NFL QB News: Wilson Traded To Denver, Rodgers Staying In Green Bay

Jonathan Grant | March 9th, 2022

Quarterbacks were all the rage, out of nowhere, on Tuesday as the NFL stole headlines. Just when you thought we had our biggest headline of the day, another come rolling in to top it. That’s where we start: with Russell Wilson leaving Seattle to head to Denver. The Broncos have agreed on a trade with the Seahawks that would send Seattle a slew of players.

The Ringer

In addition to QB Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, and defensive lineman Shelby Harris, they will also be receiving two first-round draft picks, two second-rounders, and a fifth-round selection for Wilson and a fourth-round pick. This gives the Broncos a QB to build around, they’re first since Peyton Manning left, and it also gives Seattle plenty to work with going forward. Even if they have to replace a quarterback that brought them a Super Bowl not so long ago. It had been thought that Denver was a possibility for Aaron Rodgers to land in, but prior to the news that Wilson had been traded to the Broncos, we learned that the two-time reigning MVP would be staying put in Green Bay. The Packers will have the opportunity to potentially have a five-time MVP under center for them in 2022 as Rodgers has decided to forgo all the gnashing of teeth that comes with speculation and make a decisive statement on his intentions. Rodgers hasn’t always gotten his way at Lambeau, but it appears he’s plenty happy to proceed now, and fans of the Packers will be thankful he’s going to remain in their corner.
