Well, nobody can say the San Francisco 49ers don’t shoot their shots.
According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the 49ers reached out to the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday — one day before the 2021 NFL draft and armed with the No. 3 overall pick — about trading for veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers, adding that no formal offer was made to acquire the reigning NFL MVP.
Pelissero also said that, per a source, there is a “zero percent chance” the Packers are interested in dealing away Rodgers at this time, confirming what the Packers have said about their current starting quarterback at every turn since their postseason run ended in January.

“Aaron is our guy,” Gutekunst said Monday during his pre-draft press conference. “He’s going to be our quarterback for the foreseeable future. We’re excited about the things we’re going to try to accomplish here over the next couple of years.”
