Even Aaron Rodgers wants the inside info on his trade reports.

The disgruntled Packers quarterback texted Mark Schlereth after the Fox Sports analyst reported Thursday night that the Broncos were near a trade to acquire Rodgers.

Schlereth said on the “Pat McAfee Show” that Rodgers texted him after he reported the news.

“Who’s your source? What you hearing?” Rodgers messaged.

Schlereth, who was a star lineman in Denver in the 90s, said he got the information from a “very reliable source outside of Denver, someone who has never steered me wrong. Told me this thing is heating up and close to a done deal.”

Rodgers and the Packers aren’t done yet, however. The 37-year-old remains the quarterback in Green Bay as the franchise attempts to smooth things over. Rodgers’ frustration seemingly lingers from the decision to draft his heir apparent, Jordan Love, in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Broncos opted not to select a quarterback in this week’s draft, despite an apparent need for one. They are currently headed for an uninspiring competition between Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater.

Rodgers has not spoken publicly about the situation, though did pass word to NBC’s Mike Tirico while at the Kentucky Derby that he was “disappointed” that the “rift” has gone public.

“He didn’t pour cold water on it,” Schlereth said. “He just said, ‘I’ll let you know soon as I know.’”
