There are a ton of NFL teams who desperately need the services of a quarterback like Aaron Rodgers. However, longtime NFL writer Peter King wrote that four teams have no interest in getting into the Aaron Rodgers business.
Writing in his latest Football Morning In America column, King reported that neither the Texans, Colts, Raiders, or Panthers “wants to scotch-tape a veteran like 39-year-old Aaron Rodgers and probably not Derek Carr.”
All of those teams have a need at quarterback but are all picking in the NFL Draft within the top nine.
“I hear — though it might be smoke — that none of the four wants to scotch-tape a veteran like 39-year-old Aaron Rodgers and probably not Derek Carr,” King said. “So the Bears, if they’re not going to use the first pick on a quarterback, could get rich quick by using quarterback desperation against these four teams.”
