Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has chosen not to follow the nuclear path by choosing outside of Friday’s deadline. However, that doesn’t mean their situation with the Packers is close to being resolved, and the teams continue to watch out.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported Saturday morning “SportsCenter” (H / t 247Sports) that the Denver Broncos, who are very interested in the future Hall of Famer, are still following Rodgers ’situation in Green Bay. Fowler said:
“They tell me from the Broncos’ perspective that yes, they’re monitoring Rodgers and any situation he may be out with in the quarterbacks, but he likes his current setup. He likes Drew Lock and they think he’s a different guy this year with the his work ethic .And he likes Teddy Bridgewater. They think he can even win games. They’ll look at Rodgers if he’s available, he doesn’t, so they certainly won’t go too far at this point. “
Thursday, however Fowler he said there is currently “no commercial market” for Rodgers as the Packers continue to insist they will not trade him this season.
If the Packers end up swapping Rodgers, or getting out, Green Bay will be forced to turn to second-year quarterback Jordan Love, who they swapped to select in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Endless in view of Rodgers’ situation, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur he told Love as he left for the summer break to continue preparing to be the starter this season.
The Utah State player didn’t play any games during the 2020 campaign as a rookie, so it would be ideal for the Packers to resolve their situation with Rodgers sooner or later.
