The Broncos also appeared to confirm the news Thursday morning on Twitter without stating anything specific.

The first and foremost question everyone is going to have with Hackett going to the Packers is what kind of impact this might have with Aaron Rodgers.

There has long been chatter about Rodgers potentially playing for the Broncos, and the team just hired his OC.

You never want to read too much into anything before things become official, but where there’s smoke, there’s probably a bit of fire.

I would love to know if Hackett being close with Rodgers had anything to do with the decision to hire him. If you think you can make a realistic run at the superstar quarterback by hiring his OC, why wouldn’t you?

It can’t be the only part of the equation, but it certainly could be a big part.

We’ll see what happens with the Packers QB, but at least the Broncos have their man.
