Aaron Rodgers next team odds: Lines for retirement, Raiders, Jets, 49ers
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was back in the news this weekend after teaming with PGA pro Ben Silverman to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament.
Of course, that reignited the Rodgers rumor – what will the four-time NFL MVP be doing this coming season?
Rodgers, 39, is in the middle of a three-year, $150.82 million contract extension (with two more option years, which would see him through 2026).
What’s next for Rodgers? Back to the Packers, even though Green Bay traded to sign heir apparent Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 draft? Rodgers isn’t showing many signs of slowing down — he’s won two of his four NFL MVP awards since Green Bay drafted Love.
Rodgers owes nearly $60 million in guaranteed money next season as part of the contract extension he signed with the Packers in early 2022.
There are a lot of teams that need a quality quarterback.
The Las Vegas Raiders and longtime starter David Carr have agreed to part ways. Can you imagine Rodgers being a headliner in Vegas with Adele and Bruno Mars if he reunites with receiver Davante Adams?
Zach Wilson was the No. 2 overall pick for the New York Jets in 2021, but he has exhausted his reception in the Big Apple. Maybe Rodgers is changing the jerseys to another shade of green?
Rodgers recently said he has no interest in returning to his hometown to play for the San Francisco 49ers, who — despite using four quarterbacks this season — reached the NFC Championship Game last month.
But could the lure of coming home (Rodgers is from Chico and played for the California Bears) take him west?
And the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may be looking for a new QB after Tom Brady announced his retirement.
FOX Bet has the latest hypothetical odds on Rodgers’ future.

*Quote as of 07/02/2023
The Raiders have risen to the top of FOX Bet’s theoretical odds because Rodgers and Adams meeting in Vegas — and Carr likely moving on — makes too much sense.
Additionally, Adams’ Twitter activity has fueled speculation.
There’s something to be said for a quarterback to play his entire Hall of Fame career with one team, so the Packers are still considered a favorite to retain him.
“It would make sense for Rodgers to switch conferences if he were to leave Green Bay,” said Dylan Brossman, senior director of business operations at FOX Bet. “The Raiders need a QB (assuming Carr is gone) and have something no other team can offer – Rodgers’ best WR he’s ever played with. A reunion makes a lot of sense for them. two parts.
*Maybe we’ll get some clarification after his ‘retreat into darkness’.”
What does Aaron Rodgers’ future look like with the Green Bay Packers?
FOX Sports NFL analyst Greg Jennings joins Colin Cowherd on The Herd to discuss Aaron Rodgers’ future with the Green Bay Packers in 2023.
If Rodgers wants to play elsewhere, however, he will have plenty of options. One could trace the path taken by former teammate Brett Farve in moving from the Packers to the Jets, who have an exciting young core of talent on both sides but plenty of questions at quarterback.
The 49ers, like the Jets, haven’t gotten much production from their top-3 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft at quarterback. Trey Lance played just six quarterbacks to start the 2022 season before suffering a season-ending ankle injury in Week 2. The 49ers have a packed roster and got some surprisingly strong performances from the sixth-grader rookie round Brock Purdy at quarterback after Jimmy Garoppolo was also injured. but they had to resort to fourth-string QB Josh Johnson in the playoffs.
Rodgers has won back-to-back MVPs in offense from Matt LaFleur, an important branch of Shanahan’s coaching tree. He would likely have an easy transition into the offensive scheme of Kyle Shanahan himself.
Or could he do like retired Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and try professional golf?
