Aaron Rodgers’ departure from the Green Bay Packers certainly is gaining steam with the 2021 NFL Draft taking place in the background.
Rodgers has grown so frustrated with the Packers that he told someone in the organization he no longer wants to play in Green Bay, as first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It then came out that Rodgers’ preference was to be traded to the West Coast whether that be to the San Francisco 49ers, the Denver Broncos or the Las Vegas Raiders.
There’s since been another update, though. And it is in specific regards to the Broncos, according to NFL reporter Josina Anderson.
“At least regarding Denver, I’m told one of Aaron Rodgers’ attractions to the Broncos has been the sense of ‘freedom’ he’d feel with the offense with Elway in the building,” Anderson tweeted, citing sources. “Packers clearly have many things to think over. Give in, or not? We’ll see how things unfold.”
Former NFL player and current analyst Mark Schlereth reported before the NFL draft that a trade between the Packers and Broncos was “as close to a done deal as it can be.” Fellow NFL writer Jonathan Jones confirmed the Broncos had put together “an impressive deal.”
Now, we’ll have to see how it plays out. But one thing is for sure, the Rodgers-Packers drama has made for arguably the craziest NFL storyline in a weekend which is sure to be filled with them.
