Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made a comment on Tuesday that could potentially hint at a big addition in the coming weeks/months.
Rodgers joined Pat McAfee for his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show and he was asked about wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr, who is currently a free agent.
The Green Bay quarterback pointed out that he’s actually good friends with OBJ. Rodgers then said he’d love to eventually play with the former LSU star.

“Obviously with a player like that, you’re always hoping that there’s a time where you can figure things out and play together.”

Rodgers has indicated that he doesn’t have too many years left in the NFL — he doesn’t envision himself playing to age 45 like Tom Brady.
So if Rodgers is going to play with OBJ, then this season might be the best chance for it to happen.
Beckham is currently rehabbing from the torn ACL he suffered in Super Bowl LVI. He’s expected to eventually sign with a team this season.
The Packers, with their inexperienced wide receiver group, could be a perfect destination.
OBJ has “flirted” with numerous teams in recent weeks, including the Los Angeles Rams and the Buffalo Bills. It’s hard to know which way Beckham is truly leaning, but it wouldn’t be a total shock if the Packers end up being his choice.
It’d be hard to turn down playing with a future first ballot Hall of Famer.
