The Raiders are the betting favorites to land Aaron Rodgers
Quarterback Packers Aaron Rogers doesn’t seem to believe it’s time to announce his wishes for 2023. His current team and potentially interested teams may think otherwise.
So where will Rogers end up?
Via Oddschecker.com, Raiders – favorite -200 to land Rogers, with Jets at +140 and Titans at +900.
This is surprising considering that Vic Tafur of TheAthletic.com recently reported that Las Vegas general manager Dave Ziegler and coach Josh McDaniels “apparently agreed” that the Raiders would not pursue Rodgers. And frankly, it never looked like Rodgers and McDaniels would get along the way they needed to, given that McDaniels doesn’t seem to be inclined to tiptoe around the world. subtle genius who is Aaron Rogers.
Jets ostensibly ready to wait for Rogers. It might cost them Derek Carr but to be honest, there is a fundamental difference between Carr and Rogers.
In fact, if the Jets are serious about saving Zach WilsonRogers’ career makes more sense than Carr’s. Rogers won’t be there for so long, and Wilson grew up idolizing Rogers. (Whether Wilson will feel this way after they become teammates remains to be seen.) Rodgers could play for a year or two and then Wilson could take control.
None of this matters until Rogers tells the Packers what he wants to do. If currently it seems like he prefers to be more than passive-aggressive. He said he wouldn’t hold the team hostage, but he seems to have already, even if he stubbornly refuses to admit it.
