Aaron Rodgers is rumored to want out of Green Bay and the Denver Broncos continue to be the most notable franchise listed as his next destination.

The Broncos are rumored to be the favorite for Rodgers, who is reportedly unhappy with the front office for releasing a WR from the roster after he praised him publicly and then trading up to select QB Jordan Love in the first round in 2020.

Rodgers reportedly has one preferred trade destination: Denver.

“I think it’s better than 50-50 that it happens, and I can tell you that I know from Rodgers’ camp that Denver is his number one destination,” Benjamin Allbright said. “His preferred destination is the Denver Broncos.”

However, the Broncos aren’t the only team that are being pointed to as a potential suitor.

CBS Sports insider Jason La Canfora named six teams potential destinations and the five other teams contenders in the Rodgers sweepstakes: Panthers, Saints, Raiders, Eagles and Dolphins.

When it comes to the Dolphins, La Canfora wrote, “I’d certainly give them a call if I was in Green Bay. That owner would be all over it, they would sell a ton of jerseys and there are worse places to have to try to recruit Rodgers to than South Beach.”

While the fan base hopes Rodgers will come back in 2021, Brett Favre just doesn’t think it will happen.

“I think I know Aaron fairly well, and honestly I just don’t see him coming back and just saying, ‘All right, let’s just bury the hatchet, whatever caused the rift, and I’m just going to come back and play because I love the guys, I love the Green Bay fans’ — I assume he does — but his rift isn’t with the fans or the players,” Brett Favre said on ESPN’s “Wilde & Tausch” radio show, per Fox News. “It’s with the front office. Will he just swallow his pride and come in? Maybe. But I don’t see that happening.”
