Moves for the Denver Broncos to win the 2022 NFL Offseason
2. Trade for Aaron Rodgers
The next logical step here is to make a trade for Aaron Rodgers, which just became more likely due to the Packers’ divisional-round loss to the 49ers.
Rodgers is apparently going to consider all options, but it’s unlikely he retires in my opinion.
Aaron Rodgers might win another MVP, giving him two in a row, so I’m not sure why he’d want to hang it up when he’s playing the best ball of his career.
The Denver Broncos have the necessary cap space and draft picks to make the trade happen, and they have a good bit of talent on the entire roster, so even if Rodgers was super expensive to acquire, the Broncos don’t have to empty roster to make it happen.
Rodgers instantly makes the Broncos Super Bowl contenders and gives Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert more competition.
This would give the Broncos a similar situation to when Peyton Manning signed with the team in 2012, and with both Manning and John Elway winning a Super Bowl during their final season in the NFL and with the Broncos, Rodgers riding off in the sunset makes too much sense.
