What are the chances that somebody not named Aaron Rodgers or Jordan Love starts for the Green Bay Packers in 2023? It’s not very likely according to oddsmakers, but the Packers were listed to have an outside chance of landing three-time pro bowl quarterback Derek Carr.
Derek Carr To The Packers In 2023?
It’s uncertain what team Derek Carr will play for in 2023, but it definitely won’t be the Las Vegas Raiders. Carr announced that he will be parting ways with the team that drafted him in 36th overall in 2014. His decision came after head coach Josh McDaniels and the Raiders brass chose to bench him for the final two games of the regular season in favor of Jarrett Stidham.
While the Packers don’t have strong odds to land Carr, they still made the cut for potential suitors, according to DraftKings.
|New York Jets||+350|
|New Orleans Saints||+400|
|New England Patriots||+1,100|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||+1,200|
|New York Giants||+2,000|
|Green Bay Packers||+3,000|
The Packers are listed as the 14th most likely team to land Carr at +3000.
Of course, multiple pieces would have to fall into place for the Packers to even consider going after the longtime Raiders quarterback. Green Bay would have to decide that they no longer see a future with Jordan Love, and they would also have to trade Aaron Rodgers.
Back in November, NBC’s Peter King looked at the possibility of a Rodgers-Carr trade.
“I think it might not be altogether nonsensical to consider trading Rodgers to Las Vegas for Derek Carr and a third-round pick. Might being the most important word there. Miles to go before you reach a decision like that, but it has crossed my mind.”
It doesn’t make sense for the Packers to entertain the idea. But that seems like the only way Carr would ever come to Green Bay. There’s a reason why the Packers were listed as a long shot.
