Rodgers has not spoken publicly about a possible swap since reports surfaced Monday that a move to New York is all but complete. But he has privately identified at least four players he would like the Jets to “target and acquire” before signing a move, ESPN reports. Those players include Beckham, plus current Packers free players Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and Marcedes Lewis – the last three of whom are reportedly in preliminary talks with the Jets.

Lazard, Cobb and Lewis all received passes from Rodgers at Green Bay in 2022 and have done so for years. Beckham, on the other hand, is one of the biggest names still available among free agent wideouts. The former Giants star missed the entire season last season while recovering from an ACL tear, but he recently gained interest from multiple teams after training in Arizona State. Beckham was reportedly courted by the Packers before signing with the Rams during the 2021 season when he won the Super Bowl.

It’s worth noting that, if Rodgers joined the Jets, he would already inherit a deep receiving corps that includes Offensive Rookie of the Year Garrett Wilson, former second-round pick Elijah Moore, and former Titans standout Corey Davis.
