Green Bay Packers ‘Prefer To Move On’ From Aaron Rodgers, Per Report

SEATTLE - AUGUST 21: Superbowl Champion Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers walks on Qwest Field after winning a football game August 21, 2010 in Seattle, Washington.


Aaron Rodgers’ time with the Green Bay Packers could be coming to an end.

According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter on NFL Conference Championship Sunday, the Packers are not closing the door on a trade of Rodgers in part due to financial reasons.

Schefter said sources believe the Packers “prefer to move on from Rodgers, just as it once did with Brett Favre.”

Rodgers said during his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show that a trade from Green Bay “wouldn’t offend me, and it wouldn’t make me feel like a victim.”

“They drafted my replacement, and if I didn’t win two COVID MVPs, this conversation probably would’ve happened earlier,” Rodgers told McAfee. “But in a year where I’m not going to win MVP, it allows for all the different conjectures of if Jordan is ready and if it’s time to move on.”

If the Packers pick up Rodgers’ contract option this offseason, Rodgers’ cap number for 2023 would be more than $31 million.

There has been growing chatter that the New York Jets could pursue Rodgers — especially after hiring his former offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett to run their offense — so we will have to see how it all plays out. What we do know, however, is that we are in for another offseason full of Aaron Rodgers drama in Green Bay.
