The NFL’s reigning MVP really threw the league for a loop today. There has never been a reigning MVP traded, but according to multiple reports, Rodgers wants out of Green Bay and is extremely disgruntled with the Packers. Despite overtures by the team’s brass to extend him, and trips from Rodgers’ agent to Green Bay, his stance has not changed.

So, on Wednesday, the 49ers reached out to the Packers and reportedly inquired about acquiring Rodgers. They were promptly rebuffed.

But according to reports, that didn’t sit well with Rodgers, who is living in California. Per ProFootballTalk, Rodgers wanted the Packers to accept the 49ers’ offer and has three preferred teams he’d like to be traded to: the 49ers, Raiders and Broncos.

And according to Trey Wingo, Rodgers not only wanted the trade to happen, but was assured by the Packers’ front office that he would be traded, and was “convinced” that he was going to the 49ers on Wednesday night.
