As Aaron Rodgers considers all of his options, apparently the Tennessee Titans have emerged as a possible landing spot for the talented quarterback.
Aaron Rodgers is going to have a number of suitors and potential destinations as he has the chance to leave the Green Bay Packers, but one team over in the AFC might be an interesting match for the talented quarterback.
Reportedly, Rodgers isn’t averse to joining them.
According to Jared Stillman of ESPN Nashville 102.5, Rodgers is buying some property somewhere in Franklin, Tennessee (a pretty wealthy suburb just to the south of the city) and he might be “open” to taking a look at the Tennessee Titans.
That’s huge for the AFC South.
Aaron Rodgers rumors: Will Aaron Rodgers leave Green Bay Packers for Tennessee Titans?
The Titans already have a very strong team that could be a contender, even without a legitimately great quarterback leading it. With a dominant defense, strong offensive line, and fantastic rushing attack, the Titans have a roster that can win without a great quarterback. Add Rodgers to the mix and the rest of the very dysfunctional AFC South should immediately be very concerned.
This would be a brilliant pairing for everyone involved if it were to happen, but there’s a chance that it might be nothing.
Nashville is a popular place for people to move to right now, and it’s been that way for a few years. The way the city has grown, it’s not as cheap to live there as it used to be, but it’s still relatively affordable when compared to large metropolitan areas on the East and West coasts.
Like an extremely long list of other people, it’s totally possible Rodgers is looking at buying a house somewhere he simply wants to live. He could be examining the real estate market and thinking it’d be better to buy there now rather than once he’s done in the NFL.
Nashville is a cool city and people have been flocking there for years. Maybe that’s all that Rodgers is doing.
While it’s possible he’s intent on joining a team and elevating it to where it would almost certainly be the Super Bowl favorite, maybe he just likes the idea of going to the overpriced celebrity bars on Broadway and spending way too much money at trendy brunch establishments in The Gulch.
