Whether Aaron Rodgers plays a snap for the Green Bay Packers this season remains a “beautiful mystery”. Rodgers hasn’t attended OTAs this week, which he usually does, and questions about his future with the team remain.
Only Rodgers and the Packers know the exact cause of his frustration and what it would take for him to return, if anything. And it’s certainly understandable why Rodgers would be frustrated. Take one look at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Tom Brady and it’s easy to see how the Bucs have gone all-in for the present in search of a Super Bowl. And that plan paid off last season.
That said, part of a general manager’s job is to keep an eye on the future, so it’s possible to see Brian Gutekunst’s thinking when he selected Jordan Love in the first round last year.
Maybe Rodgers will come back and play in Green Bay or perhaps he’ll be playing in a different uniform this season. And we might not have the answer to that question for a little while yet.
But in this article, I’m going to make my case for why Rodgers should return to Green Bay this season. Here are my top three reasons.
