He is the two-time, TWICE, reigning MVP, and he probably played his last snap for the Green Bay Packers. In any other off-season the market for someone as talented as Rodgers would be huge, but with so many other talented QBs on the market this year, many teams may not think Rodgers is worth the ransom they would have to pay to acquire him .
The Packers star has provided a list of favorite trading partners in the past, with the 49ers, Raiders and Broncos as three of the most rumored. However, it’s unlikely that the 49ers will choose to go quarterback with anyone who isn’t Tom Brady (if he decides to retire) or Trey Lance. The Raiders also always seemed to be pleased with Carr as their signalman. That leaves only the Broncos.
But is Denver really the best situation for Rodgers to be in. The team’s front office is a mess. They are currently looking for someone to buy them and just hired new GM in January. Not to mention, Rodgers clearly wants to win a Super Bowl, so would moving to a division with Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert really be the best option? In addition, a move to Denver Rodgers would be near ex-fiancé† We all know how little Rodgers loves it interaction with family members† Maybe he treats “almost family” the same?
All in all, as little as there is to do in Denver from an off-the-field perspective, it was one of Rodgers’ favorite trade destinations for a reason. Although Rodgers had his disagreements with Packers head coach Matt LaFleur, he never seemed to have any issues with the former Packers’ OC, now Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett. Denver has the guns and defenses to be a legit competitor with Rodgers in the middle… as long as they can hold their own against Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders. Rodgers, who is known for his confidence, should take the challenge no problem. In addition, it would be fitting that Rodgers would go to the Mile High City after all these years sitting in an ivory tower looking down on the city of Green Bay.
Forecast: Broncos strike deal for Rodgers
