The New York Jets and Las Vegas Raiders are often listed as top landing spots for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a trade this offseason.

But there’s another team perhaps getting overlooked, the Tennessee Titans.

Sayre Bedinger of NFL Spin Zone has predicted the starting quarterbacks for all 32 teams in the 2023 season.

You’ll notice that Jordan Love is the predicted starter for the Packers, with Aaron Rodgers traded elsewhere.

But Bedinger doesn’t believe Rodgers’ future is in New York or Las Vegas.

The Jets end up with free-agent Derek Carr, while the Raiders bring in Jimmy Garoppolo or Taylor Heinicke.

Instead, it’s the Titans who end up with Aaron Rodgers.

Tennessee could make sense for a few reasons.

The Titans have enough cap space to make it work. According to Over The Cap, Tennessee currently has $12.41 million in cap space, but that would increase to $30.21 million by releasing quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and $39.41 million by making it a post-June 1 release.

Rodgers would be joining an offense featuring three-time Pro Bowl running back Derrick Henry, who has over 1,500 rushing yards in three of the past four seasons, and double-digit rushing touchdowns in five consecutive seasons.

The Titans do need to improve their offensive line and receiving corps, but they would have an opportunity to do that in free agency and the draft.

With Aaron Rodgers on the roster and an aggressive approach in free agency, the Titans could get back to competing in the AFC.

While the New York Jets and Las Vegas Raiders might be the most discussed possible landing spots for Aaron Rodgers, perhaps we shouldn’t rule out a trade between the Packers and Titans.
