The Denver Broncos are hiring Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as the team’s next coach. Will he entice quarterback Aaron Rodgers to join him?

Betting on the 2023 Super Bowl isn’t at the forefront of bettors’ minds, but they’re trying to beat the market by hitting Denver early as rumors swirl around the future of Rodgers.

DraftKings opened Super Bowl odds for next season last week with the Broncos at +3500. After news of Hackett’s hiring spread on Thursday morning, the Broncos are down to +1800 odds.

Rodgers to the Broncos was a popular rumor last offseason when it was unsure he’d return to Green Bay. Now that it’s less of a secret he could potentially move on, Denver will be another popular option.

The Broncos famously brought in Peyton Manning after his historic run with the Colts. Will they do it with Rodgers?

Denver needs a quarterback after a season with Teddy Bridgewater and the failed Drew Lock experiment. The Broncos have enticing targets at receiver in Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. The defense allowed 18.9 points per game in 2021, the third-best number in the NFL behind the Bills and Patriots.

However, if Rodgers is looking to win, there might not be a tougher available situation than Denver. The Broncos must compete with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs and Justin Herbert and the Chargers four times in a season. The Raiders are no slouch in the AFC West, either.

Of course, Rodgers is an instant season-changer on any team.

Rodgers is not a free agent, so he must be traded to a new team in 2022 if he were to leave. However, Rodgers can essentially pick his destination because no team is acquiring him without knowing he wants to be there.
