We are all excited about trading with Aaron Rodgers. Some because of the importance to the New York Jets or the Green Bay Packers, others simply because we don’t need to hear about it anymore. The most excited person when the trade collapsed was ESPN insider Adam Schefter because he was able to break the news live on TV. And be NFL Live Co-hosts were stunned when it happened.
Adam Schefter shocked his ‘NFL Live’ co-hosts with breaking news about Aaron Rodgers’ trade
Aaron Rodgers’ trade saga has been going on for months, and NFL insiders have repeatedly pointed to this week as D-Day in negotiations. That’s because the 2023 NFL draft starts Thursday, and if the Packers wanted picks for 2023, they would have to close the deal before April 27.
However, most NFL analysts pointed to Wednesday or even Thursday or Friday as the deadline for the deal. It’s one of the reasons ESPN-NFL insider Adam Schefter looked as shocked as anyone when he checked his phone Monday afternoon NFL Live.
“Oh Laura. We’ve got breaking news right now,” Schefter announced breathlessly NFL Live Host Laura Rutledge during a segment on a potential deal with Trey Lance. “Breaking news. Aaron Rodgers is officially traded to the New York Jets. And it just came down in a six pick trade moments ago. Aaron Rodgers is making a move to the New York Jets. It’s official. It’s happening, finally!”
Then Schefter really nailed his co-hosts when he revealed the details of the trade.
“The Jets are sending their first-round pick this year,” Schefter began dramatically. This prompted co-host Marcus Spears to yell, “I told you so!” while Rutledge, Mina Kimes and Dan Orlovsky all made stunned faces.
“Hold on! Big Swagu, hold on!” Schefter yelled at Spears.
The insider then explained that the Jets are giving up first-, second-, and sixth-round picks in 2023 and a conditional second-round pick (which could become a first) in 2024, but getting back a first- and fifth-round pick in 2023, essentially making up the first this year a trade-back and the sixth a one-round trade-up.
If following all of this in writing is a bit difficult for you, check out Schefter’s NFL co-hosts trying to figure out what actually happened to Aaron Rodgers’ trade in real-time Twitter videos above.
Schefter continued reading straight from his phone, trying to explain the complicated trade to his ESPN colleagues once he understood. He also added that the conditional pick for the second round in 2024 “will become a one if Rodgers plays 65% of the games that year.”
After Schefter caught his breath, Kimes rubbed their hands together in thought, Spears took a long drag from his water bottle and Orlovsky’s face remained stunned. Only Rutledge, the pro that she is, bounced back quickly and began breaking down the trade for viewers.
It was a hilarious moment that ESPN will likely repeat for a long time.
