Aaron Rodgers trade destination No. 1: Denver Broncos

Several years ago, the Denver Broncos made a huge splash when they lured Peyton Manning over in free agency. Following a spectacular 13-year career with the Indianapolis Colts, Manning signed with Denver in 2012 and promptly turned them into contenders.

Denver was 13-3 in each of his first two seasons and 45-12 overall with Manning as the starter. They also made it to the Super Bowl twice, winning it following the 2016 season which proved to be the last game for the great signal-caller.

Fast forward to 2022 and the Broncos are still looking for their next quarterback. They have had Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch, Case Keenum, Drew Lock, and Teddy Bridgewater — but cannot get over the hump. It’s frustrating for them as well, since they have some serious weapons including Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, and Noah Fant. They also continue to be a good defensive football team.

This year, there will be a lot of change coming after letting Vic Fangio go. Another change should be happening under center after Bridgewater was unable to prove he should be the full-time guy.

Of course, the best move for them would be to land Aaron Rodgers. He could have a field day with the players in their passing game — plus the AFC West would be a blast with Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes, and Justin Herbert all facing one another twice per season.
