Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday that he intends to play for the New York Jets next season, but one NHL team decided to have a little fun with the announcement.
The Winnipeg Jets posted a photoshopped image of the Green Bay Packers quarterback in a Jets jersey, even giving him his No. 12, after he cleared up the rumors surrounding a potential trade with the AFC East team during an appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show."
"Confirming Aaron Rodgers’ report," the tweet read.
AARON RODGERS REVEALS HE INTENDS 'TO PLAY FOR THE NEW YORK JETS' AFTER DAYS OF CONTEMPLATION
The tweet itself was a play on ESPN's Adam Schefter who tweeted out a text exchange between himself in Rodgers confirming that the veteran quarterback told him to "lose my number" after he reached out for information.

Jets fans in New York can certainly appreciate the joke now after Rodgers confirmed his desire to play there after weeks of speculation, but he did say that no final decision has been made and deal has not been reached by both teams.
"At this point, as I sit here, I think since Friday, I made it clear that my intention was to play and my intention was to play for the New York Jets."
Rodgers hinted at a breakdown in communication, saying that after his five-day darkness retreat "something changed."
"It was clear to me at that point that, although the Packers were going to say the right thing publicly, they were ready to move on."
