Could Aaron Rodgers actually be traded? That will remain the biggest question regarding the Packers 2023 off-season until a decision is made. Matt LaFleur has expressed he wants the four-time MVP back in Green Bay for at least one more run. Brian Gutekunst specifically stated that it will be a “wait and see” type of situation with Aaron Rodgers. The Packers are clearly keeping all options on the table, and today it was reported that the Packers are likely listening to trade offers in regards to Aaron Rodgers.
Green Bay Packers Reportedly Listening To Trade Offers For Aaron Rodgers
Today Ian Rapoport appeared on The Pat McAfee Show and elaborated on the Aaron Rodgers situation:
I mean, it’s not an impossibility. Here is the thing about Aaron Rodgers being traded, because of the way his contract is structured, a trade is possible. You can do it financially. You can come up with the compensation. I think Green Bay likes what they have in Jordan Love, so if they got the right package I think they could do a deal. It would be 60 million dollars for one season. That is what he is on the books for, cash, next season. Lets say you’re the Jets, “we’re going to go all in and trade for Aaron Rodgers.” You are going to be trading for a quarterback who you are giving up a first rounder I’m sure, probably more, and pay 60 million dollars, which would be by far the highest paid quarterback. So they could do it, but that is like astronomical.
