The back-to-back NFL MVP award winner will be playing in the NFL next season, the only question at the moment is which uniform he will be sporting. Aaron Rodgers appears to have encountered something of a career choice dilemma, still undecided whether he will remain with the Green Bay Packers or make the switch to another franchise.
Indeed, it seems Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is torn, going back and forth in his own mind regarding what he wants to do next. According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, “the forth has always been the Denver Broncos,” ever since rumors began to circulate that Rodgers could finally be leaving the Packers. Having spent the entirety of his professional career with just one team, this will inevitably be a tough decision to make and one that won’t be taken lightly, hence the indecision.
“I’m not saying that anything is happening right now,” insisted Rapoport. “It doesn’t seem like the Packers have entertained any trade thoughts at all. But in Rodgers’ mind, if he was not in Green Bay, it seems that (Denver) would be the other spot he’d want to be,” speculated the NFL pundit and analyst.
Such thoughts are not entirely beyond reason. Nathaniel Hackett was recently hired as head coach of the Denver Broncos, while the franchise also seems to have plenty of cap space available, making a potential trade move for Rodgers financially accessible. Likewise, they have a youthful and promising offensive lineup, which would undoubtedly benefit from the inspiration of having the best quarterback in the business.

But having not made the playoffs since 2015 and given this is a new project, there could be some reticence from Rodgers in that regard, while the Denver franchise also plays in what is quite frankly a much tougher division. Alongside the Broncos in the AFC West are Kansas City Chiefs, Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers, which makes topping the division a genuinely challenging task for any of those teams.
Early 2022 odds are already available at most of the leading online sportsbooks. Most of them regard the Green Bay Packers as one of the top five challengers to win Super Bowl LVII, and only behind the Los Angeles Rams as favorites to lead the NFC. Meanwhile, oddsmakers place the Denver Broncos just inside the top ten Super Bowl LVII candidates, and amongst the outsiders to lead the AFC.
Of course, odds will undoubtedly change if Rodgers decides to call time at the Packers, then makes the switch to the Broncos. This is why it always pays to take a closer look at what each sportsbook is offering, no matter where you are around the world. The NFL always attracts plenty of attention from bettors, including those located in the Middle East and North Africa.
In those locations, punters tend to seek useful tips on how to wager safely and anonymously online, which is why Arabian Betting has compiled a comprehensive guide to the best Arabic betting sites available.

Insofar as which direction Rodgers will eventually take, even the legendary quarterback himself seems to be undecided. The 38-year-old initially indicated that it wouldn’t take long for a decision to be made, while at the same time, talking up his love for the Packers and his unquestionable legacy with the franchise. Nevertheless, here we are in March and Rodgers has yet to declare his intentions.
There’s no doubt the Packers’ front office will be trying to do everything possible, which includes ongoing negotiations, indicating a certain willingness to make Rodgers the highest-paid player in the NFL. There’s also no doubting that Rodgers is worth every cent he would earn, should he decide to stay with the Green Bay franchise, who are also confident the team will also be capable of bidding to win the Super Bowl.
The four-times MVP winner is living history in the NFL, while insofar as quality and experienced are concerned at quarterback, there is no better active player in the game right now. This would inevitably make him an interesting option for any franchise in the NFL, providing they have the cap space available, of course. Packers GM Brian Gutekunst says he’s not getting trade offers from other teams, according to ESPN, although that situation could quickly change.
Likewise, Rodgers has not informed the Packers of his intentions, although Gutekunst insists that before the new league year, which is March 16, he expects the definitive answer. Depending how that decision ultimately pans out, it could be one of the biggest and most important player decisions to shape the 2022 NFL season.
