The Green Bay Packers picked a quarterback on Day 1 of the 2020 NFL Draft. Are they ready to move on from Aaron Rodger? This move got people talking and Reggie Bush discussed the Rodgers-Patriots option. Will the talented quarterback finish his career as a replacement for Tom Brady?
The Patriots lost TB12 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and they have an open spot. Bill Belichick may not trust Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer enough to let them open the season in September. Is he ready to trust Rodgers?
The Packers traded up in the 2020 NFL Draft to sign Utah State quarterback Jordan Love with the 26th overall pick. This added fuel to the fire, and we all know someone who loves a good rumor. Rodgers may soon leave the Packers. Former running back Bush believes that the Patriots are a potential trade partner.
The Rodgers-Patriots scenario
The Patriots don’t have enough assets to get Rodgers through a trade. His lucrative deal is too thick for the Patriots to handle. They may not be able to pay him in 2020.
But, seeing the Packers bring in Rodgers’ successor at this point was definitely a reason for concern. The team probably has other plans under center. Green Bay gave up a fourth-rounder to swap selections with the Houston Texans to sign Love. The team has a few hug holes to fill on the roster, but getting a quarterback seemed like a good idea for them. Green Bay came up one game short of a Super Bowl in the past season, so they are ready for a new change. They are ready for bold moves in the near future, and they have already made the first one.
New England parted ways with Brady. He signed a two-year deal with the Bucs, and Belichick has to choose between Hoyer and Stidham. Adding Rodgers seems like a really good idea, but it’s more like an unreal dream. It’s still nice to imagine him wearing a Patriots uniform though. The future holds great things for every NFL team, and the Pats are ready for whatever surprise comes their way.
