Packers: 3 reasons why Aaron Rodgers should stay in Green Bay
1. Rodgers’ best chance to win is with Packers
If the Packers are to trade Rodgers, it’s likely the their preference would be to make a deal with an AFC team. Teams that would make sense include the Las Vegas Raiders, Denver Broncos, or possibly the New England Patriots.
But do any of those teams put Rodgers in a better position to win another Super Bowl?
In Green Bay, Rodgers would be entering the third season in Matt LaFleur’s offense. We saw just how dominant he can be in this system last year when he won his third MVP award and set a new career record for touchdown passes. No matter which team he ended up with, Rodgers would have to learn a completely new playbook and start over.
Few teams have offensive weapons as good as the Packers. In Green Bay, Rodgers gets to line up alongside Davante Adams and Aaron Jones and gets protection from the league’s best offensive line featuring a five-time All-Pro left tackle and a Pro Bowler at guard.
Sure, the Broncos have talented playmakers like Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, and Noah Fant. There’s certainly potential for Rodgers to have a great season in Denver. But not only would he be starting fresh in a new system, but he would also need to build chemistry with his pass catchers.
No such problem in Green Bay. The Rodgers-to-Adams connection is about as good as any in football. They’re usually on the same page and make life near impossible for defenses.
The Packers have a great roster. Rodgers knows the offense. And it’s fair to argue that Rodgers’ best chance to win a Super Bowl this year is in Green Bay.
