#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has indicated to people close to him that he does plan to play for GB this season, sources say. That is the expectation. Many factors at play, but with GM Brian Gutekunst saying he is “hopeful” for a positive outcome, there is a glimmer of optimism.

The new agreement, once finalized, would help set up Aaron Rodgers’ departure from Green Bay after this season, per sources. https://t.co/NojVojcHjy

So the Packers are setting it up so he leaves after one more year? Pretty strange, but actually makes a lot of sense (article explaining why tomorrow?).
The #Texans are now willing to listen — and have been for some time — to trade offers for star QB Deshaun Watson, multiple sources tell me and @RapSheet. But the price is high for a player of his caliber, and should be. It’d likely take at least three first-round picks and more.

I don’t think it’d be a good idea for a team to give up that much for him given the baggage (and that he’s not good enough to justify it), but we live in a world where the Bears traded up one spot for the right to draft Trubisky over Mahomes, so who knows what will happen. It only takes one team to feel desperate enough.
