1. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers
This is a big fish, one the Pittsburgh Steelers brass could and should opt to push hard for. Rodgers has been disgruntled. He made it clear that 2021 could be his last season with the Packers. Coming to the Steelers could be a perfect match. It’s no secret that head coach Mike Tomlin and Aaron Rogers share a mutual admiration for one another.
Rodgers flirted with the idea of leaving the Packers during the 2021 off-season. He restructured his deal, making him a valuable option for Tomlin and the Steelers. If he’s not satisfied with the franchise, perhaps he looks to end his career with another historical franchise in the Steelers.
Soon as he steps into the locker room, he’ll make the Steelers Super Bowl contenders. He’ll elevate players like Chase Claypool, who would love to have a guy like Rodgers get him the ball on deep routes. On the other side, Dionte Johnson will make big plays out of nothing for the future Hall of Famer. Who knows, with Davante Adams might follow his buddy to the Steel City.
If the Steelers want to replace a future Hall of Famer and breathe new life into the franchise, getting Aaron Rogers does that. However, it may cost them a ton of draft capital.
