NFL Rumors: Nathaniel Hackett pushing for the Broncos to trade for Aaron Rodgers

When Nathaniel Hackett became the head coach of the Denver Broncos, many wondered if he would convince Aaron Rodgers to jump.

Hackett is reportedly pushing for the Broncos to make a trade with the Green Bay Packers to deal for the current NFL MVP in Rodgers.

After Rodgers and the Packers lost the NFC Divisional Round Game to the San Francisco 49ers, many wondered if Rodgers had played his last game with the Packers.

Some have wondered with Rodgers potentially going to Denver in a deal, if Davante Adams will go with him; something Rodgers would likely push for.

The Packers, meanwhile, would like to keep Rodgers and reports have Green Bay ready to pay him an extension that will give him $45 million a season.

The only question is whether Rodgers will want to sign it and stay in Green Bay, or if he will follow his former offensive coordinator to Denver and try to finish his career the way Peyton Manning did.
