pgwingman Posted December 6, 2022 Share Posted December 6, 2022 I'm having deja vu having this conversation again, but here we go. So thanks to @Packer_ESP, the options on Rodgers contract have been laid out: He can retire or be traded for $40M cap hit next year. If he plays next year only, it's a $59M cap hit., If he plays two more years, it's north of $100M spread out over 2-3 years. Much has been discussed about whether Rodgers is here for the future or it's Love's time to shine. Please leave those discussions on other threads. But since it's the bye week, I wanted to ask another question: From Rodgers point of view, what is the best team to play on in 2023? Any team that would trade for Rodgers would essentially need his blessing to justify a trade. Said team would also need to be a playoff contender. They would also need enough cap space to sign him. One other thing that might make an ideal destination: ability to take on Bakh. Trading him saves the Packers $6M, and Zach Tom might prove to be the future LT in the coming weeks while Bakh recovers from appendicitis. So with all of that in mind, here's my list of teams that I analyzed with this in mind: First Impressions: Rodgers has always mentioned wanting to retire a Packer, so that can't be ruled out. But if I'm him, I can't help but think about teams like the Seahawks and Commanders. Good rosters. I'd also have to give serious consideration to playing with Belichick in NE. Or even the Colts, if they were to decide to bring in Hackett to the staff. So the question for discussion: If you were Rodgers, and the money is all the same no matter where you go, would you stick with the Packers or try somewhere else, possibly bringing your buddy Bakh with you?
