    Aaron Rodgers, anyone?

    Aaron Rodgers says there are a lot of uncertain futures, “myself included”

    Posted by Mike Florio on January 24, 2021

    Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has made clear that he intends to play past his 40th birthday, and that he hopes to stay with the Packers that long.

    His comments following Sunday’s home loss in the NFC Championship are causing some to wonder whether Rodgers will be back with the Packers next year.

    Via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, Rodgers said there are a lot of uncertain futures, “myself included.”

    Said Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin regarding Rodgers’ post-game remarks: “Aaron Rodgers sure sounded like a guy saying goodbye.”

    Added Matt Schneidman of TheAthletic.com: “Aaron Rodgers fully sounded like someone who doesn’t know if he’ll be the QB here next season.”

    Rodgers’ future came into question after the Packers traded up in the first round of the 2020 draft to select quarterback Jordan Love. Rodgers seemed to be upset about it at the time, but by the time the season began he seemed to be a in a good place.

    If Rodgers is thinking about leaving, the Packers aren’t thinking about making him leave. Said coach Matt LaFleur, via Wilde regarding whether Rodgers will return: “The guy’s the MVP of this league. He’s the heart and soul of this football team. Hell yeah, he better be back here. He’s our leader.”

    Rodgers has three years left under his contract with the Packers. He could retire (he’d owe $23 million in unearned bonus money) or he could ask to be traded, if for some reason he wants to follow in the footsteps of quarterbacks like Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady.

    If the money is right...ABSOLUTELY




    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    The Coach Formerly Considered Less Than Cowher

    Aaron Rodgers.. 1-4 in NFC Championship games.

    and there is this crazy star from 2017

    Rodgers is 0-35 when trailing by 1 point entering the 4th quarter vs teams with a winning record. That doesn’t seem possible but its a crazy stat that you would never think true when talking about Rodgers.
    Tomlin’s coming back so what can you do?

    never would have thought that either.

    looks like Matt LaFleur is wasting the last years of this generational's talent just like McCarthy did.

    Another Mr. ‘Rodgers’ in Pittsburgh?

    Pfft! All these quarterbacks potentially moving teams! Matt Stafford, Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz and Sam Darnold.

    The Steelers have only been on the fringes of a few of those discussions. At best.

    But Aaron Rodgers? Sure. Let’s just cannonball off the high dive instead of wading into the shallow end of the pool.

    The likely NFL MVP was eliminated from the playoffs Sunday as his Green Bay Packers lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game 31-26.

    Via ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky, Rodgers sounded like a quarterback who wasn’t sure he’d be back with the Packers next year.

    Green Bay Packers beat writer Matt Schneidman of The Athletic echoed that sentiment.

    Rodgers is under contract through 2023. But Green Bay drafted quarterback Jordan Love in the first round last spring. And Rodgers’ cap number next year is over $39.8 million. It’s at $28.3 million in 2023.

    If Rodgers moves, ProFootballTalk lists Pittsburgh as one of the favorites to acquire him.

    Of course, that would require the release or trade of Ben Roethlisberger for that to happen. And the Steelers have been listed as long shots for all of those other quarterbacks if they get moved.

    Perhaps ProFootballTalk is assuming the Steelers won’t move on from Roethlisberger for one of those candidates, but they may do it for Rodgers.

    I would.

    Seeing rumors of Rodgers and Stafford moving.. and Rivers moving to the Colts for a year before retiring kinda puts
    things in perspective regarding franchise QB’s.

    Nothing last forever and if we moved on from Ben it wouldn’t be disrespectful at all. Its the nature of the biz.
    Tomlin’s coming back so what can you do?

    I think it's not going to happen because of the cap.

    I want a real rebuild, not a band aid.
