Title: Aaron Rodgers: Still Not Going to San Francisco

It’s been almost two decades since the San Francisco 49ers passed on Aaron Rodgers in the 2005 NFL Draft, and it looks like the four-time MVP quarterback is still holding a grudge. In a recent interview while playing at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Rodgers was asked if he had any news and his reply was blunt: “I’m not going to San Fran.”

The Niners had the first overall pick that year and chose Alex Smith instead of Rodgers, who went 24th overall to the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers has since gone on to have a Hall of Fame career, leading the Packers to a Super Bowl victory and earning four MVP awards.

But now, Rodgers’ future in Wisconsin is up in the air with rumors swirling that the two parties are ready to break up. The Packers have the third overall pick from the 2021 NFL Draft in Trey Lance, who suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 2. It’s safe to say that the team doesn’t exactly need help in the QB room.

Reports also say that if the Packers do trade Rodgers, they prefer to trade him to the AFC. Rodgers recently spoke highly of his former offensive coordinator, Nathaniel Hackett, who just joined the New York Jets in the same position in a move that seemingly is the start of their run for the four-time MVP.

Rodgers has two years remaining on his three-year pact worth north of $150 million. It will be interesting to see how this situation unfolds in the coming months and if Rodgers will finally get his chance to play for the team he rooted for as a kid.
