Green Bay’s playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers could mark the end of Aaron Rodgers’ tenure as a Packer.
The Green Bay Packers look like a Super Bowl lead as they head into the knockout stages, and pressure is mounting on the possibility that Aaron Rodgers could be forced out of town after the season. The heat seems to have been too great for the packers, who lost to 49ers 13-10 on a last-second goal in Rodgers’ final game for Green Bay.
Rodgers had a quiet run in the loss, going 20/29 in 225 yards without a touchdown or intercept while being sacked five times.
The loss also fueled all the rumors that Rodgers would be forced out of Green Bay after a public dispute with the organization last summer resulted in a renegotiated contract This gives him all the leverage in the situation.
Aaron Rodgers finished with Green Bay?
The new contract is void for the 2023 season under Rodgers’ agreement, meaning he will only be controlled in Green Bay in 2022 for a cap of $40 million. While Rodgers could rework his deal again if he wants to stay in Green Bay, his past frustrations with the organization combined with another early playoff exit will likely make the NFL’s current MVP looking for a deal to try and increase Rodgers’ odds. win another Super Bowl.
The roster interested in Rodgers is huge, although Rodgers’ interest in playing on the West Coast may be limited to some extent. The Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders may be among the heaviest Rodgers claimants as they try to keep up with the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West.
Either way, it’s hard to imagine a quarterback who caused a huge disappointment like Rodgers last summer feeling good about his situation after another playoff loss. Rodgers hasn’t attended the Super Bowl since 2011 and his desire to win another ring will likely keep him off Lambeau Stadium this winter.
