Russell Wilson and Carson Wentz have been traded in blockbuster moves. Which quarterbacks are we hearing most in NFL trade rumors?
The 2022 NFL offseason is moving at breakneck speed— if you blink, you just might miss something.
The NFL trade rumors continue to swirl after seeing big names like Russell Wilson and Carson Wentz moving on from their teams.
Reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers decided to sign a four-year contract extension in a much-heralded return to Green Bay.
Players like WR Chris Godwin, WR Davante Adams, and TE David Njoku were some of the biggest names on the market to receive a franchise tag.
All of these moves will shape the trade market moving forward for the remainder of the offseason.
Let’s take a look at some of the big-name quarterbacks who could be involved in the next big NFL trade.
NFL QB No 5. Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love
At first glance you may be thinking: why is Jordan Love on this list? Doesn’t he back-up Aaron Rodgers? If he’s traded who will back up one of the all-time great quarterbacks?
To answer those questions: He has value, yes, and literally anyone else.
Aaron Rodgers still has a ton of fuel left in the tank. He’s reportedly signed on for a few more years. Will former first-round pick Jordan Love be content with riding the pine for half a decade before getting a crack at being a full-time starter?
Love has basically seen no action in the two seasons he’s been in the league. He’ll continue to ride the bench next season (year three) and probably another season or two after that.
I’m sure his agent will have something to say if there are no plans for Love to be moved. The competitor in him has to be itching to play and prove himself. He certainly can do that, but it’ll need to be somewhere other than Green Bay.
Would the New York Giants, New Orleans Saints, or Detroit Lions take a flyer on Love and bring him in to push these team’s respective starters for their jobs? Would a couple of mid-round draft picks be enough for Green Bay to end the Love experiment/distraction?
It could be a win-win for a team out there not wanting to break the bank—it’s a low-risk, high-reward situation.
