There’s still no end in sight for Aaron Rodgers’ holdout in Green Bay, as the disgruntled superstar has remained fairly quiet this offseason.
Most of the coaches and executives in Green Bay were walking on eggshells in an effort to mend their relationship with Rodgers. Packers CEO Mark Murphy, however, completely cracked those eggshells when he called the three-time MVP a “complicated fella.”
Murphy’s comment about Rodgers may have made this situation even worse. If that’s the case, Adam Schein of CBS Sports believes it’s time for the Packers to trade their superstar quarterback.
Schein thinks the Denver Broncos would be the most likely trade suitor for Rodgers.
“If you think Aaron Rodgers is going to walk into Lambeau Field, into training camps to play for these guys, you aren’t paying attention,” Schein said. “Mark Murphy showed you exactly, exactly what Rodgers meant when he discussed character. Trade him to Denver now.”

Schein isn’t the only NFL analyst who believes the Packers should trade Rodgers to the Broncos this offseason. ESPN’s Marcus Spears also sees Denver as the most realistic landing spot.
“I would 100 percent be trying to figure out how I can get as much compensation from the Denver Broncos as I could because that’s the team that should be trying to get Aaron Rodgers,” Spears told The Spun last week.
Do you think we’ll see Rodgers in the Mile High City next season?
