The Green Bay Packers could drastically change the landscape of the NFL this offseason depending on what they do with quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. Should they be able to convince Rodgers to remain with them, they should stay among the best teams in the NFL despite their salary cap situation. If they are unable to convince Rodgers to stay, someone is getting the potential two-time reigning MVP, and it could be the Indianapolis Colts.

Numerous teams would love to add Rodgers as their starting quarterback. He is one of the greatest to ever do it and would make plenty of teams around the league into instant contenders should they acquire him.

Landing him from the Packers will not be cheap. They will likely hold out for multiple first-round picks as Green Bay will essentially be heading into a rebuild if Rodgers moves on. His exit would likely mean Davante Adams, an All-Pro in his own right would be moving on as well.

One team to keep an eye on when it comes to Rodgers is the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts had the most disappointing finish to the 2021 season, losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 18 when all they needed to make the playoffs was to win the game.

One of the players who came up woefully short in that game was quarterback Carson Wentz. Wentz didn’t have too bad of a season with the Colts, but he was unable to elevate his game when the team needed him most.

One person that is pushing to make Rodgers to the Coltshappen is former Colts punter, Pat McAfee. McAfee has Rodgers on his show, The Pat McAfee Show, weekly. On his most recent appearance, McAfee pitched, joining his old team to Rodgers.

As McAfee points out, Indianapolis has a roster that is prime to contend with a quarterback of his caliber leading the way. They have an excellent offensive line and one of the best running backs in the NFL in MVP contender Jonathan Taylor.

Ownership has made it clear they will make changes if necessary to get this team closer to a Super Bowl. While they have not said for sure if they would move on from Wentz, if the opportunity presented itself, it is something they would have to seriously consider.
