If the Green Bay Packers were to trade Aaron Rodgers in 2023, which five destinations would make sense?

At this stage, an Aaron Rodgers trade in 2023 looks unlikely. But if the Green Bay Packers plan to move forward with Jordan Love and Rodgers wants to keep playing, it’s not impossible.

According to Over The Cap, Green Bay could take on two manageable cap hits in 2023 and 2024 by trading Rodgers after June 1.

But for a deal to be made, the Packers would have to find a team that makes sense for Rodgers, is interested, and has enough cap space to bring him in.

So, let’s look at five potential candidates.

Note: All salary cap figures in this article are according to Over The Cap.

Seattle Seahawks

Aaron Rodgers has enjoyed plenty of great battles against the Seattle Seahawks over the years. Could he join them for the final year or two of his career?

The Seahawks have been one of the surprise teams this season and remain in the playoff race.

Geno Smith has played well for the Seahawks, but Rodgers could take this team to the next level. He would have a phenomenal supporting cast featuring D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and breakout running back Kenneth Walker III.

Seattle also ranks near the top of the league for cap space in 2023 with $53.78 million.

That could work.
