2. WR Davante Adams
The hope is that the Packers can work out a new contract this summer with Davante Adams, a move that could actually create some cap space in the short term. However, Adams did note that Aaron Rodgers’ future could “potentially” have an impact on his own.
Adams is a free agent next offseason.
He’ll be 29 by then, so it’s no guarantee the Packers will even want to offer a long-term deal, especially if Rodgers is gone. Would I re-sign him? Absolutely. But if Rodgers leaves and the Packers start over with Jordan Love, maybe it would make sense to get younger at wide receiver.
1. QB Aaron Rodgers
Rodgers’ future this season is still unclear. But even if he does return to play in 2021, it doesn’t mean he won’t depart Green Bay next spring. A new contract could change everything, but in the event that doesn’t happen, perhaps it will be in the best interest of both Rodgers and the Packers to part ways next year.
Rodgers would get a fresh start to go after another Super Bowl elsewhere, while the Packers could enter a new era at QB. In terms of cap savings, the Packers could create a lot of room by trading him next year.
