Aaron Rodgers had great quote about Packers possibly drafting quarterback
Long before the Green Bay Packers selected Jordan Love with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Aaron Rodgers knew there was a possibility his team would draft a quarterback. And he had a great comment about it.
In March, Rodgers spoke with “Wilde & Tausch” and was asked about the possibility of the Packers taking a quarterback.
Aaron Rodgers on @WildeAndTausch in March on possibility of Packers drafting a QB: "They're not going to be able to beat me out anytime soon."

His answer was on the money.
A quarterback isn’t taking Rodgers’ spot any time soon. And that’s what makes the pick so curious. Rodgers is 36 and led the Packers to a 13-3 season last year. Though he was not at his best, he still passed for 4,002 yards, 26 touchdowns and four interceptions. The chances of a drafted quarterback being better than him next season or the following season seems low.
The Packers may have invited a Jimmy Garoppolo-Tom Brady situation, and you saw how that worked out — New England got to a point where they could not afford to keep both quarterbacks, so they chose to trade Jimmy G. Maybe Green Bay will be ready to trade Rodgers after the upcoming season.
