Aaron Rodgers' situation with the Green Bay Packers seems unbearable right now. Far from trying to make amends, the team president Mark Murphy called him a 'complicated fella', prompting more rumors around the NFL.
Rodgers is livid with the organization and looks eager to being traded right away. He didn't show up to the team's minicamp and some people around the league say that he's willing to sit out the season or even retire if they don't grant him his wish.
Amid the turmoil, the Las Vegas Raiders and mainly the Denver Broncos have been named as possible destinations for the reigning NFL MVP. However, superstar pass-rusher Von Miller says that he just doesn't want to talk about that.
Von Miller Says Aaron Rodgers Makes Any Team A Contender, But It's Not Focused On That
“It’s crazy to think about, you know, getting an Aaron Rodgers,” Miller said, as quoted by NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk. “You put him on any team in the league and he changes that team.”
“If you get too emotionally involved in those guys, and then it doesn’t happen, now you got [Drew] Lock over here looking like (...) what about now?'” Miller added. “So you don’t want to get too emotionally attached to the rumors. (...) You start thinking, ‘Oh, we’re going to get Aaron Rodgers or Deshaun Watson. But hold on, wait a minute, we’ve got Drew Lock. That’s who we’re running with. That’s who we’re going into the season with until anything changes.”
That's a valid and fair point from Miller. The Broncos need to focus on playing with either Drew Lock or Teddy Bridgewater as their starting quarterback, and if they manage to get Rodgers, so be it.
Aaron Rodgers is one of the greatest gunslingers in NFL history and with their elite defense, they'd be instant Super Bowl contenders. But for now, they'll have to work with the hand they're given.
