Fans of the Denver Broncos have not given up on the idea of the team trading for Aaron Rodgers.
During Tuesday’s The Match where Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau defeated Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady, the Green Bay Packers quarterback didn’t have much to say in regards to staying in Green Bay, but it was far from a vote of confidence.
General manager George Paton should be doing whatever he can to facilitate a deal between the two sides. Adding the reigning league MVP could make the Broncos an instant contender for the Super Bowl.
But the AFC is still loaded with talented teams and though the Broncos would be getting one of the best quarterbacks in the league, there are still several teams that they would have to find a way to topple if they were going to get to the biggest game of the year.
Looking at all other 15 AFC teams, each of these squads would still provide a big roadblock to Denver’s championship hopes.
It definitely feels weird to put the Browns on any good list, but this team is no joke and it is actually a trendy pick to win the AFC this year.
Baker Mayfield will be entering year four in the league and he is starting to get things figured out. The Browns have surrounded him with great receiving options in Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry along with one of the most potent rushing attacks in the league.
On defense, Myles Garrett and the recently acquired Jadeveon Clowney should be a combination that gives teams fits as well.
The Browns ended their lengthy playoff drought a year ago and then gave the Kansas City Chiefs all they wanted in the divisional round.
That experience will make the Browns a hungrier team this season, one that is going to be a tough out for anyone.
