Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers lost another heartbreaking postseason game 13-10, on a Robbie Gould 45-yard field as time expired for the San Francisco 49ers.
Rodgers is going to sit down and take some time to decide on his future with Green Bay. The odds are that he has probably played his last game with this organization. There are four likely destinations he can land and where could the Packers trade him to?
With Ben Roethlisberger walking out the door, the Pittsburgh Steelers have an opening at the quarterback position. Pittsburgh does not want to see Mason Rudolph or Dwayne Haskins start for them next year. Aaron Rodgers has a great amount of respect for head coach Mike Tomlin. The Steelers are never in rebuild mode. Having Aaron Rodgers would be perfect for them to compete in a completely loaded AFC. He would also have a running game, a solid receiving core, and the best defensive player in the world in T.J. Watt.
The Denver Broncos have to deal with quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert, and Derek Carr in their own division. Denver won seven games this season someway somehow with Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock at the quarterback position. There is talent on both sides of the football. The Broncos are a quarterback away from being a serious Super Bowl contender in the AFC.
This is the football team that has everything in place. After that debacle by Ryan Tannehill on Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals, it makes you wonder if this is the furthest Tannehill will take them. He has had three playoff stinkers. Tennessee has Derrick Henry and Dont’a Foreman in the backfield, along with A.J. Brown and Julio Jones at wide receiver. They have a solid offensive line and the defense has become elite. Head coach Mike Vrabel wouldn’t put up with Aaron Rodgers’s nonsense either.
The Colts fanbase is torn on Carson Wentz and so is general manager Chris Ballard. Ballard publicly called out Carson Wentz at the end of the year after he played poorly against the Las Vegas Raiders and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Indianapolis also has an elite running game with Jonathan Taylor and also an elite offensive line. The defense is also very good and the special teams wouldn’t hurt him either. The Colts just don’t have anything special on the perimeter at the wide receiver position and maybe wide receiver Davamnte Adams would follow him there.
