Pro Bowler Responds to Jets Recruiting Plea From Aaron Rodgers

The recruiting trail is getting hot and heavy already.

Veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers was asked about the floating wish list presented by ESPN Insider Dianna Russini consisting of players he’d like to see the New York Jets target this offseason.

One of the names on that list was free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Pat McAfee asked Rodgers about his thoughts on OBJ being featured.

“First off, who wouldn’t want Odell on their team? Like, come on.”

With the power of the internet, it didn’t take long for OBJ to respond to Rodgers’ message.

Odell simply said in reply to the viral video on Twitter, “hey” with a waving hand emoji sparking rumors of a potential pairing in the big apple.

Hey 👋

Former NFL GM Links Jets to OBJ

Former NFL general manager Randy Mueller joined me on my podcast on Thursday, March 16, and revealed how impressed he was with OBJ at his NFL workout in Arizona.

“I saw that video too and he looked impressive to me. I do think there will be a market for him [and] I don’t think it’s going to be $15 million [per year]. I don’t think anyone is going to pay that price. There will be some conditions involved with it [his contract]. He is in a good spot in that he should be able to pick a team that is pretty good and be able to produce [and reach] those [contract] incentives to pay him up to that $15 million number.

He’s going to have to earn some of those and prove that he can be productive and durable to get to that number. I think there will be some teams that want to do it and I think there will be good teams. Maybe even a team like the Jets? I think a team will sign him before the draft.”

That contract number that Randy pointed out came from Russini who reported OBJ is seeking a contract that will pay him between $15 million and $20 million per season.

The New York Giants might not be interested in an OBJ reunion, but Russini did say on Friday, March 17 that the “other New York team” has expressed interest and has been “staying in touch with his side.”

The other New York team, the New York Jets interested and staying in touch with his side, per source. https://t.co/A6AcT0YhCE
