Many fans apparently think it’s crazy that Aaron Rodgers isn’t getting more love on the current NFL trade market.
Turns out, if you ask current Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst, he will tell you that just one — yep one team — has called Green Bay to see what the asking price for Rodgers is.
“I had no [trade] discussions with any team. I received one call from a team Thursday night, after all the news came out. I said, ‘No.’ That was the end of the conversation,” Gutekunst told Peter King for his Monday column.
The Packers’ franchise quarterback last week said that he would like to be traded, and that as long as Gutekunst is the GM of the Packers, that he won’t be playing quarterback for them.
If the Packers wind up trading Rodgers at some point, it won’t be the first time Green Bay has had issues making their quarterbacks happy.
Who can forget when Favre ‘retired’ only to come back to be dealt to the New York Jets, and then after yet another ‘retirement’ he wound up in a hostile situation playing in purple for the Minnesota Vikings, one of the Packers’ biggest rivals?
