The NFL has become one of the world’s most popular reality shows.
Between offseason drama, contract disputes, and players wanting more money than ever before, the league continues to provide endless entertainment.
Update: The #Packers will not be trading Aaron Rodgers within the NFC Conference.

If the Packers do end up trading Rodgers away, it appears that he will not be headed to an NFC opponent.
Let the games begin.
Although this report doesn’t necessarily guarantee that the Packers will trade Rodgers, the fact that this comment is even being made indicates that trade talks are certainly on the table, and are more real now than ever before.
Several AFC teams could use a player of Rodgers’ caliber, including the Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans, and Las Vegas Raiders.
Let’s start with the Raiders.
If the Packers were to make a trade with the Raiders, they would have to take on Carr’s contract, which would be a similar cap hit to Rodgers’ contract.
When looking at the Colts and the Texans, neither team has the types of offensive weapons that Rodgers is looking for, especially at this point in his career.
There could be a team that is less obvious as a trade partner that could come out of the woodwork.
Rodgers might have two to three more MVP-type seasons left.
Who will he end up with?
