REPORT: Green Bay Packers Almost Traded Away Aaron Rodgers For Randy Moss In 2007

The Green Bay Packers find themselves with a good chance of ending up in the Super Bowl each and every year, and the reason for that is one man – Aaron Rodgers.

It now appears the league could look very different right now, all because of one trade that didn’t happen back in 2007.

According to, in 2007, the Oakland Raiders were close to trading Randy Moss to the Green Bay Packers in a package that would have included Aaron Rodgers. Both Pro Football Talk and Michael Felger of the Boston Herald reported the Packers were ready to trade then-backup quarterback Rodgers for Moss.

The Raiders instead traded Moss to the New England Patriots for a fourth round pick that they used on John Bowie.

Moss agreed to restructure his deal with the Patriots and they went on to go 18-1.

Rodgers replaced Brett Favre as Packers’ quarterback after the 2007 season.

The Raiders continued to search for a franchise quarterback until drafting Derek Carr in 2014.
