Patrick Mahomes isn’t afraid of facing Aaron Rodgers twice a year.
Just a few weeks ago, NFL Network’s Rich Eisen said he had heard Rodgers wanted to get traded to the Denver Broncos because he would love to “personally beat Mahomes” in the AFC West division.
"Is it personal or is it business? It's both."

“I heard he’d happily go to Denver because they’ve got the weapons,” Eisen said. “He doesn’t care that it’s in Mahomes’ division, he would actually love to personally beat Mahomes, he would love to send Mahomes to the Wildcard every single year. This is what I’ve been told.”
On Monday, Mahomes was asked how he would feel if Rodgers took his talents to the AFC West. The Chiefs’ superstar quarterback says it was would be awesome to have Rodgers in his division and while it would make things a bit tougher for the Chiefs the team is up for the challenge.

Obviously it’d be awesome, to have that challenge two times every single year, it would be agreat opportunity, he’s a heck of a football player, he’s been doing it for a long time that I’ve watched played and learned a lot from.
If he came to the AFC West it would make it a little tougher for us but we’re up for the challenge
As of now it appears that Rodgers is staying put in Green Bay considering Packers’ GM Brian Gutenkunst refuses to trade him.
