San Francisco 49ers

This could make too much sense. Aaron Rodgers’ best chance at another championship could come with the San Francisco 49ers if they were able to make a trade.

The 49ers have one of the best rosters in the NFL, but they have been hit with injuries at the quarterback position. It may not matter, as Brock Purdy has helped his team win two games after throwing for 461 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions.

Still, the 49ers could be unstoppable with Rodgers as their starting quarterback.

He would join a team with the league’s top-ranked defense and an offense featuring Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, and Brandon Aiyuk. Oh, and an offensive line with All-Pro left tackle Trent Williams.

With Rodgers, the 49ers could dominate.

The Packers may not want to trade their MVP quarterback to an NFC rival, but let’s be honest, without Rodgers, they would need to start a rebuild around Jordan Love. By the time they are ready to compete, Rodgers may have retired and the 49ers’ championship window would likely be over.

San Francisco only has a little over $14 million in cap space next year, so would need to work that out. But anything is possible, and it could make a ton of sense.
