The prevailing talk surrounding the Las Vegas Raiders has circled around the quarterback position. Derek Carr made his final appearance at Allegiant Stadium during this past weekend’s NFL Pro Bowl. With the future in doubt, we posed a question (relating to Aaron Rodgers, of course) to our readers, and once again, Raider Nation didn’t disappoint.
In case you weren’t aware, Rodgers took part in a pro-am this past weekend at Pebble Beach. While there, he didn’t exactly put out the fires of speculation. Of course, Raider Nation couldn’t help themselves as well. They dropped the famous “Raiders” chant and made light of the fact that Davante Adams is looking for a new quarterback.
You also had running back Josh Jacobs weigh in with his own thoughts on the matter. Essentially, No. 28 would be all-in on Rodgers coming to the Raiders. I mean, who wouldn’t, right? Well, you’d be surprised to learn that not everyone’s crazy about that idea. That’s especially true due to the belief that a deal surrounding Rodgers would include pivotal draft capital.
What does Raider Nation think of Aaron Rodgers coming to their Raiders?

We posed a question to Raider Nation on Twitter: who do they think will be QB1 in 2023? The other options besides Rodgers were Jarrett Stidham, Jimmy Garoppolo, or a rookie quarterback. Essentially, 50 percent of the voters believe Rodgers will be under center next season. Trailing No. 12 is Stidham with almost 30 percent of the vote. That’s not too shocking when you consider that Stidham is by far the cheapest option. On top of that, Dave Ziegler and the Raiders could draft a signal-caller to sit behind “Stiddy” or maybe even have a quarterback competition.
How do you feel about all of this, Raiders fans? Go all in on Rodgers or plan for the future? No one thought Ziegler could pull off the trade for Davante Adams last offseason. Will Ziegler deliver in back-to-back offseasons?
