Aaron Rodgers has not made a decision yet, or at least one that has been shared with the public. Regardless, trade rumors have swirled regarding his 2023 team all offseason. Earlier last week, it was reported that the Las Vegas Raiders, once the betting favorite to land the four-time MVP via trade, were no longer interested in acquiring his services. However, a recent report by Dan Graziano of ESPN states that they are still very much in play for Rodgers.
The Raiders Still Want Aaron Rodgers, but Are Keeping Their Options Open
In his report, Graziano wrote:
“The Las Vegas Raiders remain a team to watch in the Aaron Rodgers sweepstakes, whenever those kick off. Coach Josh McDaniels has long been an admirer of his, and Rodgers would be the best possible addition at quarterback if the Raiders and McDaniels are trying to win in the 2023 season.
“If they can’t get him, a lot of people in Indianapolis this week expect McDaniels and GM Dave Ziegler to pursue free agent quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, whom they know from his time in New England early in his career. There’s also some chatter that McDaniels might try to acquire Mac Jones from the Patriots, though it seems unlikely New England would consider moving the 2021 first-rounder.”
A trade for Rodgers would be intriguing, of course, because it would reunite him with Davante Adams. The pair were one of the most dynamic duos in the NFL up until Adams was traded to the Raiders himself last offseason.
