Don’t expect the Aaron Rodgers-Las Vegas Raiders rumors to go away anytime soon.

First, because Rodgers’ issues with the Green Bay Packers seemed too real and too deep for there to be a resolution in the near future ... or maybe ever. Of course, last week there was a report that Rodgers would prefer to be traded to either the San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos or the Raiders.

Since then, the 49ers drafted quarterback Trey Lance at No. 3, so they are out. So it seems the possible landing spots for Rodgers are the Broncos or the Raiders, Denver is the most likely landing spot because it has a bigger need at the position and a trade would be easier.

But many people aren’t count out the Raiders in the Rodgers derby yet. One of them is ESPN’s Mike Greenberg, who knows Raiders’ coach Jon Gruden well.

What does it all mean?

Nothing, of course. But it’s a reminder that the Rodgers-Raiders talk won’t die until he either makes up with the Packers, gets traded elsewhere go become a full-time Jeopardy host.
