Aaron Rodgers is showing frustration with the Green Bay Packers because he wasn’t informed quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt was let go. Rodgers and Van Pelt were close and this may be the final straw in Green Bay for Rodgers. At 34 years old, Rodgers has won two MVP’s and he was also Super Bowl XLV MVP. Rodgers has accomplished so much with the Green Bay Packers and he has made them relevant for years.
Rodgers is being treated like garbage by the Green Bay organization. They haven’t given him any defensive help and that’s the reason why Green Bay has only won one Super Bowl in the Rodgers era. The Packers have wasted his prime years and Rodgers should walk up to the Green Bay front office and ask for a trade. He also has the option of a buyout in his contract this offseason and Rodgers could become an unrestricted free-agent.
If I were Rodgers, I would want out of Green Bay. Rodgers is thinking if Brett Favre was able to get out of here, so can I. It wouldn’t surprise me if Rodgers was in a different uniform for the 2018 season. What team’s would make the most sense for Rodgers to go to?
Minnesota Vikings: This would be the ultimate middle finger to the Green Bay Packers organization if Rodgers he went to the Minnesota Vikings. Brett Favre also went to the Minnesota Vikings after he was released from Green Bay. Rodgers would have serious offensive weapons to work with like Dalvin Cook, Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Laqoun Treadwell, and Kyle Rudolph. The Vikings have a great defense and that is something Rodgers has never had in his career. Rodgers would make the Vikings Super Bowl Favorites for the 2018 season. Also, Minnesota is unsure of their quarterback situation with Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater, and Sam Bradford all being free agents.
Denver Broncos: Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders would be a nice one-two punch for Rodgers to throw to. Denver has an elite defense and they were just in the Super Bowl two years ago. Denver isn’t sold on Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch.
Miami Dolphins: Miami has good offensive personnel, but the thing that is keeping them away from contending is quarterback play. Aaron Rodgers would make the Miami Dolphins one of the favorites to win the AFC. Rodgers would have Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams in the backfield. He would have Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker to throw to. Julius Thomas is a very good tight end as well. Miami doesn’t have a stout defense, but Miami was ranked 16th in total defense this past season compared to Green Bay’s 22nd ranked defense.
Aaron Rodgers completed 64.7 percent of his passes in 2017 for 1,675 yards 16 touchdowns and six interceptions. He missed most of the season because of a broken collarbone.
