While the Packers are reluctant to let go off their franchise QB, Rodgers’ actions suggest he won’t be kitting up for the franchise anytime soon. Or perhaps ever again.

But then where might the quarterback go? Which side can provide him the platform that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers provided to Tom Brady? One NFL analyst believes that team belongs in the AFC West.

“I really do think based on the stuff that you hear when you put your ear to the ground that maybe the Denver Broncos could do that,” Riddick said.

Explaining as to why the side can provide Rodgers the support he needs, Riddick highlighted the offense and Head Coach Vic Fangio’s role.

“Just think of the weaponry that they have, the improvements they made on the offensive line, the people they have running the football. Along with a defensive minded head coach who can scheme it up and play top 10 defense on a consistent basis in coach Fangio.”

But perhaps the key role in snagging Rodgers falls on the interest of Broncos GM George Paton. “You have a GM right now, who clearly from all indications is very interested in what’s going on with Aaron Rodgers. He’s very interested in talking with the Packers if they really do want to talk.”
