The Jets seem to be putting all of their eggs in the Aaron Rodgers basket. But should New York be in need of a potential Plan B, Matthew Stafford could reportedly be an option.
Per Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, despite the Rams saying Stafford wouldn't be traded, the Pro Bowl QB's name has been "rattling around" Jets circles.
Would it be crazy for the Rams to trade Stafford only two seasons after giving up Jared Goff, two first-round picks, and a third-round pick to get Stafford? Absolutely. But trading him before Friday would be the only way to avoid having another $57 million in future compensation to become fully guaranteed. … There's a chance, albeit slim, that he may have only two more days in L.A. Especially if there ends up being no chance of Rodgers joining the Jets.
