Aaron Rodgers appears to have come out of the shadows into the light as his future in football appears to be well within reach.
For the fourth consecutive offseason, speculation surrounding Aaron Rodgers and his future with Green Bay continues to abound. Although Rodgers recently said a decision will be made “soon enough”, that time may not come quickly enough for some.
With Rodgers still undecided on his next move, other teams may now consider trading for Green Bay. New York in particular: Reports indicate they are interested in acquiring a veteran quarterback and after missing out on Derek Carr, Rodgers could provide them with another viable option.
The Raiders, who released Carr, now face a QB void to fill. However, it remains uncertain if Vegas is interested in signing 39-year-old Rodgers, who would likely need a win-now option as he enters the latter stages of his career.
Here is the latest on Rodgers, his future and which teams are interested in signing him:

After much speculation, it appears the Raiders may not be interested in Rodgers after all.
