Aaron Rodgers sure knows how to cause rumors to fly on the internet.
Now that the Denver Broncos have hired their coach of the future in Nathaniel Hackett, the team must now focus on solving the quarterback position. Since last season, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been heavily linked to the Broncos, as Denver has everything in place to make a Super Bowl run if only they had an elite QB behind center to guide them to the promised land.
That link between the two was only accelerated as Rodgers was at the Waste Management Phoenix open and fans yelled for him to come to the Broncos.
His response was telling.
The rumors surrounding the Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers don’t appear likely to end anytime soon.
The Green Bay Packers are doing what they can to quash any talk of trading quarterback Aaron Rodgers. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported the Packers are steadfast in their desire to keep their franchise quarterback next year.
Rodgers went through an offseason of speculation and rumors that he wanted out of Green Bay last year. The franchise wants no part of that this offseason.
Rodgers is fresh off of another MVP-caliber season that saw him throw for 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns and just four interceptions. However, the Packers exited the playoffs with a divisional-round loss to the 49ers, coming up short of a championship yet again.
