Lil Wayne celebrated as he learned that the Green Bay Packers intend to send Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets. In a clip shared by Karen Civil, Wayne didn't hold anything back when discussing the news. "Honestly, I feel like, 'Yeah!" he exclaimed when asked about the move. Rodgers announced the decision during an interview on The Pat McAfee Show, Wednesday. Rodgers was a routine guest on the show throughout the season.
"I made it clear my intention was to play and my intention was to play for the New York Jets," Rodgers said. "And I haven't been holding anything up at this point. It's been compensation that the Packers are trying to get for me." He also described his departure as "bittersweet." "I fucking love that city. I love that organization and always going to have love for that organization. The facts are right now they want to move on, and now so do I," he said.
