Silver Minings: Raiders are second highest-favored team to acquire Aaron Rodgers

Las Vegas Raiders are given 8/1 odds to acquire the MVP QB

NFL: Preseason-Green Bay Packers at Oakland Raiders Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Draft wasn’t the only biggest piece of news this weekend. On Thursday, the NFL world was in shock when news dropped that reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers said he wanted out of Green Bay.

Although it seems crazy that the Packers would trade their star, there are many people who believe Rodgers has played his final snap in Green Bay.

Because everything needs to be bet on now, there are odds you can bet on about where Rodgers will play his first game of the regular season in 2021. The Packers are the current favorite, but only at -270.

As of right now, the Raiders are viewed as the second favorite team to trade for him at +800. The Broncos are the current favorite at +300.

If the Raiders were to trade for Rodgers, you’d think it would include Derek Carr and a number of high NFL Draft picks. The Packers are in a tough situation, as Rodgers holds all the cards. Depending on how this situation plays out, there’s a chance Green Bay doesn’t get nearly as much as they should for him.

I doubt Rodgers ends up in Las Vegas, but can you imagine? What a storyline that would be.
