The Denver Honeytrap
In 2022, the Denver Broncos tried their utmost to lure Rodgers to Colorado. In the end, they failed and settled for Russell Wilson. This was a disaster because the former Seahawks star had the worst season of his career. Meanwhile, Rodgers acted selfishly because he manipulated Green Bay using the Broncos’ interest (via Denver Sports).
One NFL executive revealed that Denver desperately wanted Rodgers and gave up too much for Russell. They said: “Aaron Rodgers, I could understand giving up that sort of package, but not Russell. Denver didn’t have any familiarity with the player or his fit in the system, and he’s declining as an aging, smaller quarterback.”
