As Aaron Rodgers seeks a new contract with the Green Bay Packers, the quarterback is also looking for security in his role going forward.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network provided the latest on Wednesday while on the Pat McAfee Show:
“To me it’s not about the overall yearly averages,” Rapoport said about Rodgers’ demands. “… It’s about, from what I understand, security and him knowing that he is the Packers starter going forward, guaranteed contractually.”
On draft night, we found out that Rodgers wanted out of Green Bay. Rapoport previously reported the Packers have made a “significant long-term” contract offer for Rodgers.
He is currently under contract through 2023, but his future became uncertain as soon as the Packers traded up in 2020 to select QB Jordan Love.
“We want Aaron to be our quarterback. We’re pretty resolute with that,” Packers GM Brian Gutekunst told Peter King of NBC Sports. “We want to leave every avenue open for that to happen.”
