The Green Bay Packers are done with Aaron Rodgers drama, and just want to move on. Let the Jordan Love era begin.
The Brett Favre cycle is repeating itself.
Soon, Aaron Rodgers will be a New York Jet, and perhaps a Minnesota Viking a year later if the prophecy is to be believed. It’s destined to be.
Even if that’s not the case, the Packers appear done with Rodgers indecisiveness. Rodgers has debated retirement for the last two offseasons now, and has yet to come to a consensus in 2023. Shortly after the season ended, Rodgers commentary made it look as though he was done, and wanted to retire a Packer.
Now? Not so much, as Rodgers took meetings with the Jets and is making up his mind any minute now (we hope).
Packers could make ultimate sacrifice to part with Aaron Rodgers
Per NFL insider Mike Garafolo, Green Bay wants to be done with the Aaron Rodgers drama. The longer this goes, the more it distracts the Packers front office from improving their roster around Jordan Love.
Garafolo went as far as to say they would take less compensation at this point in the process.
Any ‘fair deal’ is good enough for Green Bay. In similar fashion to Brett Favre over a decade ago, Rodgers has overstayed his welcome. It’s time to make up his mind. ESPN’s latest update on the meeting pins the decision squarely on Rodgers:
“The Jets’ increasing optimism follows their meeting this week with the Green Bay Packers quarterback. A contingent of Jets team officials, including owner Woody Johnson, general manager Joe Douglas, coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, flew to California on Tuesday to meet in person with Rodgers, sources previously told ESPN’s Dan Graziano.”
Jets owner Woody Johnson emerged from his conversation with Rodgers encouraged that the sides could work something out. The only thing we’re waiting on is…Rodgers himself. And the man is taking his time.
