After the Packers selected Utah State quarterback Jordan Love in the first round of the NFL Draft last week, rumors began to swirl as to whether or not Aaron Rodgers’ time in Green Bay would be coming to an end shortly.
Though he is signed through 2023, the Packers opted to spend early draft capital on Rodgers’ eventual backup. If Green Pay tries to part with their franchise QB, could he find his way to Las Vegas? One NFL executive thinks so.
Per Mike Sando of The Athletic:
One exec wondered if the Raiders could be a prime destination for Aaron Rodgers next offseason, under the thinking that the Packers’ selection of Jordan Love in the first round could be the beginning of the end for Rodgers in Green Bay. The Raiders’ weaponry could be appealing to a quarterback accustomed to playing in recent years with a solid offensive line, but just one upper-tier wideout and nothing dynamic at tight end.
Derek Carr is signed through 2022 and is also seven years younger than Rodgers, so it doesn’t really make much sense for the Raiders to make a move for the aging QB. However, crazier things have happened, and seeing Rodgers finish his career in Vegas could be very fitting.
