Jets interested in signing several of Aaron Rodgers' Packers teammates

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the New York Jets are interested in adding several members of Green Bay Packers' receiving corps. Over the last week, the Jets have been very aggressive in their pursuit of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

While the Jets are waiting on Rodgers to announce his decision, they are seemingly trying to bring some of his favorite targets to the Big Apple. According to Schefter, the Jets are "actively working to reach an agreement" with free agent wideout Allen Lazard.

"Jets are actively working to reach an agreement with Packers’ free-agent WR Allen Lazard, per league sources. There is another team involved, and no final decision, but the Jets are trying to reunite Lazard and OC Nathaniel Hackett," Schefter said.

In a follow-up tweet, Schefter also revealed the Jets are trying to sign veteran wide receiver Randall Cobb.

"With the Jets closing in on a deal for WR Allen Lazard, another WR expected to be on their radar in the coming days of free agency is Packers’ veteran Randall Cobb, per league sources," Schefter said in a follow-up tweet.

In another tweet, Schefter revealed that the Jets are also interested in bringing Packers free agent tight end Mercedes Lewis.

"Packers’ veteran free-agent TE Marcedes Lewis, who spent the past five seasons in Green Bay, has drawn interest from, amongst others, the New York Jets and Las Vegas Raiders, per league sources," Schefter said in another tweet.

Meanwhile, the Jets' biggest goal is to land Rodgers.

The Jets entered this offseason determined to land Rodgers and they have missed out on some free agent quarterbacks while waiting on Rodgers to make up his mind. When Rodgers was asked about the Jets over the weekend, he didn't want to reveal much.

"It's always interesting meeting important figures in the sport. It's always interesting. That's all I'm giving you. Stay tuned," Rodgers said.
