Packers: Three ways Aaron Rodgers situation can be solved
What a mess. While the Green Bay Packers have put together a good draft class this past week, the headline story surrounds the future of all-world quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
With countless reports and rumors, it’s hard to know the truth with this situation. But what is clear is that Rodgers isn’t happy with the situation as it is in Green Bay. The fact team president Mark Murphy, general manager Brian Gutekunst, and head coach Matt LaFleur have all acknowledged this says a lot.
In his monthly column for Packers.com, Murphy was quite open about the situation, writing that it’s an “issue that we have been working on for several months”. He also noted that he, Gutekunst, and LaFleur have all flown out to meet with Rodgers. That’s pretty significant and suggests this is a complicated issue and one that clearly hasn’t got an easy resolution.
The exact details, we don’t know. Only Rodgers, Murphy, Gutekunst, and LaFleur have a good idea of where things stand and the likelihood of Rodgers playing again in Green Bay.
But to put it simply, there are only a few different directions this can end up. Either Rodgers returns, is traded elsewhere, or retires.
Let’s break down each potential scenario and what it could mean.
