As the New York Jets work toward acquiring Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers, there are other moves they can make. We’ll examine the one perfect NFL trade the Jets must complete in the 2023 offseason.

The Jets have made one trade so far this offseason, acquiring safety Chuck Clark from the Baltimore Ravens for a seventh-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Since it’s likely the Jets will give up more picks in a Rodgers trade, general manager Joe Douglas will be trying to add a selection or two before this year’s draft. To do so, they’ll need to trade a player off their roster.

If New York really wanted to make a big splash and likely land a significant pick or two, it could trade defensive end Carl Lawson. That would save the team $15.4 million in salary cap space, which would help when Rodgers is officially acquired.
