If Aaron Rodgers wants out, the Packers will oblige with his request.
The Packers will work with Aaron Rodgers on a trade if he doesn’t want to be in Green Bay in 2023, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. In order to get a trade done, however, Rodgers would need to rework his contract for salary-cap purposes.
“If Rodgers comes to the team with a request to play his 19th season elsewhere, sources say the Packers are open to working with the four-time AP NFL MVP on a trade,” Pelissero and Rapoport wrote Sunday.
The waiting game with Rodgers will continue as Rodgers decides his future. But the ball is in the quarterback’s court: “The first move belongs to Rodgers,” per Pelissero and Rapoport.
