Rodgers offers pragmatic response to 49ers speculation that originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Tom Brady’s second retirement announcement on Wednesday ended any speculation that the NFL veteran will play for the 49ers next season.
But could another top quarterback end up in the bay? Not so fast.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding where Green Bay Packers signalman Aaron Rodgers will play next season, he quickly ruled out a possible destination at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Wednesday.
“I’m not going to San Francisco,” Rodgers told CBS’ Colt Knost before heading off.
While the Faithful 49ers may take issue with Rodgers’ use of “San Fran,” his abrupt closure of any rumors involving him and San Francisco is sure to evoke a variety of emotions among fans.
The 49ers enter the offseason with two young quarterbacks injured, though Trey Lance’s ankle should be cleared by OTAs and it looks like Brock Purdy’s torn UCL should be picked up by training camp.
Still, the 49ers will likely look to bolster their roster with a veteran presence at the position as well — although almost certainly not a quarterback of Rodgers’ notoriety or price tag.
