Out of the darkness and into the light, Aaron Rodgers’ future is just about in sight.

For the fourth straight offseason, rumors surrounding Rodgers and his future with Green Bay are swirling. While the quarterback recently said a decision on his next move will be “soon enough” that soon enough isn’t, well, quite soon enough.

Rodgers’ indecision on his next step has opened a window for other teams to at least discuss a trade with Green Bay. First, New York: The Jets have been reported to be hot after a veteran quarterback, and after missing out on Derek Carr, Rodgers would make sense as a next option.

The Raiders, who released Carr, have their own QB void to fill, but it’s unclear if Vegas is a fit for the 39-year-old Rodgers, who would likely want a win-now option as he enters the twilight of his career.

As it turns out, the Raiders may not be hot after Rodgers after all. NBC Sports’ Peter King reports that “if there’s a Rodgers derby,” then don’t expect the Raiders to be a part of it. The Raiders may hone in on Jimmy Garoppolo, whose contract they may be able to control, as he’s a free agent.

Apparently, teams have called up the Packers to trade for Rodgers, but his complex contract may pose a hurdle in a deal getting done. With his 2023 upfront cash being a deterrent to some teams, Green Bay hasn’t found the right trade partner for the quarterback just yet.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, Rodgers tops the Raiders’ wish list of starters for 2023, according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano. Las Vegas is also checking in with free agent Jimmy Garoppolo and, maybe, Mac Jones. The latter seems unlikely, however.
