appeared on an episode of The Pat McAfee Show. There, he clearly stated that he wishes to play for the New York Jets. Therefore, he claimed that he does not want to hold anything back. 

Commenting on the club’s role, he claimed that the Packers have expressed their desire to let me go, in various ways. Therefore, according to him, the club also wants him to move on. As reports suggest, the star quarterback will not have his iconic number 18 jersey at the Jets. Joe Namath wore that number for the Jets and as he retired from the team, the club retired his jersey number.

However, Joe has expressed his intention to unretire his jersey number for Aaron. But as things stand now, Aaron is expected to don the number 8 jersey for the Jets. In fact, this is the jersey number which he wore during his college days at the University of California. Therefore, now let us see when the deal gets finalised and what jersey Aaron gets to don for the Jets.
