Aaron Rodgers wanted Packers to take 49ers’ trade offer, per report

Apr 29, 2021 at 1:38 PM--

Aaron Rodgers reportedly does not want to return to the Green Bay Packers. According to Pro Football Talk, the quarterback wanted the Packers to take the San Francisco 49ers' offer when the Bay Area team came calling on Wednesday. The Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders are also on Rodgers' list of desired destinations.

The 49ers own the No. 3 overall pick after trading multiple first-rounders and a third-rounder to the Miami Dolphins on March 26. Rodgers is a California native, growing up in Chico. He wanted San Francisco to draft him No. 1 overall in 2005. The Niners chose Alex Smith instead. Rodgers fell to Green Bay at No. 24.

Today, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network broke the news that the 49ers inquired about Rodgers on Wednesday, which seemed curious considering the 2021 NFL Draft was just a day away. San Francisco is expected to select a quarterback with its top selection — Mac Jones of Alabama, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or Justin Fields of Ohio State.

The picture became clearer when ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback and three-time league MVP informed the Packers that he has no desire to return.

"To date, Aaron Rodgers has not budged," Schefter said. "And so we have standoff here that nobody knows exactly where it's going. And thus, the 49ers called the Green Bay Packers last night, and the Packers said, 'We're not trading him.'"

Kyle Shanahan confirms 49ers never made an offer for Matthew Stafford

By David Bonilla

After last season, the San Francisco 49ers looked at all of their quarterback options heading into free agency and the draft. At the time, the team owned the No. 12 overall pick, and the quarterback they were falling in love with, Trey Lance, probably wasn't going to fall that far. So the Niners did their due diligence on all possibilities, including a pre-draft call to the Green Bay Packers to see what was going on with Aaron Rodgers. Before that, reports often linked San Francisco to other quarterbacks like Matthew Stafford and Deshaun Watson. Head coach Kyle Shanahan already admitted to being interested in the former, saying that he was trying to get the 49ers involved in the talks for the former Detroit Lions quarterback. However, much to Shanahan's disappointment, the
