If he does follow through with retiring, he would owe the Packers $11.5 million this year and another $11.5 million in 2022 if he remained retired as part of his signing bonus.
“Reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers is so disgruntled with the Green Bay Packers that he has told some within the organization that he does not want to return to the team,” Schefter reported.
Not to mention, Green Bay also paid Rodgers $6.8 million roster bonus earlier this year, which could be in jeopardy if he were to retire.
After the draft last night, Gutekunst reiterated that they have no plans to trade Rodgers.
“He’s our quarterback. He’s our leader. We’ve been working through this for a little while now. I just think it might take some time. But he’s the guy that makes this thing go,” Gutekunst said, per Tom Pelissero.
Gutekunst added that he thinks Rodgers will play for the team again.
“I do think he’ll play for us again,” Gutekunst said.
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.
