Tonight, former Broncos offensive lineman and current radio and television broadcaster Mark Schlereth reportedly told listeners on 104.3 The Fan in Colorado that Rodgers to Denver is almost a “done deal.”
If true, things have escalated quickly since Adam Schefter first reported the reigning MVP was so unhappy that he wanted out of Green Bay. Also, if the Broncos wind up landing Rodgers, it will mean that John Elway will have somehow lured both Peyton Manning and Rodgers to play for his franchise.
We’re not at that point yet, but with the rumors out there, the reactions have been pouring in on Twitter.
Buddy, there’s chatter out there. Just leave it at that. https://t.co/FdzxOZAcnP

Take all of these with a grain of salt, but Schlereth is connected inside that organization https://t.co/PADwJLbpc9

Make no mistake about it, if this happens, this is the type of trade that can shake up the league.
Green Bay’s loss might be Denver’s big gain, and it could potentially shift the balance of power in the AFC West and AFC in general.
