With news surfacing that the relationship between Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers is fracturing, a new report notes that the Miami Dolphins might at least look into possibly acquiring the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

Adam H. Beasley, Armando Salguero and David Wilson of the Miami Herald indicated that since the Dolphins have already looked into a deal for Deshaun Watson, “it stands to reason” that they’d do the same with Rodgers.

“The Dolphins were one of a slew of teams that had inquired about Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson before he was accused by nearly two-dozen massage therapists of inappropriate behavior,” Beasley, Salguero and Wilson wrote.

“So it stands to reason they’ll at least make a call to see if the Packers are rethinking their stance.”

The Packers have indicated that they have no plans to trade Rodgers, while the Dolphins have previously stated that Tua Tagovailoa is their quarterback for the upcoming season.

Rodgers is coming off another huge year in which he threw for 4,299 yards and a league-high 48 touchdowns. However, he’ll turn 38 years old in December, which means that he’s getting closer to retirement with each passing game.

It seems likely that the Dolphins will at least consider the idea, though the price to acquire Rodgers is likely to be a steep one.

Trading for Rodgers would also either result in benching Tagovailoa or sending him elsewhere. Considering the Dolphins are trying to build a perennial power over the next decade, the prospect of obtaining Rodgers appears remote.

So if the apparent rift between Rodgers and the Packers is irreparable, he could be wearing a new uniform this September. However, fans shouldn’t expect him to be donning a Dolphins jersey.
