NFL Draft weekend got very interesting for the Las Vegas Raiders when a report from Pro Football Talk indicated that Aaron Rodgers would welcome a trade to the team. They have largely stayed out of quarterback rumors this offseason but Rodgers is the reigning MVP and possibly the best in the business. No trade has happened yet but that doesn’t mean the Raiders aren’t considering their options.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the team has no issue with Derek Carr but believes they could take a look at Rodgers.

“[Aaron Rodgers] is reportedly intrigued by the Raiders as well, so they have to be on this list,” Fowler recently said on ESPN. “They’re happy with Derek Carr; nothing’s going on right now, and they very well could extend Derek Carr sometime soon. But the Raiders look into every single quarterback situation. … They

Just because the Packers don’t want to trade QB Aaron Rodgers now doesn’t mean their minds can’t be changed. And one anonymous NFL executive has floated a trade idea that fans might find very interesting.

Appearing on SportsCenter over the weekend, ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler revealed details of a talk he had with an executive who suggested a unique Packers-Seahawks trade. The executive floated the idea of the Packers swapping Rodgers to Seattle for Russell Wilson.

“Now here’s a complete wild card in Seattle…” Fowler said, via Bleacher Report. “One exec I talked to floated Seattle, just because John Schneider, the GM, has long-standing ties in Green Bay, and it’s clear he’s been unafraid to talk about Russell Wilson’s future with other teams as a potential trade. He talked to Cleveland a few years ago, has flirted with

While the Las Vegas Raiders are reportedly “happy” with Derek Carr as their starting quarterback, Aaron Rodgers is reportedly “intrigued” by the idea of playing for the franchise.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler said Sunday on SportsCenter that Las Vegas could be a destination for the disgruntled league MVP:

“[Aaron Rodgers] is reportedly intrigued by the Raiders as well, so they have to be on this list. They’re happy with Derek Carr; nothing’s going on right now, and they very well could extend Derek Carr sometime soon. But the Raiders look into every single quarterback situation. … They looked at past free agents or trade options. So, Jon Gruden is sort of always lurking. You can’t discount them.”

Fowler went on to say the Raiders also heavily scouted Trey Lance before the 2021 NFL draft. Lance went No. 3 overall to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday.

The Philadelphia Eagles are a team to watch heading into Thursday night’s NFL Draft.

Philadelphia, which is coming off a highly disappointing 2020 season – and an eventful offseason thus far – has the No. 12 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

The Eagles are rumored to be “up to something” with that pick, according to people around the NFL.

ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler shared what he’s hearing during a Sunday morning appearance on SportsCenter.

“I’m told that [Zach Ertz]’s been waiting, bracing for a change, a trade, a release, for the better part of the last two months. It has not happened yet, but Philly sits at 12 overall. It’s not an overly deep tight end class after Kyle Pitts. So if they move back, or down, or wherever they want to move in the three days of the draft, perhaps Zach
