The Green Bay Packers have had a great deal of rumors and speculation surrounding their quarterback situation in 2023. Now that the NFL Combine has begun, those rumors are in full force as multiple coaches, executives, and players are being asked their opinion of the situation. One of these people is former Packers quarterback Kurt Benkert, a beloved fan-favorite in Green Bay despite his short tenure with the team.
Former Green Bay Packers Quarterback Predicts Aaron Rodgers’ Next Team
Kurt Benkert is present at the NFL Combine to help throw passes to wide receivers that have entered the Draft. During a media session with The Spun, Benkert revealed the two teams he believes Rodgers might play for next season:
“Aaron Rodgers is going to end up either a New York Jet or a Miami Dolphin. If I had to REALLY guess, I’d say the Miami Dolphins (because they) have the roster to win a Super Bowl and he could really enjoy some time in the warmth (and) defrost a little bit after all of these years.”
The mentioning of the Jets is not anything new. Rodgers has been rumored to be a target of theirs for weeks. However, the mentioning of the Dolphins is intriguing. Of course, their desire for a quarterback has a great deal to do with Tua Tagovailoa’s concussion problems. They do have a good roster and two dynamic wide receivers in Tyreek Hill and Jalen Waddle.
It truly is an interesting idea.
