The Denver Broncos are keeping their cards close to their chest. Signing QB Teddy Bridgewater to compete with Drew Lock for the starting play-calling position, the Broncos have some thinking to do.

But even with two starting QBs on their roster, the franchise is reportedly keen on signing another. And that is none other than Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.

Aaron Rodgers failed to turn up to his side’s OTAs and mandatory minicamp. Whether or not he skips training camp altogether or not remains to be seen. The uncertainty surrounding his future continues to grow with each passing day.

While the Packers have said that they are not interested in letting go of Rodgers, a big-enough trade deal could swing the tide. And the Broncos seem the best fit for the 2020 NFL MVP.

But with the franchise yet to make a move for the QB, one has to wonder whether or not the Rodgers trade will ever come to fruition.

“First and foremost, everyone is definitely excited about the Aaron Rodgers talk — whether it will come to fruition or not, we don’t really know, so we only have to deal with the quarterbacks that we already have in Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater,” said Ferguson.

Referencing a Week 9 game against the Kansas City Chiefs last season, when Bridgewater was the QB for the Carolina Panthers, Ferguson said that it’s that decision-making that has him hyped about Bridgewater’s chances.
