NFL teams looking for a veteran quarterback this offseason could potentially get closer to the Green Bay Packers, But according to an NFL insider, any deal that includes four-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers would come at a steep price.
After failing to make the playoffs, Rogers made it clear that he was undecided about his future with the team.
«We’ve had all the conversations I think we want to have about football right now,» Rodgers said last week after meeting with leadership. «They’re not pushing for any kind of specific answer, and I’m not mentally or physically at that point to give one.»

«Because of the way his contract is structured, a trade is possible. You could do it financially. You could come up with compensation. I think Green Bay likes what they have in Jordan Love. So if they got the right package, I think they could make a deal: it would be $60 million for one season, someone would pay him. That’s what it’s on the books for, cash, next year.»
Rapoport also noted that the deal would likely include a first-round draft pick and «probably more» as well.

«So, you could do it, but that’s an astronomical amount for a quarterback.»
Rodgers signed a three-year extension in the offseason, but said in June that «there will certainly be decisions after this year.»
