Packers President Reveals Timeline for Aaron Rodgers Decision
Another offseason means more Aaron Rodgers drama for the Green Bay Packers, who just can't seem to keep their star QB happy. Despite getting a three-year, $150 million contract extension last offseason, Rodgers is already finding himself in the midst of trade rumors again after a disappointing season for both himself and the Packers.
Green Bay is still mulling its options with Rodgers but appears closer to making a decision based on recent comments from team president Mark Murphy.
Aaron Rodgers Trade Rumors
While Murphy conceded that the Packers don't have a strict deadline, he acknowledged that the sooner the team decides what to do with Rodgers, the better.
Murphy also said that Green Bay is aiming to make a decision by early March, before free agency opens on March 15. This gives the team several more weeks to weigh its options with the four-time MVP and feel out potential offers before committing to trade him or not.
At this point, parting of ways might be best for everyone involved. Rodgers has seemed sick of Green Bay the last few years and could probably use a change of scenery, plus he would fetch a huge return in a trade. The Packers still have Jordan Love waiting in the wings as well and should probably consider trading him if they decide to stick with Rodgers, who recently turned 39.
Either way, Green Bay needs to do something to get back on track after going 8-9 last year. The question now is whether dealing Rodgers will accomplish that.
