Peter King: Aaron Rodgers is “Solid” on Never Playing for the Pacers Again
June 7Matt LaMarcaSportsGrid
The Rodgers saga continues to be one of the biggest stories of the offseason. The newest chapter comes from NBC Sports’ Peter King, who said he “would bet Rodgers, today, is solid on never playing for the Packers again.” It’s just the latest report about Rodgers being entrenched in his stance, and King believes the Packers will ultimately be the side that blinks first. He suggests a potential compromise where the Packers agree to trade Rodgers after the 2021 season, which would give them an extra year to prepare Jordan Love before he takes over at quarterback. That said, that would require Rodgers to spend one more year in Green Bay, and who knows if that’s something he’s amenable to.
In other Packers’ news, Rodgers is expected to be the only absentee from the Packers’ mandatory minicamp this week. Many of the Packers’ wide receivers did not report for OTAs — including Davante Adams — but all are expected to report for minicamp.
The Packers are currently listed as +1700 to win Super Bowl LVI on FanDuel Sportsbook, but those odds would plummet if Rodgers isn’t under center.
