Could Aaron Rodgers Follow Nathaniel Hackett to Denver

Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers - Transfer odds. Earlier today, the Denver Broncos hired Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett to be their new head coach.

At the beginning of the day, most sportsbooks had the Denver Broncos at around 35/1 to win next year's Super Bowl.

After the signing of Hackett, the Broncos are as low as 18/1 to win Super Bowl LVII, as the smart money pours in on the Broncos.


Why does the signing of Hackett matter?

The answer: Aaron Rodgers.

The Broncos were already one of the leading contenders to land Aaron Rodgers this offseason (in fact, they had the second best odds after the Green Bay Packers, and this was before the signing of Hackett), and this would seem to bolster their chances immensely of landing Rodgers.

Rodgers and Hackett have had a good working relationship in Green Bay, so it stands to reason that the hiring of Hackett would potentially help to lure Rodgers to Denver.


There is a thought that Rodgers could move to Denver and bring Davante Adams with him.

The Broncos have a great deal of cap room heading into next year and they could likely make the numbers work.

If Rodgers and Adams do end up in Denver (still a big if), this would give the Broncos an offence that would include:

Aaron Rodgers
Davante Adams
Jerry Jeudy
Courtland Sutton
Tim Patrick
Noah Fant
Javonte Williams

That line-up would immediately give the Broncos one of the most potent offenses in the NFL.
