The Green Bay Packers want their franchise QB to stay home.
To make that a strong possibility, the Green Bay Packers have officially hired Tom Clements as the team’s new quarterbacks coach. He first joined the Packers organization as quarterbacks coach in 2006, working closely with Aaron Rodgers for six seasons in the early stages of his career.
Clements coming out of retirement to take this job is reportedly being “welcomed highly” by the superstar quarterback as he weighs his options this offseason.
Green Bay Packers insider Rob Demovsky confirmed that Clements isn’t coming out of retirement just to coach Jordan Love next season.
“Ryan, it comes down to this. A 68-year-old coach with no ties to Matt Lafleur or this coaching staff isn’t coming out of retirement to coach Jordan Love,” Demovsky said. “However, a source told me yesterday that this is not a guarantee that Rodgers is coming back, just a hope that it’s another thing that will convince him to do so.”
One of the main reasons Rodgers expressed discontent with the Packers organization last offseason was his perceived lack of input when it came to major front office decisions. This latest move proves things have chnaged drastically.
Clements coming back doesn’t bold well for the Denver Broncos who are reportedly after Rodgers this offseason.
