In one ESPN An article published on Tuesday, Bill Barnwell lists seven teams that could potentially trade for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. And two of the deals he considers most likely – that the Denver Broncos or Las Vegas Raiders will trade to get the ruling MVP – would be of interest to Kansas City fans.
Barnwell ranked the Broncos first with this rather complex trade:
Packers receive: CB Patrick Surtain II, WR Tim Patrick, QB Drew Lock, 2022 first round selection, 2023 first round selection
Broncos receives: Rodgers, CB Eric Stokes
He then has the Raiders ranked sixth with this deal:
Packers receive: QB Derek Carr, 2022 first round selection, 2022 second round selection, 2023 first round selection
Attackers receive: Rodgers, 2023 fourth round selection
In a lengthy introduction, Barnwell first acknowledged that packers continued to say they had no intention of trading with their 37-year-old quarterback. He then compiled his roster, first eliminating teams in NFC North, others who don̵
Rodgers to the Broncos
The proposed deal with Denver suggests that Love will be ready, handing over Lock to become a backup for the Packers – or starter if Love still isn’t ready – along with an Alabama corner apostate they acquired with the NFL’s ninth pick. Draft, a wide receiver that quietly had a good season last year for those in need of Packers … and two first-round picks. The Packers give up Rodgers and their newly acquired corner, which they chose with the 29th choice.
Rodgers to the Raiders
But the simpler deal with the Raiders suggests that packers believe that love will do it no get ready to start in 2021. Barnwell sees Carr as a short-term substitute that will begin until Love is ready to go; the true value is from the two first-round choices (and the second round) that the Packers will receive for Rodgers, and from the fourth round in two years.
Both deals – along with others for teams including the New York Giants, Miami Dolphins and the Washington football team – are interesting. The one for the Broncos fits into the speculation for the weekend that Denver has prepared a special Surtain so that they can exchange it with Green Bay. Barnwell also notes that Raiders head coach John Gruden once called that he failed to muster one of his biggest regrets – and that Las Vegas is quite close to Los Angeles, where Rodgers’ fiancée Shailene Woodley and “Danger! are based.
But I would guess that for Chiefs fans, these deals sound like behavior we’re used to seeing from two AFC West rivals: in the case of the Broncos, the acquisition of an aging superstar after failing to find good quarterbacks in the project – and in the Raiders case … well … just like that Attacker things.
