Aaron Rodgers’ time in Green Bay could be coming to a swift end. There are multiple teams in the NFL willing to trade a massive deal for Rodgers, and Green Bay needs to take advantage. Here’s why the Packers should trade Aaron Rodgers (preferably to an AFC team), and sign Tom Brady.
Why we think it’s time to move on from Aaron Rodgers:
We have two major reasons why we think it is time to move on from Aaron Rodgers. First, it has been a decade of failure in the playoffs (minus a few years we didn’t make the playoffs). Packers fans have been vocal about their expectations being dashed year after year. Three (possibly four) MVP awards, multiple #1 seeds, back to back to back 13 wins seasons, with no Super Bowls to show for it just isn’t enough for Green Bay. It’s time to bring in someone who has more of a resume of wins after the regular season ends. Secondly, like mentioned above there are multiple teams who are likely willing to trade the kitchen sink for Aaron Rodgers. There are multiple teams’ fan bases out there who are already giving their input on dream trade scenarios:

The Raiders, Broncos, Eagles, Dolphins, Giants, Panthers, or Browns could trade for Aaron Rodgers…
…whoever lands him immediately becomes a Super Bowl contender. One single player can change everything. It’s amazing how important that position has become. Just ask the Bucs.

This is the trade I’d demand:
Packers: Aaron Rodgers
Agree not to franchise Adams or sign and trade.

I understand fan or even former NFL players opinion’s on this matter mean absolutely nothing to what NFL front offices will do. These types of trades however remain in the realm of possibility based on what is going on with the Packers’ front office. This is the type of move that would immediately put Green Bay right back in the mix for a serious playoff run.
Why we don’t think Tom Brady is done in the NFL:
No tip of the cap, no wave 'bye' to the fans, no one-last-look-back at the field…

Two major reasons we think the Green Bay Packers should sign Tom Brady. Body language can tell you a lot about a person’s intentions. Tom Brady left his last game of this season with no indications of it being his final time on the gridiron. We understand he could have been caught in the moment and just walked off the field to go change or start his post game recovery, however we highly doubt that.
Tom Brady on retirement: “Take it day by day and see where we’re at.”
Could argue he was the MVP of the league this season. And he just put together another absurd postseason comeback.
Once said he’ll retire when he sucks. He doesn’t suck.

Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers have had similar takes on when they may or may retire, when they “suck” or are past their days of playing high caliber football. It is pretty clear that Tom Brady is still playing at the top of his game. There has been so sign of slowing down as of late, that is a major factor to consider.
Green Bay essentially trading one Hall of Fame QB for another could be exactly what we need to get back to the promise land. Bringing in Tom Brady would sell the players, fans, and quite frankly the league that Green Bay has no intention of rebuilding or going backwards. This could also have an impact on the veterans on the team coming back for (one ore) final ride. This type of move would be franchise altering in the best possible way.
