Aaron Rodgers to retire?


Recommended Posts

Per NBCSports
 

SI.com's Bill Huber reports Las Vegas sportsbooks are "preparing for Aaron Rodgers to retire."

It adds to speculation Rodgers won't be back with the Packers when training camp opens next week. Multiple sportsbooks, including DraftKings, have removed Packers-based wagers on the belief Rodgers will retire, while PFT's Mike Florio suggests there’s a "very good reason" to think Rodgers won’t report to camp. The Packers broke off long-term talks with contract-year WR Davante Adams on Friday, the latest misstep for a front office that's been under fire all offseason. Rodgers, who rejected a two-year extension, may be willing to sit out 2021 as he looks to force his way out of Green Bay.

 

Looks like there is 0% chance he plays for the packers again

All the talk today is that he's coming back one more year.

This soap opera is a mid summer media wet dream. Either way the talking heads whining about not knowing Rodgers intentions are funny

Worked for Gronk. Took a year off. Came back and won a Ring.

Yeah, but Rodgers is under contract until the 2024 season. He can retire, but the Packers hold his rights until then.

Thats true, except that's not how it works in reality when a player takes a year off. After a whole season of Jordan Love they will be in a rock and hard place and a whole year out of football kinda proves the player is dead serious and irreconcilable. What do you hold him in spite with your new bride? Nope, they have to let him go or trade him for a 2nd round pick.

Ask Barry Sanders and Calvin Johnson. Then again, the Lions are one of the worst ran organizations in the NFL and the Packers are one of the best.

I think they would then own him until 2025. That year doesn’t just go away, I think. Not totally sure but I would think it would go into a holdout scenario where unless you report by a certain week you don’t count for this year. I think that’s more for guys on rookie deals where they don’t technically get that year counted. That’s why hold outs rarely go that far and even if like Bell you get to another team, it still can really hurt you.

Rodgers will not play another down of NFL Football, without the written consent of the Green Bay Packers.

 

There are literally 10s of ways this can go. But if Rodgers wants to still play QB, he is going to need GBs help. GB has him under Contract. For all intents and purposes. They own him.

Aaron Rodgers, and Devante Adams say hi. Green Bays reputation has taken a big hit lately. They've had Rodger his whole career. And won 1 SB. I wouldn't say they were ever the gold standard.

 

That's what happens when you have Stockholders. Profits over glory.

The Packers compete year in and year out. They have a total of four losing seasons since we entered the league. We have a total of seven winning seasons in that same timeframe. I wouldn't say they're the absolute gold standard either, but they're certainly one of the better ran teams in the league.

They have done a fair job of putting pieces around Arod. The RB position is always a ? They can never seem to quite figure out the WR position. They had a great D for years, lately, not so much. 

 

They did well with what they have. Stockholders. They never spend their Cap. They under pay anyone that let's them. And now they have lost the last great GB QB.

 

We'll see how they fare, now that they don't have a HOF QB.

I heard that the annual stockholders' meeting is this coming week.  That one should be interesting.

Rogers is a narcissistic prick who has made sure he is the center of attention.  The losers are the GB fans. Those fans who fill the stadium in 20 below weather deserve better.

    • Saints - 21 Panthers - 24 The Brees era is finally over. Imo he is a 20-pt advantage in the dome. I think they would have put up 41 on us in the same situation last year.    But Jameis gonna Jameis and I think we get a couple picks, short field, points off turnovers. Their defense is good but the TOs make the difference.    Darnold - Steady again - 24/34 295 yards, 2 TDs; No INTs  Jameis - Throwback Jameis - 39/55, 330 yards, 2 INTs, 2 TD, 5 sacks.    CMC - 140 total yards DJ/Robby - Combine for 200 yards in the air and 2 TDs.    Burns/Reddick - 3.5 sacks.    Horn - 1 INT - balls out to send a message to daddy’s former team.
    • When I see posts that we could have had this guy or why are we not picking up a better this guy at that position, I think... "We can't have everybody we want now". It takes time to build a complete team from scratch. For a new HC, OC and DC to get use to coaching in the NFL. It takes time to clear the dead cap space and bad contracts and build from the draft. It takes time for a young team to build an identity. Ours I believe will be a great defense and a quick hitting offense.  I believe they see 2021 as another step towards that. With Brady and the Bucs dominating and the Chiefs and few other teams at their peak, are we really going win a SB this year? IMO, this year is "hope we can at least win enough games" to come close to a wild card birth and maybe even sneak in. That would build team character and make the fan base start to really believe in the team. I think 2022 is a big step year with 2023 on being, we can compete for a SB run and hopefully win it.  It takes a philosophy and a culture, which Rhule brings. It takes solid depth to overcome injuries, not just having superstars. And it's impossible to have superstars at every position. Darnold may not be the franchise guy but he needs at least another year and a better O-line to really know. We tried to get other QBs and it didn't work. He was a high reward - low risk investment at the time and might turn out pretty good. I said might. Fans are impatient. I would rather build a perennial winner than have the 1 year good, then 2 years bad past (that's what it felt like). But I'm jealous watching the Chiefs and how loud their fans are, or other good teams. The Panthers need to build that consistency to win back the fans and the confidence that they can win most if not almost all games, especially at home. The Chiefs, Seattle, GB, Patriots, etc have home field advantage. We need that. After the music stopped on defense at 20 seconds, the stadium crowd was so low compared to the Georgia fans (2 weeks before) that were more than double the volume with 1/2 the stadium of fans. All this takes time.
