NFL rumors Aaron Rodgers could be traded by Green Bay Packers
The Detroit Lions are now afforded the opportunity to continue their rebuilding process.
After a successful 9-8 season, the front office will now focus on adding talent to the defensive side of the football and adding more depth to the offensive side.
Quarterback Jared Goff will be the starter under center, providing Dan Campbell and Brad Holmes the stability needed for the team to take another step forward in 2023.
“I think what Jared has done this year, he captained the ship of a top-3 offense, and I want to say he was top 10 statistically in most of the passing categories,” Holmes said at his season-ending media session. “Again, you know how we approach the draft, we’re never going to turn down a good football player. If there’s a good football player that we really love, we’re going to make sure every stone is [overturned]. But I do think Jared has proven to everybody that he is a starting quarterback for us.”
The same cannot be said for the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers, who could both move on from their starting signal callers this offseason.
