It was reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers wants out. Now, Pro Football Talk is listing the Broncos and Raiders are the “most likely’ landing spots for the future Hall Of Famer.
If Aaron Rodgers is traded, Broncos or Raiders are most likely destinations. https://t.co/jUHuzNQYAu— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 29, 2021
According to Pro Football Talk, there are several factors that make the Raiders or Broncos the most likely destinations. First, they want him out of the NFC and Rodgers would prefer to stay in the west coast.
There are several key factors. A native of California, Rodgers would prefer to play on the West Coast. In trading him, the Packers would want to send him out of the NFC — which would likely eliminate the 49ers as a potential match. And because Green Bay selected Jordan Love in the first round last year, the club would not need a quarterback in return.
So this leaves the Broncos and Raiders as logical destinations.
Pro Football Talk is also saying that Rodgers has the Broncos on his “wishlist” per sources.
From unimpeachable source: As of last night, Aaron Rodgers’ wish list was 49ers, Broncos, Raiders (not necessarily in that order). He wanted Packers to take the 49ers’ offer. Next move by Rodgers is TBD.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 29, 2021
So wow, if a deal is going to go down, it will likely go down this weekend or potentially in the next few hours when the Broncos are on the clock.
Now, if the Broncos select a quarterback in the first round, that obviously changes everything but right now with bombs dropping all over the place, I wouldn’t rule out anything.
Obviously, adding Rodgers would make the Broncos Super Bowl contenders instantly and this offense would likely explode with him under center. It’s fun to dream about.
Will this dream become a reality? We’re about to find out.
As for price? Do whatever it takes to get a reigning MVP and future Hall Of Fame quarterback playing at a high level still.
