Earlier today, a juicy rumor surfaced on draft day that the 49ers offered the No. 3 overall pick, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, other players, plus draft picks to the Green Bay Packers for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
NFL Insider Tom Pelissero took to Twitter and confirmed that the 49ers did in fact reach out to the Packers, but no offer was made. The source tells Pelissero there is a “zero percent chance” the Packers trade Rodgers.
ESPN’s Rob Demovsky stated the rumored trade offer is “NOT true” and there have been no calls between the 49ers and Packers.
Rodgers caused a stir in the aftermath of Green Bay’s 31-26 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game. He called his future with the organization “uncertain” during his postgame press conference.
Rodgers clarified his comments by noting he wasn’t looking to leave the Packers.
“It was more a realization, I think, that ultimately my future is not necessarily in my control,” Rodgers said (h/t The Athletic). “I think that was what just kind of hit me in the moment.”
Rodgers remains under contract to the Packers through the 2023 season.
