Aaron Rodgers could be traded to Raiders or Broncos by Sunday?

ESPN's Adam Schefter dropped the biggest bombshell of NFL Draft Thursday when he reported that quarterback and reigning NFL Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers is "so disgruntled with the Green Bay Packers that he has told some within the organization that he does not want to return to the team." 

This story comes only a few days after Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst told reporters that Rodgers is "going to be our quarterback for the foreseeable future," but NFL insider Jay Glazer and also Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk are suggesting Gutekunst was either in denial or hiding the truth about Rodgers' feelings: 

Florio added that Rodgers, who played his college ball with the California Golden Bears, prefers to head to the West Coast, and that the Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders could be potential destinations for the future Hall of Famer because Green Bay wants him out of the NFC: 

The Broncos acquired veteran Teddy Bridgewater from the Carolina Panthers on Wednesday, and Derek Carr is, for now, still QB1 for the Raiders. Obviously, Rodgers would be a significant upgrade over either of those options and, on paper, is worth mortgaging any future to pursue at least one Super Bowl title over the next five years.
