While there was no direct ceremony of Friday business involving the San Francisco 49ers, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Miami Dolphins, it doesn’t take a huge leap to spin it into good news for those who are fans of claiming Aaron Rogers. Green Bay Packers.
The Packers front office fee has wrapped up the contract maneuver, which will keep the team’s mainstay alive for the next few seasons, but much has been done to the fact that nothing has been done to change the status of Rogers’ current contract, which passes. 2023 season.
Does that mean the Packers feel like they haven’t done anything on that front yet, as Packers author Tom Silverstein suggests, or because they’ve already done so in 2019, there’s been a lot of speculation about Rogers’ future at Green Bay Has been. It is further inflamed by the non-committed nature of the quarterback’s comments after the second loss in the NFC Championship game.
If Rogers’ time at Green Bay is really coming to an end, he will probably be interested in a team that was able to make a Super Bowl run, needed a quarterback and was not a young quarterback compared to Jordan Love. His neck.
The Las Vegas Riders, the New England Patriots and 49 others have been bandaged.
So how will Friday’s news be implemented?
With the 49ers now the No. 3 pick in the 2021 draft, the consensus is that the team will pick a quarterback. Then whether it’s Justin Fields, Trey Trains, Zack Wilson or anyone else irrelevant here – that player will be young and talented. And with Jimmy Garoppolo nowhere to be found – at least not yet – he won’t present the most tempting situation for Rodgers to move to San Francisco.
The 49ers were one of the teams that I was concerned that, speaking as a Packers fan, could catch Rogers’ eye. He paired up with one of Kyle Shanahan’s best attacking minds in the game, keeping the combination of playing in the team as a child, looking like a combination for a possible final act as Rogers made his early 40s. Now with the potential number 3 overall choice in the folds, it was less likely to be combined.
Let’s take it a step further and say that 49ers participate with Jimmy G. The very popular landing spot for Garoppolo is back with Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. That revaluation really makes a lot of sense to be, but can it take the Patriots off the table for Rogers’ swan song?
Is Rogers’ prospect of going to San Francisco or New England ever real? It is impossible to predict the future, but there are many limited options if it leaves Green Bay. Most of those options have never been possible, as soon as the team doesn’t need a quarterback (Kansas City, Buffalo) there are potential young studs (Chargers, Bengals, Jacksonville?) Or Wern ‘t will be competitive enough to get his attention. No (Ahem, Detroit).
There are only 31 teams in the league that are not named Green Bay Packers. While it would only take Rogers to sign, it would be the right situation for him. And after Friday, a team like San Francisco is less likely to make Rogers a victim for the end of his career.
