When Adam Schefter of ESPN dropped the news of Aaron Rodgers being disgruntled with the Green Bay Packers and wanting to move on from them, one team has been mentioned more than any to take on his services.
James Palmer reported this week that he has spoken to people in the Broncos’ organization who acknowledge there is a “real possibility” they could trade for the Packers QB.

Denver has the second-most cap space in the NFL and would be one of the few teams that could absorb Rodgers’ contract in a trade. The team has already traded for Teddy Bridgewater, but his contract isn’t big enough where it would prevent a trade from happening.
Out of the four teams in the AFC West, the Broncos clearly have the most glaring weakness at the QB position. Palmer says when the news came out about Rodgers’ discontent, the Broncos started looking at potential packages almost immediately.
In 2020, Rodgers appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and completed 70.7 percent of his passes for 4,299 yards, 48 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
At age 37, he also won the MVP.
