Ever since the Aaron Rodgers trade rumors first surfaced before the 2021 NFL Draft, there’s been one team mentioned the most for the Green Bay Packers superstar quarterback.
The Denver Broncos have been mentioned all along for the MVP quarterback. Rodgers has been linked to the AFC West franchise ever since he was rumored to want out of Green Bay.
With the 2021 season approaching, the rumors aren’t going away.
This weekend, NFL insider Benjamin Allbright reported that Denver is the place that Rodgers wants to be.
Because that’s where Rodgers wants to be

Other teams have been mentioned for Rodgers, like the 49ers and the Raiders. However, Rodgers is rumored to prefer Denver.
“He doesn’t particularly want the raiders, he’s just buddies with Gruden,” Allbright added.
The Rodgers saga has taken a couple of different turns this week, with speculation about contract demands and even a potential retirement.
If Rodgers is going to stay put in Green Bay, there’s reportedly only one solution: a mending of the relationship with the front office.
“Money’s not the problem. It’s his feelings towards the front office. It’s him buying into the GM and the team president,” Yahoo! Sports insider Charles Robinson shared in an appearance on “Brother From Another” last week. “… He’s talked about this idea that ‘it’s not about the corporation, it’s about the people who build the corporation.’ That’s what’s got to be mended here and that can’t really just be done with a contract.”
If the relationship can’t be fixed, prepare for a trade (or retirement). And, if a trade happens, the Broncos are probably the most likely landing spot.
