The NFC Divisional Round ended with the top-seeded Packers shocked as the 49ers left Lambeau Field victorious. A few hours later, the Packers’ 13-4 regular-season was a distant memory. Attention immediately turned to the future of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The 38-year-old Rodgers is likely weeks away from winning his fourth MVP trophy after producing a 68.9 percent completion rate, 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions in 16 games. Without question, Rodgers is still an elite playmaker despite his advancing age. If he decides to play in 2022, he’s more than hinted towards ending his career somewhere other than Green Bay after the franchise has repeatedly failed to participate in the arm’s race of compiling offensive talent.

The league’s cap space is expected to rise significantly after bouncing back from the Covid-related drop in 2021. If Rodgers were to depart Green Bay, there’s a clear list of five teams that have the mixture of cap space, ability to compete right away, and trade assets to get the deal done. The Packers’ legend would surely have input on his next destination, and would prioritize a deep playmaking corps to excel with.
