Aaron Rodgers Proves That He Hates Women By Signing A Massive Contract On International Women's Day; Gets Overshadowed By Denver Making A Deal For Russell Wilson
The NFLs most hated football player strikes again, but gets buried by Denvers blockbuster trade.
While I may be a Minnesota Vikings fan, I did defend Aaron Rodgers through his whole vaccine debacle because it just felt like people were kicking a guy while he was down. But now I can’t keep defending him because he truly is a douche.
The biggest example, before today, that proved Rodgers was a major douche was when he went on the Pat McAfee show and announced that he finished a twelve day cleanse, but had no decision on his future. That’s just a hardo, asshole move to throw in the whole cleanse thing because really no one cares.
Well today, Rodgers topped that ridiculously stupid cleanse comment by announcing that he’s returning to the Packers in 2022, ON INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY OF ALL DAYS. God damn it Aaron, let the women have their day. Send Rodgers off to prison IMMEDIATELY!
Pat McAfee first reported on Rodgers return on the Pat Mcafee Show today and added that there was no deal in place, but it was “cap friendly”.
Just a few hours later, it was reported that the contract Rodgers was set to sign was a 4 year, 200 million dollar deal with 153 million dollars guaranteed. WOW.
But apparently, that mega deal that Rodgers supposedly was set to sign was not true. The Cal alum tweeted “YES I will be playing with the @packers next year, however, reports about me signing a contract are inaccurate,”.
Rodgers held the spotlight for a couple of hours before the Denver Broncos made a splash when they went all in for an elite quarterback.
John Elway and the Denver Broncos sent quarterback Drew Lock, defensive end Shelby Harris, tight end Noah Fant, two first round picks, one of which is the ninth overall pick in the draft, two second round selections, and a fifth rounder in exchange for quarterback Russell Wilson and a fourth round pick. This trade is one of the biggest in league history based on how much Denver gave up.
This trade feels like a win win for both organizations. I’ll explain.
Denver gets the big time quarterback that they’ve longed for since Peyton Manning while also keeping their good, young back and all pieces of their elite wide receiving core. If you think Wilson had it good in Seattle with DK and Lockett, it gets better in the Mile High City with Cortland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, KJ Hamler, and Albert Okwuegbunam.
Wilson now gets to play behind an offensive line that won’t get him killed. Seattles dismal pass protecters allowed 46 total sacks, which was eighth in the NFL. Denver allowed 40 total sacks this past season, but their returning the majority of their offensive linemen which is a plus.
It may look like Seattle “lost” this trade because they lose a franchise icon and solid starting quarterback in Russell Wilson, but they received an amazing haul in exchange.
The Seahawks bring in defensive end Shelby Harris who made 49 tackles, 6 sacks, and 2 pass deflections last season. He’ll be a good addition alongside Al Woods and Poona Ford.
Seattle also landed Drew Lock who is a, well, not great option at quarterback. He’s inconsistent and makes terrible decisions, but it may be what they have to ride with. The final player in the trade is tight end Noah Fant who is an awesome, big bodied target to go with Gerald Everett. Fant reeled in 68 balls in 2021 going for 670 yards and 4 touchdowns.
What Pete Carrols squad also gets is two first round picks, two second round picks, and a fifth rounder. This gets them back the picks that they lost in the Jamal Adams trade and then some. They currently hold the ninth overall pick and a smart move would be to draft the next face of their franchise.
A good fit in the offense would be either Matt Corral or Malik Willis. They’re both swift athletes that will make defenses pay if you let them run and they have big arms to hit Lockett and Metcalf over the top.
Another big aspect of this trade is Wilsons age. He’s 33 years old and with his play style, I’m shocked he’s played this long. He’s been behind below average offensive lines his whole career and is a natural runner. Denver is definitely thinking “win now”, but at what cost?
One more wrinkle thrown into this equation is that Seattle jus released the other face of their franchise, linebacker Bobby Wagner. Wagners an 8 time All Pro and 2 time league tackle leader. In his time in Seattle, he’s made 1,383 tackles, 23.5 sacks, and 60 pass breakups.
It truly is a new era for Pete Carrol and the Seattle Seahawks. And fuck Aaron Rodgers.
