Because the saying goes, it takes one to know one.
Aaron Rodgers startled many along with his clear postgame feedback Sunday after the 31-26 NFC championship recreation loss to the Buccaneers, saying that his future in a Green Bay uniform is “uncertain.”
Effectively, who higher to investigate these feedback than former Packer QB — and multiple-time retiree — Brett Favre? Talking on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Favre provided a little bit of perception into what Rodgers is likely to be pondering, and what the Packers ought to do (via ProFootballTalk):
I wouldn’t pay a lot consideration to it. I feel frustration, disappointment, harm, ache, all have been in that soundbite. Look, there is no manner the Packers would do something to jeopardize dropping Aaron, except Aaron simply chooses to retire, which I’d be shocked. The man’s taking part in higher now than he is ever performed, and with out him, you actually would not have been even near the place you have been. And I feel the identical will go for subsequent 12 months, and actually the subsequent few years, if he chooses to play. I would not pay a lot consideration to what he mentioned. I have been there. It is so — I imply, it hurts. It is painful. The very last thing you need to do is consider subsequent 12 months, since you simply had a significant disappointment, and that’s what you are listening to in that soundbite.
There is a very, very slim probability that Rodgers finally ends up on one other crew to begin the 2021 NFL season, however it’s price noting that the Packers chosen quarterback Jordan Love with their first-round decide within the 2021 draft, that means Inexperienced Bay is wanting towards the long run proper now — no matter how nicely Rodgers is taking part in.
Rodgers, 37, is underneath contract with the Packers for 3 extra seasons, with ’22 and ’23 seasonable cap hits ought to he be launched (not possible). However, the long run is clearly beginning to creep into Rodgers’ thoughts, which might change issues over the subsequent season.
