The Green Bay Packers moved up in the 2020 NFL Draft on Thursday night to select Utah State quarterback Jordan Love much to the surprise of...well, everyone. Love was a solid QB at Utah State, specifically having a stellar sophomore season in which he threw for 3,567 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions. He was less impressive in year 3 and thus was quite the polarizing prospect.
Twitter was ablaze with speculation and then confirmed reports of Aaron Rodgers not being thrilled with the Packers deciding to invest in their future at the QB position, rather than add a young skill player. On a recent episode of PTI, Michael Wilbon went as far as to say he would not be shocked to see Rodgers in a different uniform in the future.
"Aaron Rodgers is gonna be in a Bears uniform sometime in the next couple of years."
Tony Kornheiser agreed with that sentiment and went on to say that Rodgers should push for a trade. Wilbon's big statement could have been sounding the alarm a little early but if Rodgers is indeed "pissed off" as Peter King has said, anything is possible down the line.

The Bears would-much like any team in the NFL-obviously be pumped to get Rodgers on their roster, even with Nick Foles and Mitch Trubisky on the depth chart and more importantly, the cap sheet. Who knows how much draft capital and what players the Bears would have to give up to get a hypothetical Rodgers deal done but with things looking even slightly rocky in Green Bay, the Rodgers situation is going to be very much worth following moving forward.
