Aaron Rodgers trade destination No. 2: Pittsburgh Steelers
For years, the Pittsburgh Steelers were the kings of the AFC North. There were several reasons for that including a powerful running game and an amazing defense. Oh, and they had a first-ballot Hall of Fame quarterback under center in Ben Roethlisberger.
Big Ben was the third quarterback taken in the historic 2004 NFL Draft and went on to win two Super Bowls with the Steelers — and it could have been three had it not been for Rodgers. Back in 2011, the Steelers and Packers met in Super Bowl XLV and Rodgers led his team to a win and even won the MVP of that game.
Roethlisberger continued to lead his team after that and while they never won another themselves, they were always in the mix. However, they’re about to make some big changes as Roethlisberger has played his last game for the black and gold. So with a change under center coming, why not get in on the A-Rod sweepstakes?
Pittsburgh would be going from one player destined for Canton to another and Rodgers would join a team that has some elite talent around him. He would have Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, Najee Harris, and Pat Freiermuth just to name some of the weapons. On top of that, the Steelers have a strong defense as well, making them instant contenders with Rodgers joining them.
