More than 12 years after the Green Bay Packers traded Brett Favre to the New York Jets and handed the franchise over to Aaron Rodgers, many around the NFL reportedly expect history to repeat itself in 2023.

Rodgers, the four-time NFL MVP, hasn’t committed to playing football next season. However, the Packers seem prepared to move on and it seems their franchise quarterback got the message. As he evaluates his option, early NFL trade rumors are flying about what could unfold this spring.

Despite coming off one of the worst seasons in his career, there are NFL teams interested in Rodgers. The Jets and Las Vegas Raiders are the early favorites to acquire the future Hall of Famer, but the list of suitors could expand if Rodgers commits to playing football next year.

Green Bay finds itself in a different position than it was a year ago. The Packers went all-in with Rodgers, making him one of the highest-paid NFL quarterbacks on a multi-year extension. In the following months, the coaching staff grew far more confident in Jordan Love and missing the playoffs sparked a growing belief that the roster will be overhauled this spring.
