The Packers have given no public indication that they are planning to capitulate to Aaron Rodgers‘ trade demands.
The Broncos have been the club most closely connected to a Rodgers trade, and early speculation has suggested that any team wanting the services of Rodgers would have to come off multiple draft picks.
As Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writes, the Packers will also require their trading partner to send a QB back to Green Bay.
NFL Network’s James Palmer reported that the Denver Broncos are a “legitimate landing spot” for the NFL’s reigning MVP.
Rodgers’ long-time Green Bay Packers teammates — former wideout James Jones and fullback John Kuhn recently appeared on NFL Network and revealed his optimism that the Rodgers-Packers feud is fixable.
“I’m sure contract is part of that,” Kuhn said. “I’m sure that years guaranteed is a part of that. Not just being a highest-paid quarterback or the highest paid at your position. But I believe the security going forward is a part of that, and I also believe being on the same page as having open communication where all sides feel like they are being heard. Aaron and I are friends. We spent a decade of our lives together in the same meeting rooms, on the same practice field. So we do talk. And quite frankly this is something that I believe is fixable.”
