Rams GM Les Snead Makes It Sound Like Aaron Rodgers Is A Possibility

Videos by OutKick

Rams GM Les Snead was asked by a reporter whether Jared Goff was their future quarterback, and his answer was juicy:

“He’s a Ram right now, what’s today? Jan. 26…”, Snead said.

He could’ve said, “Look, guys, we’re evaluating our team, and we’ll figure that our down the road.” But he didn’t. He got petty and couldn’t have made Goff’s future in L.A. sound more uncertain.

What’s even more interesting is what he said about Packers’ star Aaron Rodgers:

Well, no answer is really an answer in itself. Jared Goff is signed to a four-year, $134 million deal. If you can’t answer whether that guy is your future, there’s a disconnect.

It sounds more likely that they’re making statements about evaluating the future to make sure they don’t diminish Goff’s trade value.

We also can’t ignore Les Snead’s reference to Aaron Rodgers’ quote on a “beautiful mystery.” Is it possible that Aaron Rodgers wants to ditch Wisconsin for the sunshine of Los Angeles? After his 20-year tenure with the Patriots, Tom Brady just handpicked a squad and turned it into another success story. So why couldn’t Rodgers do the same?

He probably feels he can. And why wouldn’t he? He’s the MVP.

Pay close attention to the Rodgers camp going forward because the Rams might be calling for a discount double-check soon enough.

  1. Seriously stop it already. The Packers have Rodgers under contract, why would they trade him? And if so, why would they trade him to a NFC team?…not going to happen. I know the Jets need a QB, that would be a more likely destination, and GB would have never looked so good. Rodgers will be the Pack’s QB in 2021, after that who knows.

      • I agree with Gary, Son of Gary, here. Probably smoke, but the Rams are much better positioned to win a Super Bowl than the Packers. Trade me or I’ll retire, exactly. Rams instantly become the favorite out of the NFC, no doubt. Package Rodgers with McVay and that Rams D, lookout. Of all this places Rodgers could go, this makes the most sense if he doesn’t want to stay in Green Bay. He certainly wouldn’t go to the Jets at the end of his career, that’s silly.

      • He can’t force them to trade him to the Rams; really think the Packers would trade Rodgers in the first place? No way, not now…and secondly, if and when they do, he’ll be going to an AFC team.

  2. From a Rams standpoint, and from Rodgers standpoint, this would be an excellent fit. For Green Bay, given the NFC North, they would come back to the rest of the division, but a shade better than mediocre wins that division. Having a starting QB on a rookie deal, gives them flexibility to rebuild on the fly, and they don’t have to cater to Rodgers. The thing is this year there is going to be a lot of QB movement around the league, so trade value may not be what everyone thinks it is.

  3. What the trade speculators fail to mention is the trade capital and salary cap implications of the gaining team. What would it take for Green Bay to trade a three time MVP QB coming off his best season? Two first round picks and a star player in return? Maybe more? Talk is now that Matt Stafford is worth a 1st and 2nd round pick. If so, what is Rodgers worth? Also, the Rams (and most other teams) don’t have enough salary cap space to take on Rodgers’ contract and absorb the dead money from Goff’s contract. The pundits make it sound so simple like it is just a matter of Rodgers wanting out of Green Bay. Need to do a Ven diagram to narrow down a realistic group of potential suitors. I suspect the list would be small and few of those teams Rodgers would want to go to. The New York Jets anyone? Les Snead is just blowing smoke.
