Peyton Manning offers his take on Aaron Rodgers’ future with Packers
Peyton Manning wants to see the Denver Broncos do well. As one of the teams most closely linked to a possible Aaron Rodgers trade, one would think that would be something Manning wants to see, but it turns out that’s not the case.
Manning was asked about Rodgers’ future with the Green Bay Packers while attending MLB All-Star festivities in Denver this week. The former quarterback said he sees Rodgers as a Packer, and hopes the two sides can work it out. He also voiced confidence in Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater as potential starters for the Broncos.

Manning wants the Broncos to do well, but he’s also a football fan. For him, like many others, Rodgers playing for anyone other than the Packers would just be strange. Then again, the same could have been said about Manning leaving the Colts.
Some others associated with the Broncos would be much more eager to see the team land Rodgers. Manning seems content with however things play out, though it’s hard to imagine he’d be upset with Rodgers winding up in Denver.
