Packers could trade Aaron Rodgers to Dolphins if Jets deal falls through
How about another AFC East tries to ruin the New York Jets' offseason? Like the Jets, the Miami Dolphins have a talented roster. Trading for Aaron Rodgers could be a game-changing move, turning a 9-8 Dolphins team into serious AFC contenders.
Rodgers would join one of the league's best offenses. His top two wide receivers would be Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, who combined for 3,066 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns last season. Now, imagine what they could do with Rodgers.
The problem? Miami doesn't own a first-round pick this year. It has just four total picks in the entire draft.
We had to get a little creative here. The Packers actually give the Dolphins a draft pick this season. That helps Miami build its roster around Rodgers. But in return, the Packers receive the Dolphins' top two selections in next year's draft.
It's a high price to pay for the Dolphins, but trading for Rodgers would give them a roster capable of winning it all. Not only that, they would have an MVP quarterback on their team rather than playing for a division rival.
Rodgers would get a move to a competitive team, enjoy beautiful weather, and could finish his career going after his second Super Bowl.
