Matt LaFleur Says Aaron Rodgers Isn’t Going Anywhere
February 1Matt LaMarcaSportsGrid
Rodgers sounded uncertain when talking about his future following the Packers’ loss to the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game, but his head coach doesn’t share the same concerns. LaFleur said there was “no doubt” that Rodgers would be the Packers starting quarterback in 2021, and he added that Rodgers would be with the team for “a long time”. The Packers used their first-round pick on quarterback Jordan Love last season, which increased the speculation that Rodgers’ time in Green Bay could be coming to a close.
That said, the Rams reportedly made a push for Rodgers before trading for Matthew Stafford and were told in no uncertain terms that Rodgers was not available. Rodgers is coming off a bounce-back year in 2020-21, and he will likely take home the third MVP award of his career at the conclusion of the season. He remains one of the best signal-callers in the league, so it’s not surprising that the Packers want to hold on to him. Maybe they’ll actually try to improve his supporting cast this offseason instead of drafting a potential replacement.
