Aaron Rodgers in Denver would put AFC “on notice”
Denver Broncos Hall-of-Fame tight end and Undisputed host Shannon Sharpe believes that if Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was traded to Denver the team would be an instant contender.
Would Aaron Rodgers be able to take Denver back to the Super Bowl?

Sharpe noted that the arrival of Rodgers in the Mile High City would lead the Broncos back to the Super Bowl.
“Yes absolutely. Whoever you deem as top of the AFC would be put on notice if Aaron Rodgers donned the blue and orange,” Sharpe said. “There is no question in my mind.”
Rodgers did not opt out for the 2021 season, thus stating he wants to play. Opting out would have ended his season, but it would allow him to preserve more than $34 million.
If Rodgers holds out the entire season, the team could ask him to repay his prorated signing bonus this year and a $6.8 million roster bonus.
Sharpe pointed out the young talent that the Broncos have, and said adding Rodgers to the already talented roster would add another layer to help them contend.
“We saw what Peyton Manning did when he came to Denver,” Sharpe said. “They would challenge. I believe he would have a better chance going to the Super Bowl out of the AFC with that team because I trust [Vic] Fangio and that defense. No question about it.”
