Better Call U-Haul – Players are on the Move

Aaron Rodgers is making the rounds to multiple teams, seeking another Super Bowl win while contemplating his future with the Green Bay Packers. Will he land with the Jets? Bet on Las Vegas? What about Derek Carr and his prospects upon his release from the Raiders? Should he move to New Orleans or Tampa Bay? Is he underestimated as a QB, like Vince Ferragamo was in the early days? As a four-time Pro Bowler, does he have what it takes to be a Hall-of-Fame player?

Manny Machado is indicating he is considering opting out of his contract with the Padres, citing the rising price of eggs as a motivating factor. Is that a subtle (or maybe not so subtle) sign that he is looking for a bigger paycheck and a greater chance to be in the spotlight? Will that deter other teams from signing Machado, or are the Padres working on ways to keep him?

The Rams signed eight-time Pro Bowler Bobby Wagner to a big contract in 2022 and have now decided to part ways with him. Is the team resting on its laurels after the Super Bowl? Was it a mutual decision? Wagner was rated the #1 linebacker in analytics, so what were Stan Kroenke and the Rams thinking?

Is it fair to compare eras when discussing the GOAT in different sports? With LeBron James recently surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record for most points scored in NBA history, how can any GOAT conversation not take into account the career of Bill Russell? He won 11 world championships in 13 years as a player and coach, two national championships, and was a beloved sports announcer on top of it all. Are there athletes like him that transcend time, surpass the HoF, and have their names forever emblazoned in the pantheon of sports?
