The 2021 offseason’s primary storyline has been “Quarterback controversy.” This holds true more with the Green Bay Packers than any other team in the NFL. Quarterback controversy Green Bay Packers are definitely at the front and center of this issue.
It was announced earlier today that the Green Bay Packers on yet another quarterback, this time they brought on Jacob Dolegala for a one year contract valued at $780,000.
Dolegala played college football at Central Connecticut, and signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent in 2019. He has also been a member of the New England Patriots.
So with yet another quarterback being signed with the Green Bay Packers, what exactly does this mean for Aaron Rodgers? One would assume that a trade would be imminent. Rodgers has been a hold out since the beginning of this week in Green Bay as he seems determined to prove a point to the Packers organization.
Unfortunately for Rodgers, a trade just is not likely until this season is over as there is only one real prospect out there right now, the Denver Broncos. The question is, will he continue to sit out the remainder of the season, or will we see Rodgers take the field at some point. Only time will tell.
It seems like veteran quarterback DeShaun Watson of the Houston Texans is in a similar situation right now. While he’d like to be signed elsewhere, his current legal situation is preventing him doing so. The assumption is that the Miami Dolphins would be the most viable option for Watson, but at this point it seems unlikely.
