The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Aaron Rodgers: What Next for NFL’s ‘Complicated Fella’

Aaron Rodgers: What Next for NFL’s ‘Complicated Fella’

Aaron Rodgers, what's next?
Publish Date: 06/22/2021
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

It’s pretty clear at this stage that the relationship between Green Bay Packers and their star performer, Aaron Rodgers, is in a more than rocky position. Where the quarterback ends up now is very much up for debate but if he does leave the Lambeau Field franchise then they’ll struggle in a big way this coming season.

 

37-year-old Rodgers has represented Green Bay since his NFL debut back in 2005 and has served them well, winning them the Super Bowl a decade ago and finishing NFL MVP on three occasions. However things between Rodgers and the team’s front office have hit an all-time low, and it’s hard to see where things go from here on in.

 

When it comes to where Rodgers may go there are many potential options on the table. You should take advantage of the great insights, analysis and the sports betting predictions from sidelines.io, before you place a bet on where he may end up. A popular bet right now might be the health (+140) on him leaving Green Bay.

 

Leading the way in terms of picking up Rodgers are the Broncos (+350), followed by the Raiders, Saints and Dolphins at lengthier odds of (+1220), but how did we get here?

 

The Aaron Rodgers-Packers saga has been going on for a while now and recent comments from president Mark Murphy have done nothing to dampen the blaze, quite the contrary in fact.

 

Rodgers has indeed, according to reports, demanded a trade, and that demand was ignored which led to the QB failing to attend a mini-camp earlier this month. This in turn led to Murphy stating;

 

“I’m often reminded though… of Ted Thompson, as most of you know, just a great general manager, passed away (earlier this year),” Murphy continued

 

“(Thompson) often talked about Aaron, that he’s a… and it wasn’t just Aaron, a lot of different players. He would say ‘He’s a complicated fella.’ So, I’ll just say that.”

 

This kind of retort is at best, unnecessary, and at worst downright inflammatory and wholly unwarranted. To bring in beloved coach Thompson, who coached Rodgers for 12 years before his passing, may prove to be the final straw for Rodgers, who has no shortage of interest in his services.

 

Almost as if to confirm Murphy himself was in the wrong, he went on to backtrack from his stance in further conversations on the team’s official website, stating that “We are working to resolve the situation and realize that the less both sides say publicly, the better.”

 

Some speculation is rooted in the entire situation being something of a manufactured one, in so much as the contract that Rodgers has been a little outdated. Rodgers has three year remaining on a deal, worth around $22m a year, that has since been dwarfed by the likes of Patrick Mahomes ($45m a year) and Dak Prescott ($40m a year), and that the apparent bad blood between the team’s money men and their star player is in fact the root of all the evils at play.

 

Aaron Rodgers is tied up in his current deal and Green Bay are in no rush to alter the terms, which has brought us to where we are now. 

Whether Rodger is still in place at Green Bay when they face the Saints in their NFL opener on September 12th is very much up in the air.
