An old comment from reigning league MVP Aaron Rodgers is fueling the “Rodgers to Denver” talk on social media.
On Thursday morning, reports from NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero indicated that the Denver Broncos are finalizing a deal with Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as their next head coach.
Last season, the Green Bay Packers quarterback talked about his appreciation for offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett that is now resurfacing and making waves today.
“I hope he doesn’t go anywhere. Unless I do,” Rodgers said with a smirk, per Packers insider Matt Schneidman.
“He’s a great coach. I love spending time with him. He’s a fantastic teacher. He’s incredible in front of the room,” Rodgers said of Hackett during a recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show.
His decision may have just been may even easier.
After six years of Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch, Brock Osweiler, Case Keenum, Joe Flacco, Drew Lock, Brandon Allen, Jeff Driskel, Brett Rypien and Teddy Bridgewater, the Broncos fan base are praying that this move nets them an all-time great. Not to mention, they need somebody to help in a division filled with Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert and Derek Carr.
