Aaron Rodgers seems like a man who could be heading out of Green Bay. If so, which five teams are most likely to make a trade for his services?
This weekend was a rough one for Aaron Rodgers as he and the Green Bay Packers were knocked out of the playoffs by the San Francisco 49ers. For Rodgers, it was the fourth time in his career that he lost to his childhood team in the postseason. It could also be the last game he plays in a Green Bay uniform.
Rodgers spent much of this past offseason debating about his future — and whether or not he wanted to stay with the Packers. Eventually, they made up but not until there was an agreement to make it easier for him to leave in 2022 if he was still unhappy with the team.
After the loss to the Niners, he was non-committal on his future but it feels as though he could have one foot out the door. If so, here are five teams that could be in the mix to trade for the future Hall of Famer.
Aaron Rodgers trade destination No. 5: New Orleans Saints
This season, the New Orleans Saints were winning with Jameis Winston. They started out 5-2 and that included a blowout against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Week 1. However, Winston was lost with a torn ACL and is not signed for 2022.
New Orleans would likely want to bring Winston back, that is unless they had a shot at bringing in Rodgers. Sure, they would need to re-work their salary cap but no one is better at that than general manager Mickey Loomis.
Head coach Sean Payton is one of the better offensive minds in the NFL and pairing him and Rodgers could be a lot of fun.
