The most tangible evidence yet of the thaw between the Packers and Jets came on Monday, when Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst admitted his team wouldn’t necessarily get a first-round pick for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. This statement can be interpreted to some extent as an indication that the Packers have finally let go of their insistence on a Pack most notably surrendering the 13th overall pick in the upcoming draft.
But it also hints at a possible first-round pick in 2024, based on future events.

We’ve been told the Fighters were willing to give up a pair of second-round picks. As Robinson characterizes current talks, Green Bay will get a second-round pick in 2023 and a second-round pick in 2024, which could move to a first-round pick depending on how the Jets perform with Rodgers on the team in 2023.
Also another issue is the possibility that Rodgers, who claims he was 90 percent inclined toward retirement when he began his recent dark retreat, would only spend a year in New York before calling it quits. The Jets would like protection against that possibility, in the form of a pick that would return to New York in 2025.
