For the first time since he reported to training camp with the Green Bay Packers — Aaron Rodgers’ name has surfaced in trade rumors once again.
On Sunday, FOX aired an exclusive interview with Rodgers and sideline reporter Erin Andrews where he confirmed that he believed he could get traded to the San Francisco 49ers or Denver Broncos this offseason.
Rodgers is set to quarterback the Packers for the 2021 campaign, but his future in Green Bay beyond this season is very much uncertain.
If Green Bay ultimately does make Rodgers available, the Denver Broncos reportedly will be ready to pounce.
“Things are good now with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, going along fine,” NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport said Sunday on NFL Network’s “NFL GameDay Morning,” as transcribed by NFL.com. “However, in this new contract that he negotiated to get back to training camp, they did agree to look at trade options after the season. I’m told that the Denver Broncos, who would have been interested this past offseason, remain interested and could try to trade for Rodgers and make a substantial offer after this season. They have not yet committed to a long-term quarterback.”
Denver will enter the season with Teddy Bridgewater as its starter, but the veteran signal-caller is on a one-year deal.
