It was reported heading into the draft that Rodgers was fed up with the Green Bay Packers organization and would no longer play for them.
A new report from Adam Schefter suggests Aaron Rodgers and the Packers aren't solving their problems any time soon:https://t.co/Zzx0Tw2H77

Shortly after this, the Broncos came to the forefront as potential suitors in a trade.

Along with this, they traded down in the draft when they could have selected potential star quarterback Justin Fields.
With the young pieces and draft capital that they possess, the Broncos could make a trade happen.
However, would Rodgers be a good fit in Denver?
There are pros and cons to adding Rodgers on the team for both parties involved.
The first pro for Rodgers being a good fit for the team is their receiving core.
The Broncos have two receivers who have the potential of being Pro Bowl-caliber players.
While Jeudy still has a ways to go before making a Pro Bowl, with a quarterback like Rodgers throwing to him, it could easily happen.
Sutton already had a Pro Bowl appearance in 2019.
He hoped to repeat this in the 2020 season, however, he suffered a season ending injury in the first game of the year.
Rodgers has the ability of raising the ceiling of the receivers around him.
He is often expected to be one of the top passing offenses in the league even if the talent around him is lacking.
If he joins the Broncos and has two already talented receivers, the Broncos could have a very scary passing attack.
The second reason that Rodgers would be a good fit on the Broncos is that they are an organization that he will have a say in.
The major reason as to why Rodgers allegedly wants to leave the Packers is that they drafted his replacement in the first round of the previous draft rather than selecting a player that could help the team win now.
This will not be something that he has to worry about on the Broncos.
They have not had an elite quarterback since Peyton Manning retired.
If they bring in Rodgers, he will have the keys to the franchise.
Along with this, the Broncos have the second most cap space in the NFL.
With this money, they could greatly improve their defense and put a talented offense around Rodgers.
Although there are a handful of pros for Rodgers being a good fit on the Broncos, there are just as many if not more cons.
The first con being the Broncos have one of the worst offensive lines in the entire NFL.
Pro Football Focus ranked them 25th out of the 32 offensive lines in the league.
In comparison, the Packers ranked second on the same list.
The second major con is that the Broncos defense is lackluster at best.
While they have some solid pieces on the defensive end, the unit as a whole is in the bottom half of the league.
Finally, if the Broncos trade for Rodgers, they will effectively be ending their rebuild far too soon.
The roster is not ready to contend yet even with one of the best quarterbacks in the league on the team.
Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks that the NFL has to offer.
He would be a solid fit on any roster and raise both the floor and ceiling of almost any team he joined.
While he would make the Broncos a playoff team, they would by no means be Super Bowl contenders.
Despite being a solid fit anywhere he goes, there are much better fits for him than the Denver Broncos.
