3. Aaron Rodgers
It’s not that Aaron Rodgers isn’t one of the best quarterbacks in the league right now. How can you argue against that? He’s now won back-to-back MVP titles and has gotten the Packers the top seed in the NFC in each of those two seasons.
For the Saints to trade for Rodgers, they’d have to give up a ton of draft picks and pay him money they simply don’t have. All of that for a guy who just turned 38 in December doesn’t seem like a good investment.
Not only that but if we’re talking about the promised land, Rodgers has only been there once. Yes, he’s gotten the Packers to the No. 1 seed in the NFC the past two years but what have they done with those top seeds? They narrowly missed the Super Bowl in 2020 and were bounced in the NFC Divisional Round this year.
Some might say Rodgers would be the answer in New Orleans (looking at you, Cam Jordan) but with what it’d take to get him and the drama he tends to cause off the field, I’ll pass.
