Aaron Rodgers Reveals He Fully Expected to Be Done in Green Bay
By Larry Rupp
One storyline dominated the NFL offseason and that was the continuing saga between quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers front office. The reigning NFL MVP recently revealed that he thought 2020 would be his last season with the team when he was in training camp last year.
This shouldn't come as much of a surprise given it was shortly after the Packers decided to trade up in the first round of the NFL Draft to select QB Jordan Love. That seemed to be the start of Rodgers' problems with the front office and he figured his time was coming to an end sooner rather than later.
However, Love had no way of preparing for the NFL due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Rodgers went out and put together a stellar season. The 37-year-old QB guided the Packers to a 13-3 record by completing a league-high 70.7% of his pass attempts for 4,299 yards and 48 touchdowns.
Rodgers' level of play allows him to be more outspoken than most quarterbacks are when issues arise on the team. He has spent this past offseason making sure the front office knows he is not happy and even ended up skipping workouts before eventually making his return at training camp.
Packers fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing they have at least one more season full of highlight plays and dazzling touchdown passes from their starting QB. Just keep in mind that everything can change in an instant when it comes to Rodgers' rocky relationship with the organization.
Rodgers has made it clear that his goal is to lead this squad to another Super Bowl title. The Packers are tied for the third-best odds to take home the Lombardi Trophy at +1200, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
