The Latest Update In The Aaron Rodgers Soap Opera Is The Funniest

Aaron Rodgers loves to hijack the media cycle off-season. This is another trait he shares with Brett Favre. People wonder what the future Hall of Famer will do. Will he return to Green Bay for another year? Will he retire? Or is it traded? It’s interesting to see how different opinions are this year compared to 2022. He doesn’t come from another MVP performance this time. His season was okay by usual standards, but well below his own, and it got worse when the Packers missed the playoffs. The last image anyone has of him is the game-changing interception against Detroit in the 4th quarter.

As it stands, his market is nowhere near what it would have been had the Packers traded him a year ago. While there are still teams interested in his services, the price for him may end up being more modest than some expect. Part of it is his age (he turns 40 in December), part of it is his massive contract, and part is clear evidence of his failing ability. An NFL executive spoke to The Athletic’s Mike Sando about the situation. When the idea of ​​the Las Vegas Raiders, a hot target due to media hype, came up, he made one of the most hilarious statements imaginable.

“Vegas would be fine for him,” said the first manager. “It just seems like an odd match, Rodger’s personality and Josh McDaniel’s. I think Josh would probably rather develop his own man than have Rodgers, and I think he’d rather have (Jimmy) Garoppolo than Rodgers.”

That should tell you how bad things are getting for Aaron Rodgers.

A team is willing to pick Garoppolo because he fits the mold better and is less of a headache than a future Hall of Famer on the first ballot. If this was five years ago, no team would consider such an absurdity. That should show how far Rodgers has fallen over the past year. Teams are no longer sold by his ability to level up a team. He needs a team to raise him up. While that would be fine in many cases, his contract and growing reputation for being a distraction make it less appetizing.

It is incongruous that this is where things have gone. Aaron Rodgers is in exactly the same spot as Favre was 15 years ago in 2008. His powers are waning and teams know it. They’re not willing to court him like the golden goose he still thinks he is. The man is an aging emperor desperately clinging to his throne. While the Chicago Bears couldn’t beat him, it’s a nice silver lining to see him slowly decline. This latest development is the icing on the cake.
