The reigning MVP is unhappy with the organization for a variety of reasons, and he has not been shy about making both his reasons and his unhappiness known. He has reportedly turned down a contract extension and has maintained that he does not yet know whether he’ll play for the Packers this season.
Just this week alone, it was reported that star wide receiver Davante Adams has also broken off extension talks with the team, leading to speculation that he could look to force his way elsewhere. He is on the final year of his deal, however, the Packers could also use the franchise tag on him if he makes it to the end of the deal without re-signing.
Amid this drama, Rodgers and Adams took things up a notch by making social media go nuts by posting a pair of matching Instagram posts with them alluding to “The Last Dance,” the documentary about the final season of the 1990s Chicago Bulls dynasty.
Rodgers and Adams are pretty clearly making it known that if they do play together in Green Bay in 2021, it just might be the for the final time. We should also remember that Rodgers referred to Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst as Jerry Krause, the late general manager of the Chicago Bulls who was portrayed in a negative light during “The Last Dance” documentary.
Poor Packers fans never envisioned their team would be this much in shambles after being so close to yet another Super Bowl appearance.
