Dallas radio host proposes crazy trade that would send Aaron Rodgers to Cowboys
That would certainly be a crazy swap of quarterbacks if this deal were to go down.
Rodgers is coming off a strong 2021 regular-season that netted him his second-consecutive NFL MVP award and his fourth overall. His play helped the Packers clinch the top seed in the NFC, but they lost to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round. After the game, Rodgers said that he will take some time to make a decision regarding his future. Upon winning the MVP, Rodgers reiterated that stance.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Packers are ready to spend as much money as possible to help convince Rodgers return for another season. That strategy will certainly require some cap maneuverability, as Green Bay is $48 million over the cap, per Spotrac.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys are coming off of a season where they were expected to make a deep run in the playoffs. Their run was short lived, as they were eliminated in the Wild Card Round by the 49ers. You can never count out team owner Jerry Jones, who is never afraid to make a big splash move. Even so, would the Cowboys even try to pursue Rodgers, since they just signed Prescott to a huge contract extension last season?
