Hey, the New York Giants are allowed to dream.
And a trade for disgruntled Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers shouldn’t be ruled out, according to Joe Giglio of NJ.com.
“In fact, the idea of the reigning NFL MVP being traded from the Green Bay Packers to the Giants in a spring or summer blockbuster before training camp shouldn’t be ruled out,” Giglio wrote.
Rodgers is said to be looking for a trade out of Green Bay. Word is, he’s only willing to return if general manager Brian Gutekunst is canned.
The Denver Broncos are believed to be the frontrunners in a potential Rodgers trade. But Giglio proposed several trades for the Giants that just might work. A couple of them would be massive. But if you want to turn things around from a 6-10 finish, as the Giants want to do, you need to swing for the fences.
Besides, there’s no reason for the Packers to keep holding onto Rodgers.
“This is ugly. Rodgers seems dug in. The only way out is more money and more commitment to an aging quarterback that Green Bay seemed content to move on from eventually just one year ago,” Giglio wrote. “Would totally reversing course and caving now be the Packers’ way? It wouldn’t. Move on. Go separate ways. Take the biggest offer ASAP.”
