KFAN's Paul Allen reports 49ers offered massive deal for Aaron Rodgers

An earth-shaking report on the morning of the NFL Draft.

Minnesota Vikings radio announcer Paul Allen claimed on his Twin Cities radio show Thursday morning that the Green Bay Packers turned down a massive trade offer for quarterback Aaron Rodgers from the San Francisco 49ers. 

Here's how the report went down on FM 100.3: 

"I have steam next level Shanny (49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan) tried to make a run at A-Rog last night," said Allen. "I have steam the 49ers went sniffing around Aaron Rodgers last night and were summarily shut down."

Co-host Paul Charchian then speculated that any offer for Rodgers from the 49ers would have to include the No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft, which Allen confirmed and added: "Along with Jimmy Garoppolo and potentially four other picks, including two next year."

Allen said the centerpieces of the offer would be the third overall pick and Garoppolo, but the Packers turned it down.

Allen's report has ignited a firestorm on social media, though the longtime Minnesota broadcaster and Canterbury Park track announcer backed up his report.

"I ain't lying. I have ammo and I have a freaking bazooka that will blow your ass out fo the water," Allen said, reiterating the point: "Know I don't lie. Know I'm a man of God. And know that I have a bazooka in my back pocket with information and I'll blow your ass out of the water."

Ex-Vikings linebacker Ben Leber, who works at KFAN and on the Vikings Radio Network, confirmed Allen's words as being "factual."
