Therefore, the possibility of the four-time MVP leaving Green Bay is still on the table.
Things can change so quickly in the league that the positive talk Rodgers had with general manager Brian Gutekunst after the 2021 season might not mean anything next week.
If that’s the case, the Packers could deal Rodgers elsewhere if he doesn’t decide to retire either.
However, his massive cap hit will limit the teams that are capable of absorbing his salary.
With Rodgers set to count $27.5 million against the Packers’ cap for 2022, Spotrac identified the teams that have enough space to possibly trade for him.
Teams with enough projected space to acquire Aaron Rodgers’ $27.5M cap figure via trade:

Based on the tweet above, there’s no sense for some of those teams to acquire Rodgers.
Besides, the Bengals would need the cap room to build a solid offensive line to protect last season’s Comeback Player of the Year.
Other than those teams, every other squad on the list will get a massive boost if they will land the veteran quarterback from Cal.
Which Team Has The Best Shot Of Landing Rodgers?
The Indianapolis Colts could be an intriguing destination for Rodgers because they have Jonathan Taylor in the backfield and a solid offensive line.
Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos feel that their quarterback depth chart hinders them from becoming AFC contenders.
Those teams have the best chance of making the playoffs, especially if Rodgers starts under center.
