An NFL executive has speculated that the Las Vegas Raiders could be a landing point for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers during the 2021 offseason.
Mike Sando of The Athletic reported on Friday that the anonymous executive sees the Raiders as a “destination of choice” for Rodgers in the Packers to go ahead with 2020’s first choice Jordan Love at QB.
Any transaction next year would likely require a major two-year restructuring of the NFL MVP, $ 134 million. Contract.
If Green Bay negotiates or releases Rodgers for the next off-season, it would face massive ramifications of the salary cap:
- Before June 1: $ 31.6 million cap for 2021
- After June 1: $ 14.4 million for 2021 and $ 17.2 million for 2022 in deadlock
Financial figures start to become more manageable in 2022. Its agreement runs until 2023.
Meanwhile, the Raiders’ Derek Carr has just had the best statistical season of his career.
The 29-year-old California native made 70.4% of his throws for 4,054 yards with 21 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 16 games. He added two hurried scores.
Carr ranks ninth among qualified quarters in the ferryman classification (100.8) and 10th in ESPN Total QBR (62.2).
Las Vegas added Tennessee Titans starter Marcus Mariota to $ 17.6 million two-year contract Contract in a free agency in March to take over. Carr’s treat goes through the 2022 season.
So while an argument could be made about the power of the Rodgers stars as a major asset to the Raiders as they try to build their fan base in Vegas, the logistics of trying to acquire it the next off-season is delicate.
It is not even known if the Packers will seek to move the selection eight times Pro Bowl before the end of his contract after the selection of Love by the front office.
Rodgers sat behind Brett Favre for three years after being selected in the 2005 draft first round before resuming the starting position in 2008.
