Packers GM Brian Gutekunst talks about Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love and pursuit of a Super Bowl

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Last March, the Green Bay Packers signed Aaron Rodgers to a three-year contract extension.

They had another option. They could have traded Rodgers to a franchise he’d be willing to play for and would have been heavily compensated in return.

The Denver Broncos’ new coach (Nathaniel Hackett), for instance, was Rodgers’ offensive coordinator the previous three years. There’s no reason to think the Broncos wouldn’t have offered for Rodgers at least the same package as they sent the Seattle Seahawks for Russell Wilson. In essence, that was two first-round picks (in 2022 and ’23), two second-rounders and three players.
