It's feeling more and more like this could be Aaron Rodgers' final year with the Green Bay Packers. But with a massive cap hit set for 2023, the Packers will be hard-pressed to find any team willing to trade for him. 

However, Colin Cowherd believes there's one team perfectly situated to bring Rodgers into the fold. On Friday's edition of "The Herd," Cowherd argued that the Seattle Seahawks would be perfect.

Cowherd said that between their plethora of draft picks (from their offseason Russell Wilson trade with the Denver Broncos), a ton of young players who are already performing at a star level, a Super Bowl-winning head coach in Pete Carroll and their cap space, the Seahawks would be a perfect fit.

Cowherd also pointed out that Rodgers would fit right in with the Seattle community due to his love of ayahuasca and other psychedelics.

Three months ago, Seattle Seahawks fans probably would have been all-in on the idea. But with the way Geno Smith has been playing this season, the Seahawks probably wouldn't take on Rodgers even if it cost them nothing at all.

Smith leads the NFL in completion percentage and has already had a better season than any of his previous nine in the league through just 10 games. 

The Seahawks can re-sign Smith in the offseason for a fraction of what it would cost to bring on Rodgers and use their cap space and draft picks to build a powerhouse that can thrive for years to come. 

But if the team is in a win-now mentality, there are worse ideas on the table than bringing in Aaron Rodgers for a year or two.
