The NFL Draft came and went and Aaron Rodgers remains atop the Green Bay Packers depth chart at quarterback.
Just hours before the announcement of the No. 1 overall pick, reports exploded all over social media that the three-time MVP and former Super Bowl champion QB of the Green Bay Packers is demanding a trade.
Nothing seems to have changed in terms of the Packers-Rodgers relationship, so bookmakers are starting to post odds on where he will play next season. Here is a look at the odds for the next team Rodgers will take a snap with in 2021 at PointsBet in Colorado.

Online sportsbooks may not yet be sold on a Rodgers-Packers split. Green Bay's Super Bowl odds and NFC Championship odds did shift downward following the draft and in the wake of the rumors.
At DraftKings, the Packers slid from the No. 6 betting favorite to advance to Super Bowl 56 at +1400 down to the No. 8 pick at +1700. Green Bay slipped to No. 4 from No. 2 to win the NFC (+800) behind Tampa Bay, the LA Rams and San Francisco in NFL futures odds. It appears bookmakers continue to lean toward speculation that the Packers would never let their franchise QB leave.
Never mind what happened to their last franchise QB, Brett Favre.
It turns out the draft day report on Rodgers by ESPN's Adam Schefter contained no new information. But the feeling that there is a rift between the quarterback and the Packers front office carries a whiff of legitimacy.
And other teams are ready to deal - if it comes to that. The leading contender to be Rodgers first team in 2021 outside Green Bay (-150) at PointsBet is the Denver Broncos (+130).
Social media rumors are often unfounded and quickly quashed. However, few NFL observers would be surprised if this one proved to be true. The relationship between Rodgers and Packers leadership has appeared strained over the last year-plus.
At the 2020 NFL Draft, the Packers were considered a receiver or linebacker away from being a legitimate Super Bowl contender. Instead, they infamously traded up to select Utah State QB Jordan Love in the first round. Rodgers made it clear then he was not pleased with the lack of urgency in trying to win another Lombardi Trophy.
Rodgers Had A Huge 2020
Rodgers went on to win his third NFL MVP and was one win away from another Super Bowl berth. He outplayed Tom Brady in the NFC Championship, but his Packers fell 31-26 at Lambeau Field. Coach Matt Lafleur’s questionable call to kick a field goal deep in Bucs territory instead of going for it certainly didn’t help.

A trade involving Rodgers would be one of the most significant moves in NFL history. Rodgers is coming off an MVP season, leading the Packers to a 14-2 regular-season record. At age 36, he has made no mention of retirement. In fact, he was talking contract extensions with the Packers. He’s signed through the 2023 season. There are reports the Packers told Rodgers he’d be traded in the offseason, but the team reversed course.
Rodgers would be an upgrade at QB for, arguably, every team in the NFL outside of perhaps Kansas City. The 49ers, Patriots, Broncos and Raiders have inquired about QB improvements in the past. For fans of NFL betting, this is one storyline to watch.
