Report: Aaron Rodgers, Packers Close to Agreement Setting Up Final Season in Green Bay



After their rift dominated the 2021 offseason headlines, it appears the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers are going to give their strained marriage one more shot.

Rodgers and Green Bay are reportedly close to an agreement on a reworked contract that will keep the reigning MVP with the club through this season, according to multiple reports.

After the Packers reportedly made concessions to entice Rodgers to return to training camp, the 37-year-old quarterback will now have a say in his own future following the 2021 campaign. All signs point to him playing elsewhere in 2022 and beyond.

Rodgers’ displeasure with the brass of the organization became public knowledge during April’s draft, and the quarterback has been evading questions about his future with the franchise and NFL career during interviews and televised golf matches ever since.

Not only will the reworked deal allow Rodgers significant control over where he plays beyond this season, but it will also provide the Packers additional cap space to further surround him with talent in 2021.

Rodgers missed Green Bay’s entire offseason program amid the tension. The Packers report to training camp on Tuesday.

Rodger passed for 4,299 yards and 48 touchdowns with just five interceptions last season. He also led the league with 70.7% completion percentage.

His 412 passing touchdowns are the seventh-most in NFL history. Rodgers has only had 1.4% of his career passes intercepted, which is tied for the lowest mark ever.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will travel to Green Bay to face Rodgers and the Packers on Sunday, Oct. 3 at 4:25 p.m.
