Aaron Rodgers Next Team Odds: Sin City, Big Apple in play?

Aaron Rodgers fueled speculation about his NFL future by refusing to change jerseys and leaving Lambeau Field with his arm wrapped around wide receiver Randall Cobb’s shoulders on Sunday night.

After the season-ending loss to Detroit, Rodgers said the gesture was about appreciation for his longtime Packers teammate and not symbolic. But he also did not say he plans to return to Green Bay for another season.

The four-time NFL MVP said he will take some time to think about whether “it’s time to get off” the carousel.

The odds of Rodgers retiring went from probable at SportsBetting.ag last week to -400 on Monday, against +250 that he would hang up.

He said he won’t hold the Packers “hostage” and will make his decision before free agency begins in March.

Rodgers also acknowledged that Green Bay has a young team and whether he believes the Packers have the personnel to be a playoff threat could weigh heavily in his next move.

His three-year, $150 million contract calls for Rodgers to make $58.3 million next season. It would be prohibitive for the Packers to cut Rodgers, but they would be on the hook for his $31.6 million salary cap if the 39-year-old returns or is potentially traded.

According to OverTheCap.com, Green Bay would take a $66.99 million cap hit if Rodgers were to be traded before June 1. A trade after June 1 would provide a savings of $1.215 million, but the Packers would still be on the hook for $30.4 million in dead money against their cap.

Speculation has already begun about possible destinations, and SportsBetting.ag is offering odds on where Rodgers could end up if he decides to play another season for someone other than the Packers.

In Las Vegas, Rodgers would be reunited with wide receiver Davante Adams. The trade of Adams to the Raiders last offseason was a sore point for Rodgers, who regularly referenced the inexperience and mistakes of his young receivers this season.

Las Vegas is also coached by Josh McDaniels, who won six Super Bowls in New England with Tom Brady. The Raiders also have a capable position personnel that includes a dynamic running back in Josh Jacobs, an elite receiving tight end in Darren Waller and an excellent slot receiver in Hunter Renfrow.

The sportsbook also offers odds on who will replace Derek Carr in Las Vegas, with Brady (+275) and the 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo (+350) currently ahead of Rodgers at +400.

The Colts and Titans are both in the AFC South, which was won by the Jacksonville Jaguars with a 9-8 record this season.

Indianapolis has gone the veteran quarterback route three times in a row, with Matt Ryan following in the footsteps of Philip Rivers and Carson Wentz. The Colts are also in the market for a new coach, but they have a roster loaded with talent that is ready to be competitive with an experienced quarterback.

The story is similar in Tennessee, where Ryan Tannehill has been at the helm of a first offense led by Derrick Henry. Tannehill is under contract through 2025, but he ended this season with an ankle injury, and the Titans could take advantage of the chance to add Rodgers to a roster that boasts a stout defense.

Airplanes are another intriguing possibility. After winning four straight games to go 5-2, Robert Saleh’s crew hit a skid, losing eight of their last 10 games to finish 7-10 and in last place in the AFC East.

However, the Jets showed a lot of promise this season, with Saleh’s typically stout defense keeping them in games. It was the quarterback play that let them down, especially that of 2022 No. 2 pick Zach Wilson.

With Mike White a free agent, there’s little doubt the Jets will look for an experienced veteran to lead an offense with promising young players, including wide receiver Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall, who is returning from injury. of ACL, but expected. to be ready for the start of the next season.

The Jets are also being offered as a +275 favorite by SportsBetting.ag to be Carr’s next team as the NFL quarterback carousel begins to spin.

Rodgers is being offered at +500 along with White behind Carr and Garoppolo (+375) to start Week 1 for the Jets next season.
