Nathaniel Hackett Is Linked To Rodgers And Adams
Packers Offensive Coordinator Nathaniel Hackett is one of the finalists for Denver’s head coach. Hackett gave an eight-hour interview with the Broncos on Monday, January 24.
According to Schultz, Hackett will most likely become the Broncos’ next head coach.
Hackett has been the Packers attack coordinator for the past three years. If Rodgers and Adams are interested in leaving Green Bay, Hackett would seem to boost the Broncos’ chances of signing two superstars.
Schultz noted that Hackett had a “good relationship” with both Rodgers and Adams.
The Broncos are in a perfect position to get both Rodgers and Adams
Adams is set to be a freelance agent this holiday season and he will command a major deal on the open market. Spotrac Adams’s estimated market value is $25.8 million per year.
It will be difficult for the Packers to re-sign Adams, even if he decides to go back. They currently have – $45.8 million in limited space, according to Spotrac. The front office will have to restructure some contracts or trade some valuable players to give Adams a chance to re-sign.
In contrast, the existing Broncos $44.8 million in limited available space. Denver will be fully able to sign Adams as a free agent.
In addition, the Broncos have the assets to make the Packers a strong offer for Rodgers. They have five of the top 100 picks in the 2022 NFL draftincluding the ninth overall pick.
However, the Broncos also need to fit Rodgers’ big contract under the cap. For 2022, Rodgers brings hit the limit of $46.4 million for the Packers, but in a potential transaction the team buying Rodgers would receive a lower cap. Part of Rodgers’ limited hit was a $16.3 million signing bonus, for which the Packers were still responsible.
The Broncos will likely need to open up about $10 million more in space, which shouldn’t be difficult. They can free up about 10.6 million dollars in cap space by contract restructuring of Garett Bolles.
If not, they can open up more space by including the player in a potential commercial offer. Schultz mentioned including wide receiver Jerry Jeudy in a potential deal with the Packers.
There’s no doubt many teams will be interested in Rodgers and Adams, but Denver is one of the few teams with the combination of assets and limited space to realistically get this pairing.
