A Broncos trade for Aaron Rodgers would shake up the NFL

The Broncos would become instant contenders and could finally end the absurd losing streak to the Chiefs.

Good morning, and Happy Mothers Day, Broncos Country!

Yes, another Aaron Rodgers story here at MHR.

Sorry, not sorry.

When the Denver Broncos are reported to be the “most interested” in trading for Rodgers, and “are going to put the most in front of the Green Bay Packers to try to make this trade go down,” it’s going to get discussed. A lot.

Cue the, “Water is wet comments.”

Again, not sorry.

So what would a Rodgers trade to Denver do to the AFC West, AFC and the NFL? It would make the Broncos instantaneous contenders. The Kansas City Chiefs would more than likely remain the favorite in the division and the conference, but Rodgers and the Broncos would be right behind them. As for the Super Bowl, perhaps Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would have better odds than Denver? Aside from those two teams, Rodgers and the Broncos would at least be on par with the others in contention in the NFL .

When you have the chance to get a player of the caliber of Rodgers, you do whatever it takes to get him. Broncos Country needs no reminder that Patrick Mahomes has never lost to the Broncos. Since Mahomes became the starting quarterback for the Chiefs, he’s never tasted a Denver defeat. That needs to change.

The best way to ensure that happens is to get Rodgers. Can you imagine those two games a season between the Broncos and Kansas City?

As Rich Eisen reported earlier this week:

“I heard he would happily go to Denver because they’ve got the weapons, they’ve got the spot. He doesn’t care that it’s in Mahomes’ division. He would actually love to personally beat Mahomes. He would love to send Mahomes to the Wild Card every single year. This is what I’ve been told.”

If Denver has a chance to make that happen, you do it and you don’t think twice.
