Don’t book hotel rooms in Las Vegas just yet, Jets fans … Packers legend LeRoy Butler tells TMZ Sports even with Aaron Rodgers — “ya’ll ain’t going to no Super Bowl.”
In fact, according to the Hall of Famer, NY won’t even break .500 this season with Rodgers!!!
Butler gave us his prediction on Friday — just a couple days after Rodgers made it known he wants to be traded from the Packers to the Jets — and he’s warning NY fans, be careful what you wish for.
Don’t get it twisted, Butler thinks Rodgers can still sling the pigskin — “you can blindfold Aaron flat-footed, and he’ll hit a mosquito” — he just thinks the way the quarterback is handling this offseason won’t lend itself to big wins later in 2023.
“I’m going to say this,” Butler told us, “I was on a team that went to two Super Bowls — your team gotta be close.”
“I don’t know if Aaron Rodgers is going to be there the whole offseason to gel with the top Rookie of the Year wide receiver [Garrett Wilson] … I don’t know if he’s going to be there to go to the clubs with Breece Hall. I don’t know.”
Butler said he’s expecting it all to lead to only eight wins for the Jets in ’23.
“And then, you have to waffle again if he wants to play for 2024,” Butler said.
Butler added he’s not been pleased with the way Rodgers has handled his impending exit from Green Bay — straight up saying some of the signal-caller’s words have come across as “disrespectful.”
He added that he’s happy the team can finally move on from the Rodgers saga with Jordan Love — predicting GB will win nine or 10 games this season.
“We’re all on board,” the former Green Bay safety said. “We’re so excited. Thank you, Jets. Shout out Robert Saleh. Thank you! Thank you! Woody Johnson, thank you!”
