The Green Bay Packers are going to have some tough decisions to make this off-season. With the way the 2022 NFL season has gone so far, it seems like nothing is off the table. Trading Aaron Rodgers may seem crazy to some. However, to others, it could make a ton of sense. If Green Bay decides trading Aaron Rodgers is best for the franchise, one analyst says that reuniting him with Davante Adams could work for both sides.
Aaron Rodgers Potential Trade To Las Vegas Raiders?
Tom Downey from NFL Daily suggested a trade scenario that would send Aaron Rodgers out west to play with Davante Adams.
Aaron Rodgers was linked to Las Vegas last year. This is not designed to be slander of (Derek) Carr. He ain’t Aaron Rodgers though. Raiders have the money to make it work, draft capital may not be as clutch as the Giants for example but do you think the Raiders beat the Bengals last year in the playoffs if they have Aaron Rodgers? I do.
So what would a trade like this have to look like? This is our proposed option:
Las Vegas Raiders Receive:
- QB Aaron Rodgers
Green Bay Packers Receive:
- 2023 First-Round Draft Pick
- 2023 Third-Round Draft Pick
- 2024 First-Round Draft Pick
- 2024 Third-Round Draft Pick
There would have to be some serious salary cap hoops to jump through with Aaron Rodgers’ contract. If this trade happened before June 1st, 2023, the Packers would have a $40M cap hit in 2023. However, if it happened after June 1st, 2023, they would have a $15M cap hit in 2023 and a $24M cap hit in 2024. A trade like this could set Green Bay up for the next phase of their franchise while giving Las Vegas a chance to win now. Green Bay currently sits at 3-6 nine weeks into the 2022 NFL season. If their season ends just as rough as it has begun, a trade could be imminent
