Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is still yet to make a decision on what is next in his NFL career.
The four-time league MVP is contemplating a trade from the Packers, retiring, or returning to the team for another season.
He ended his three-day darkness retreat last Wednesday that was supposed to help him make a decision.
Analyst and talk show host Colin Cowherd recently spoke about the Packers’ QB situation on his show. He thinks that Rodgers’ Green Bay teammates are getting disgruntled.
“Quarterbacks get paid more. You can’t hit them in practice. I’m not saying teammates resent them, but it’s the most privileged position in the league. I do wonder about teammates of Aaron Rodgers sitting there thinking, Bro, just make a decision.
“We already can’t hit you at practice. You’re the highest paid. You get all the endorsements… Do you think it can turn into a situation where even if you kind of like him, that there could be resentment for him holding everybody at bay after a while?”
Green Bay Packers reportedly want Aaron Rodgers back in 2023
There have been mixed rumors about the Packers and Rodgers. Some reports have suggested that the Packers are ready to move on from Rodgers, while others state that they would like him to return as their quarterback this season.
NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero said on “The Rich Eisen Show” that the Packers do indeed want him back.
“If he wants to return to Green Bay, the Packers — as long as he’s fully bought in — want him back They had good conversations after the season. Down the stretch last season, he played at a high level. He kept them in it.
“Obviously, Week 18 didn’t go the way they wanted. There would also need to be further conversations about making sure everybody is on the same page about the direction that the roster and the organization is going.”
Aaron Rodgers had a ‘down’ year last year, going 8-9 as the Packers’ starting quarterback and missing the playoffs. He averaged a career low in passing yards per game (228.1).
The 39-year-old played well down the stretch in the season and is still worthy of leading the Packers on a championship run.
