Aaron Rodgers has long been linked to joining the Denver Broncos as his situation with the Packers deteriorates further and further.
The Packers quarterback would instantly make the Denver Broncos a playoff contender if not more if he were to join the team. After all, he is coming off an MVP season where he threw 48 touchdowns to only five interceptions.
Would the Denver Broncos make it back to the Super Bowl if Rodgers was at the helm? There’s a decent chance they could challenge for AFC supremacy alongside the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills.
Would they be above those teams? Skip Bayless certainly believes so.

Aaron Rodgers To The Broncos? Would Rodgers Make Denver A Super Bowl Contender?
As of right now, there doesn’t appear to be a definitive answer for what an Aaron Rodgers trade would look like. The Packers are unwilling to budge with their superstar quarterback, and the Denver Broncos (while they are monitoring the situation) won’t overpay.
Denver traded for former Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater this offseason, and they didn’t choose to add a quarterback through the draft despite Justin Fields and Mac Jones still being available.
Additionally, Aaron Rodgers hasn’t exactly shown that he’s 100% dead-set on leaving. He had the chance to opt out of the 2021 season and still save money, but he didn’t exercise that option, and he’s not taking any days off this offseason either.

With all that being said, would Aaron Rodgers make the Broncos a Super Bowl threat if he were to join somehow? Well, they’d definitely be closer to it than before, but it wouldn’t be a lock like Skip Bayless might think.
After all, the Broncos still have many holes on their team including offensive positions that the Packers have figured out. Additionally, the Chiefs and Bills are still exceptional teams, and both of them have practiced more together which is a huge advantage as Rodgers would need to adjust to an entirely different scenario.
However, if Rodgers could pick up the playbook fast, and the Broncos offense came together, they could very well be in the big game.
