Packers stopped Rams interest in acquiring Aaron Rodgers

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to the Los Angeles Times reporter Sam Farmer, the Los Angeles Rams attempted to acquire Aaron Rodgers. However, the Rams were told by the Green Bay Packers that the future Hall of Famer is not available.

Farmer is reporting that the Packers were ‘adamant’ that Rodgers is not going anywhere. Following the NFC Championship game in a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Rodgers said that his future needs to be decided.

Since the loss, the Packers appear to work out their differences with Rodgers. He’ll be back with the team in 2021.

There’s also a report that suggests that Rodgers would like a contract extension before the start of the 2021 season. Despite being signed for several more seasons, Rodgers could sign an extension that would give the Packers more flexibility.

The Rams eventually settled on Matthew Stafford. He will be the team’s new quarterback once the new league year starts.

For the Rams to acquire Stafford, the Detroit Lions will receive a lot in return in the lopsided trade. In addition to Jared Goff, the Lions are receiving two first-round draft picks and a third-round draft pick.
