Where will the quarterbacks land?
Let's check in with our resident NFL scout. Jim Monos offers his thoughts on Aaron Rodgers, the Packers and the rest of the quarterbacks in flux.
And, now, for a front-office perspective.
Aaron Rodgers is officially out of the darkness in Oregon. We can assume he’ll be speaking with the Green Bay Packers soon, and difficult conversations will commence.
With things likely to move fast, we wanted to fire up a two-parter with Jim Monos on our flagship podcast. He’s been a scout with the Eagles, the Saints and served as the director of personnel with the Buffalo Bills before taking on his current role as the XFL’s head of football ops.
Monos’ take on Rodgers may surprise you, too. In Part I, we discuss the Packers.
This will be the first domino.
In Part II? Everyone else. The New York Jets had very nice things to say about Derek Carr, but actions speak louder than words. With Nate Hackett on board as OC, they may wait to see what Rodgers wants to do. Then, there’s Lamar Jackson in Baltimore and Daniel Jones in New York. The Ravens made some very strategic changes to their coaching staff, which Jackson should like. Jones? He should ask for 45 million a year — why not? This is his chance to earn every penny possible. In the end, Jones and the Giants are best together right now.
