The San Francisco 49ers had a pretty successful season, going on a 12-game winning streak before getting blown out by the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game.
But the quarterback position is in flux once again, as starter Brock Purdy has a torn UCL in his elbow and former starter Jimmy Garoppolo appears to be on his way out.
There have been some whispers that the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers may be headed to San Francisco, but he said that will not be happening.
“Hey Aaron, you got any news you want to share with us?”
Rodgers: “I’m not going to San Fran.”

Rodgers is 39 years of age, and although his play has declined somewhat, there are surely at least a few teams that would love to have his services next season.
Still, the last season or two have been frustrating for him.
In 2021, he became embroiled in controversy when he lied about being vaccinated against COVID-19, and later, he started promoting widely debunked conspiracy theories about such vaccines.
Just weeks later, his Packers, who were tied for the best record in the NFC at 13-4, lost in the divisional round of the playoffs to the 49ers at Lambeau Field while scoring just 10 points.
This year, with his top target, Davante Adams gone to the Las Vegas Raiders, Green Bay’s offense struggled as the team lost eight of its first 12 games.
It then won four in a row, generating some hope that it could sneak into the playoffs, but its Week 18 loss to the Detroit Lions eliminated it from postseason contention.
Rodgers grew up in Northern California, which would make it seem like a natural move for him to join the 49ers, but they would have to give up plenty of assets to get him for what could be a one or two-year rental, so in some ways, it may not make complete sense.NEXT: George Kittle Asked Brock Purdy A Wild In-Game Question
