This Cowboys-Packers Trade for Aaron Rodgers if Dak Prescott Leaves in Free Agency Would Be Insane

Just a year removed from Aaron Rodgers' exultation after Mike McCarthy was fired as the head coach of the Green Bay Packers, the future Hall of Fame QB could end up playing for him once again after the Packers made some puzzling moves in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Seriously, he really could.

Green Bay traded up for Utah State quarterback Jordan Love, which has fired up trade rumors for Rodgers, as many are assuming Green Bay wants to start the Love era right away. If that's really the case, another global brand out of the NFC should be ready to spring into action.

If Rodgers is indeed on the block, the Dallas Cowboys should pounce if Dak Prescott prices himself out of what Jerry Jones is willing to pay him on a contract extension and they are left without a starting quarterback.

Rodgers could be had for a first- and a third-round pick. While his play on the field remains exemplary, trading away a ton of picks for a QB who is owed a massive amount of money and will turn 38 in December of 2021 could be a hard sell.

Green Bay can right the wrongs of the 2020 draft by getting Love some quality receivers with these picks, while the Cowboys could try to get their loaded roster to a Super Bowl in the final years of Rodgers career.

Jones is always going to be suckered in by star power, and McCarthy has still spoken highly of Rodgers despite the quarterback's continued bashing of his old coach. Rodgers ending up in Dallas after breaking their hearts for years shouldn't be discounted if Prescott leaves town. It really is crazy enough to work.
