The Miami Dolphins are dealing with a potential concussion for Tua Tagovailoa and the playoffs on the line, but Aaron Rodgers wants to play here.
After the game on Sunday, Aaron Rodgers talked with the media and let it slip that he would like to play for the Miami Dolphins.
Yes, a future Hall of Fame quarterback said he wanted to play for the Miami Dolphins, following a victory over them.
There are two problems with this, one, the NFL will likely find a way to fine and/or punish the Dolphins for tampering, that’s a joke. The 2nd is Aaron Rodgers has no shot to play for the Miami Dolphins.
If we were to play Devils Advocate here and say Miami made the call to Green Bay. The Packers would take a $96 million cap hit next year if they traded him. Miami doesn’t have the draft capital or players to package in a deal for Rodgers, and they don’t have the cap space to fit him in.
The final point to all of this is that the Dolphins have Tua Tagovailoa leading the team until he isn’t.
Rodgers isn’t happy in Green Bay and hasn’t been for a while which makes you wonder why he bothered to sign a contract extension earlier this year that will keep him with Green Bay threw 2026.
Rodgers saying he would want to play for the Dolphins is nothing more than him saying he would want to play in Miami. It is interesting however to hear him say that when he was talking about the team’s win over the Dolphins.
Rodgers showed a lot of respect for the Dolphins and Tua throughout the week leading up to the game in other interviews but the reality is reality and there is no shot of Rodgers joining the Dolphins, next year or the years after.
The truth is the interview gave some props to the Dolphins as an organization but that’s where the drama ends.
