Hours before the start of the NFL Draft last Thursday, Aaron Rodgers has been in the headlines since ESPN insider Adam Schefter said the Green Bay Packers quarterback wanted out of the franchise.
Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst has told the media that he’s not trading Rodgers, event hough he is the very person that Rodgers wants gone if the team wants to even think about having him back in 2021.
ESPN reporter Dianna Russini shared some insight on Rodgers’ situation where she revealed that the Denvr Broncos are the current favorite to land the three-time MVP.
“The Denver Broncos continue to be the team I hear that are going to be the most interested and are going to put the most in front of the Green Bay Packers to try to make this trade go down,” Russini said on Get Up.

Russini added that Green Bay’s front office is “deflated” right now due to all the drama surrounding this situation.
“They’re absolutely deflated at this point. They’ve been trying to fix this. They’ve been trying to mend it. But they know this is up to a strong, stubborn quarterback named Aaron Rodgers, who is going to do what Aaron Rodgers wants to do.”
The Broncos were first linked to Rodgers when Mark Schlereth said the team was closing in on a deal that never happened. The following day, the Fox Sports analyst said on the “Pat McAfee Show” that Rodgers texted him after he reported the news.
“Who’s your source? What you hearing?” Rodgers messaged.
Rodgers’ frustration seemingly lingers from the decision to draft his heir apparent, Jordan Love, in the 2020 NFL Draft.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
