It’s only a matter of time.
With rookie quarterback (on a rookie-wage salary) Jordan Love in tow, the Green Bay Packers will likely look to move on from Aaron Rodgers at some point in the near future. That could be after the 2020 season. It could be after 2021. But the day is coming.
One of many possible landing spots: Las Vegas.
Yes, the Raiders, with head coach Jon Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock.
Here’s the latest from The Athletic’s Mike Sando.
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.
Rodgers. Running back Josh Jacobs. Wide receiver Henry Ruggs. Tight end Darren Waller. Now we’re talking about an offense, and one that can keep pace in the high-powered AFC West, featuring Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid and the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.
Rodgers completed 62 percent of his passes and posted a 95.4 passer rating last season while helping the Packers earn a 13-3 record and trip to the NFC Championship Game.
