Aaron Rodgers trade talks are in full bloom this off-season. While we likely won’t know what the future holds for another month or so, the possibility sure seems real. There have been a few teams that top the list of likely destinations for Aaron Rodgers if he is traded. The New York Jets, Las Vegas Raiders, and Tennessee Titans are some of those notable destinations. As it turns out, Aaron Rodgers may not be the only star quarterback that is traded this off-season. Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens are not close at all on contract negotiations, which could lead to a trade.
Lamar Jackson Could Be Traded From The Baltimore Ravens
It has been speculated that Jackson and the Ravens have not been able to come a contract agreement because Jackson wants a fully-guaranteed deal similar to what Deshaun Watson received in Cleveland. There is no question that Lamar Jackson would be almost any team’s starting quarterback in 2023 and beyond. However, a fully guaranteed $230 million contract is tough to justify, even for a 26-year-old with Jackson’s talent.
The #avens and Lamar Jackson “could possibly be” $100 million apart in contract talks over how much guaranteed money should be in his contract, according to Jeremey Fowler. “Those trade calls are coming.” Fowler added. Lamar Jackson would certainly command a larger trade package than Aaron Rodgers would simply based on his age. Jackson could easily provide another 10 years of high caliber quarterback play, Aaron Rodgers seems to be in that one to three year range. The 2022 off-season saw multiple star wide receivers traded to new teams. Most notably were Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill. Could the 2023 off-season see multiple star quarterbacks traded?
