While it’s hard who to believe when it comes to the Green Bay Packers and QB Aaron Rodgers. Apparently, no one within Rodgers’ circle is talking.
However, that’s not stopping the people within the building from ‘sourcing’ material to those who know how to use it.
As the ‘Will They, Won’t They’ trade saga continues, it’s becoming less and less the choice of Rodgers, and more the motivation for the front office.
After all the antics and negative attention, it seems that even with Rodgers’ 4-day darkness retreat was simply the final nail in a coffin that’s been half in the grave, half out.
A new report from Go Long hosts Tyler Dunn and Bob McGinn indicates the Packers have “all but moved on from the longtime starter.” with the direction now headed towards the Jordan Love era.
McGinn, a long-time Packers beat writer reports that it’s not a matter of if but a matter of when.
“They are done with Rodgers. He’s not coming back. I mean, they’re disgusted with him, and they’re done with him. And they’re moving on…”
At the moment, the two most obvious and clear frontrunners for Rodgers is the New York Jets and Las Vegas Raiders.
It’s expected that the Green Bay Packers will get a bevy of picks. Something in the same ballpark as Matthew Stafford or Russel Wilson.
Even with the saga in a much more public place, the Packers organization is more than ready to move on to Jordan Love.
With free agency approaching on March 15th, the trade would incur a $40.3 million dead hit to the Packers cap for 2023.
As Rodgers continues to deflect and derail the inevitability of both sides moving on. When and where are to be determined. But at this point, change is imminent.
