Calm down, Packers fans. I know your hearts jumped out of your chest reading that title.
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported Thursday that if Aaron Rodgers still wants out of Green Bay after the upcoming season, the Packers have verbally agreed that they will trade him to another team.
Last week, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers got on the same page when both sides agreed to the terms and language on Rodgers’ reworked deal, creating a path for the reigning MVP to sign ahead of the 2021 season. As part of the agreement, the Packers voided the 2023 year of Rodgers’ contract and the deal is set to void on the seventh day prior to the 2023 league year, making him impossible to franchise tag after 2022.
Rodgers is owed base salaries of $15.05 million and $25 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2020, Rodgers appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and completed 70.7 percent of his passes for 4,299 yards, 48 touchdowns, and five interceptions. He also rushed for 149 yards and three touchdowns.
He was rewarded by being named the league MVP.
