Aaron Rodgers wants out of Green Bay after criticizing the Packers’ culture, the only NFL team he has ever played for. A couple of teams could interested in trading for him as Green Bay already drafted Rodgers’ replacement with Jordan Love. Now Rodgers is in a difficult situation. He wants to play, but not for Green Bay.
Rodgers has also expressed an interest in hosting Jeopardy full-time. His schedule might open up if he doesn’t find himself on any active roster next season.
While talking to The Bill Simmons podcast, NFL insider Peter Schrager stated that he has doubt that Green Bay will trade their QB. They might prefer to see Aaron Rodgers retire than let him leave like he wants to.
“I don’t think Green Bay wants to trade him.”
“I think they’d rather see him retire or just not play then suit up for the Denver Broncos and take them to the Super Bowl.”
“I don’t think they’re going to do anything based on what Aaron Rodgers wants. After this whole thing, I don’t think the Packers are going to say: ‘Well, where would Aaron be happy?’ That’s not their concern at the moment.”
We will have to see what happens in this situation. Aaron Rodgers can still lead a team, but he doesn’t want that team to be in Green Bay anymore. This story could also include many levels that haven’t come to the surface just yet.
Aaron Rodgers’ current status is unknown. He has not reported for any team training, and he’s not currently playing for a team. He is still under Green Bay contract. Only time will tell if a trade can be arranged.
