It could happen tonight. The Bears might not have to worry about Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay before the first round of the NFL Draft finishes on Thursday, at least according to Mark Schlereth and Eric Goodman, two Denver radio personalities.
“It is my understanding the Broncos are having conversations with the Green Bay Packers about Aaron Rodgers … do not be surprised if a deal is executed tonight,” Goodman’s radio partner Andrew Mason tweeted on Thursday.
Although Goodman is quoted as saying “do not be surprised,” a deal of that magnitude, coming together so quickly would be shocking. It would be earth-shattering, astonishing and stupefying. But most of all it would probably fill Bears fans with nothing short of pure, unadulterated joy.
On the other hand Mike Klis threw some cold water on the other two reports:
The Broncos just traded for Teddy Bridgewater one day earlier, making this report all the more surprising. But when a player of Rodgers’ caliber comes on the market, all previous plans go out the window.
