If Aaron Rodgers were to be traded, this writer believes he could land with this NFL team.
According to Mike Sando of The Athletic, an anonymous NFL executive named the Las Vegas Raiders as a “prime destination” for Rodgers.
Ever since the Packers drafted Utah State quarterback Jordan Love, rumors have swirled around his future. Even Brett Favre made a statement believing Rodgers will finish his career with another team.
However, this would not happen until next season.
According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, the Packers are not going to realistically be able to move Rodgers this season. Graziano broke down the cap hit situation on ESPN’s Get Up.
“Yeah, pretty much impossible at this point. If they were to trade him now, very hypothetically, it is more than $51 million in dead money on this year’s salary cap. It would actually add $29 million to this year’s cap. They don’t have that cap room to do it if they even want it to. If they trade him next year, you’re looking at $31 million in dead money. A trade of Aaron Rodgers out of Green Bay is pretty impossible this year, and would be extremely painful for the team next year.”
Graziano laid out one way that a trade could happen.
“If you were to do it this time next year, you’d have to be sure Rodgers was done, and Jordan Love was absolutely ready to go and be a star in the NFL in 2021. So asking for a trade is very far fetched, and quite frankly, kind of an insane overreaction. Aaron Rodgers has been there since 2005, he’s played in four NFC Championship Games. The notion that the Packers aren’t are not Aaron Rodgers in a position to win and succeed and win championships is just not supported by the facts.”
