Does Nathaniel Hackett taking the Broncos HC job mean Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams follow him to Denver?

On Thursday, Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett took the Denver Broncos head coaching job.

Hackett replaces Vic Fangio, who had three subpar seasons in Denver and will look to change the direction in Denver.

One way to change the direction in Denver is the possibility of Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams going down in Denver to join Hackett.

Rodgers future with the Packers certainly doesn’t look good, and Adams is a pending free agent who may want to stick with Rodgers if he plays elsewhere in 2022.

The speculation on Rodgers leaving Green Bay has been ongoing for over a year and the speculation on it being for Denver has been rampant with Hackett being a possibility for Denver.

Now, Hackett is the head coach in Denver. So the speculating of Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams going to the Broncos can now begin.
