It’s beginning to look more and more as if Aaron Rodgers will remain with the Green Bay Packers, but until it happens, it hasn’t.
Earlier this week, Green Bay Packers GM Brian Gutekunst shocked everybody when he revealed not a single NFL GM has reached out to him about an Aaron Rodgers trade.
“Not at all,” Gutekunst told reporters. “Not at all. Not a single person.”
That’s a tough sell there by the Packers, because there has long been reported interest from multiple teams in acquiring Rodgers, and it’s unrealistic to believe all of it simply evaporated in 2022
“Gutekunst’s claim counters a recent report from ESPN NFL insider Dianna Russini, who said ‘multiple’ teams have trade offers in place for Rodgers,” writes Adam London of NESN.com. “This is much easier to believe, as it would be business malpractice for teams to not do their due diligence on Rodgers while his status remains up in the air.”
Here’s how social media reacted:
Last week, it wass reported that the Packers and the agents for QB Aaron Rodgers are working on a contract beyond the scenes. According to Ian Rapoport, this would be a “short-term” deal that would likely make Rodgers the highest-paid player in the NFL.
It remains to be seen what Rodgers will decide to do.
In 2021, Rodgers appeared in 16 games for the Packers and completed 68.9 percent of his passes for 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns and four interceptions.
