Packers: Aaron Rodgers on leaving?
UPDATE ; DAY
The Green Bay Packers are reportedly very open to trading quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the next few weeks, it seems.
< p>On Monday, the NFL Network reported that the NFL organization likes what it has seen from young center Jordan Love and that it would agree to part with the 39-year-old veteran if the return is impressive.
NBC Sports went even further, saying the Packers are looking for at least two first-round picks against the holder of four NFL MVP awards (2011, 2014, 2020 and 2021).
This isn't the first time Rodgers' future in Green Bay has been in the air. After threatening to retire last year, he finally signed a three-year contract extension, which includes a guaranteed $101.4 million.
Rodgers also opened the door to the possibility of playing for another roster, during his weekly appearance on 'The Pat McAfee Show' last week.
“I think I can win another MVP award if I'm in the right situation. Is it in Green Bay or somewhere else? I'm not sure. I don't think I should be closing doors, though,” the quarterback said.
In 2022, Rodgers completed 64.6% of his passes for 3,695 yards and 26 touchdowns . He was also the victim of 12 interceptions, his highest total since the 2008 campaign.
Going back to Love, he has seen action for four games this season. He had 14 of 21 passes he attempted for 195 yards and a major. The 24-year-old footballer was a first-round pick (26th overall) of the Packers in the 2020 draft.
