The NFL world continues to await an announcement from Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers: Return to Green Bay, a move to another team or retirement.
Rodgers completed his “Darkness Retreat” last week, which he claimed would hopefully help influence a decision on his playing future. If Rodgers opts to continue playing but seeks a trade, there certainly won’t be a shortage of teams interested in his services.
At Sports Illustrated, Gilberto Manzano proposed five trade ideas for the four-time league MVP. One of Manzano’s suggested landing spots was the Seattle Seahawks:
“The Seahawks have plenty to offer with a talented roster and they have the cap space and draft picks to execute a blockbuster trade. Seattle has two first-round picks and two second-round selections in April’s draft—courtesy of the Wilson trade with the Broncos. Finding quality receivers was an issue in Green Bay. That wouldn’t be the case in Seattle with the receiving tandem of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Rodgers would also have a balanced attack with running back Kenneth Walker, who’s coming off a sensational rookie season.”

Manzano’s proposed return for Rodgers was the No. 5 and No. 124 picks in the 2023 NFL Draft. The Packers would be in prime position to get one of the big three quarterback prospects in Alabama’s Bryce Young, Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud or Kentucky’s Will Levis.
Geno Smith, the 2022 Comeback Player of the Year, had the best season of his career and helped Seattle to the playoffs as the NFC’s No. 7 seed. Smith, who turned 32 years of age in October, is a pending free agent.
The Seahawks have a plethora of options heading into the offseason. They could try to trade for a veteran star like Rodgers or Lamar Jackson, commit long-term to Smith, or look to sign the latter short-term and draft a quarterback with the fifth overall pick. There’s also the option to extend Smith and draft a QB of the future with one of their two first-round picks.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
