You are really hung up on Andrew Brandt saying that the team with leverage in a negotiation is the team that is the most ok with the status quo. He speaks fact.
It's the Packers that are kicking back with their feet up right now. They have zero problem with waiting until the late August if they need to.
The Packers also are benefitted by waiting until after June 1st. If the Packers trade Aaron before June 2nd they will have a dead cap hit of $40.3 million. Wait until after June 1st to trade him and the cap hit becomes 15.8 million.

Again, since "Toast" seemed to not comprehend when I typed this the last 2 times:
We won't get to late July with this and training camp because Aaron doesn't care about missing OTAs. Aaron will force the trade to get done if it's not done by camp. More leverage for the Packers.
We know Aaron knows that Jordan Love is the starting QB in Green Bay, whether Aaron is on the roster or not. Those of you that actually believe Aaron Charles Rodgers would walk into 1265 Lombardi Avenue as a backup QB for 2023 are 100% delusional. Aaron wouldn't do it if there was 200 million on the table to be a backup this season. That is fact.
The Jets fans are already restless and frothing at that the mouth over the deal not being done. Woody Johnson wants his QB in the building ASAP to avoid the public relations disaster that is brewing.
This trade WILL GET DONE on the Packers terms in good time. No rush for the Packers, they have their QB1. J-Love is in the building and will be at the start of the offseason workouts on April 17th. We good!
