Rumors of Aaron Rodgers Turning Down a Contract Extension Circulate, Although Doubted

There’s no question that Aaron Rodgers has been the face of the Packers’ franchise since taking over as starting quarterback in 2008. In fact, he’s only had two losing seasons since and went 26-6 over the past two years. Despite the three league MVPs and a Super Bowl title, the Packers and Rodgers now appear to be at a crossroads. Many fans, including the world of online sports betting, are eagerly waiting for the conclusion.

The 37-year-old Rodgers turned down a two-year contract extension, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Sources indicated that the extension would have kept Rodgers with the Packers through the 2025 season and made him the highest paid player in the entire league. To be clear, there is still plenty of doubt surrounding this information.

Three months ago, it was made known through sources to Schefter that Rodgers had become disgruntled with the Packers’ management.

Therefore, his return to the team seemed precarious at best. Nevertheless, the Packers have always maintained that they would not trade Rodgers.

On Rodgers’ end, he has stood firm and didn’t show up to voluntary OTAs for the first time since entering the NFL in 2005. With training camp set to begin in a week, the situation becomes more dire for the Packers with every passing day.

It appears that the Packers trading up in 2020 to draft quarterback Jordan Love without telling Rodgers has been a major issue for him. Rodgers has been steadfast that his issue has nothing to do with the pick itself, but with about the organization doing things the right way.

As much as Rodgers saying it isn’t about picking Love, it really is. You think Rodgers would care if the wasn’t told that the team was trading up to select a receiver or running back? It’s clearly about the team drafting a potential replacement for Rodgers without letting him know. Despite the fact that Rodgers is still at the top of his game, he will turn 38 in December and sooner rather than later the Packers need to think about a replacement.

For Rodgers to turn down a deal that would make him the highest paid player in the league isn’t a good sign that he’ll return to Green Bay. Although away from the team, he’s kept busy, fine tuning his golf game in a made-for-TV charity event and the Celebrity Championship at Lake Tahoe. In addition, he’s made guest hosting appearances on Jeopardy!, all ways to keep the proper frame of mind.

Picturing Rodgers in another uniform is difficult, but the longer he remains unsigned, the more likely it could become a reality. If that is the case, a new era of Packers football is right around the corner.

    The one thing we know is the Green Bay Packers never ever talk about money and specific contracts. Never. So this notion that Rodgers turned down a 90 million dollar contract extension at 45 million per season for a two years is total bull shit. Conveniently coming to light less than a week before camp opens. Only team Rodgers can be responsible for circulating such a turd. “Why, I’m a man of principle” says tinker bell, “I turned down 90 million to stand up for myself.” Ok, sweetheart, then retire now and walk away from 35 million this season. If you can walk away from 90 million then you can easily walk away from a third of that. But like going on Pat McAfee and proclaiming himself the goat. He can talk the talk but can’t walk the walk. His sorry little will report to camp and he’ll collect his checks. All the while thinking in his mind he stood up for himself. Never have I seen an athlete so out of touch with his fan base. And I lived thru Favre. He’s even got Shailene Woodley and his dad Ed fighting the good fight for him. The circus has come to town.

      Ya, I mentioned about 2 months ago that I want to hear these things from the horses mouth rather than listen to every talking head on TV or the radio. The media has only one objective, and that is to conjure up a story, create as much buzz as possible, throw there own “spin” on it, and what tickles me pink; is when they try to outdue each other. We have nothing new to digest, (with meaning, or fact) since this shit show started.

        Valid point Kato.
        .
        But here’s the thing….that’s as far as we can go as far as commenting on the Packers/Rodgers drama.
        There are many questions, but virtually none that we (or most people) know the answer (truth) to.
        We don’t know.
        .
        Sure, people like The Dumb and Dumber Brothers can make up storylines as they go and even try to prevent it as fact. Most people here are smarter than that.
        Then after that fails, the brothers will present you with stories on Mommies, Rodgers panties, wide asses, how Rodgers is a pussy who has no honor and Murphy is 3 steps ahead of Rodgers (my favorite) :)
        .
        So…in time, yes, some questions will be answered, but some of them will never be answered. But enough will be answered to where we will get the jist of it hopefully.

        But The Dumb and Dumber Brothers, who pretend to know what the two parties are thinking, what they have or haven’t done, what they’ve said or haven’t said, what has or hasn’t been offered is getting old.

        Hell….i’m waiting for the Brothers to report on what was said between the Packers and Rodgers when the Packers flew out to see him.
        And why not….they know everything.
        .
        So in time, in short manner, some of this will be cleared up and some questions answered. Then we can monitor the situation with Adams and hear reports on Love in camp, and then finally, watching him in pre-season.
        .
        In the meantime…
        Don’t let The Dumb and Dumber Brothers dumb down the conversation in here. I think we’ve heard enough about huffing panties, people’s Moms, asses and various other high intellect from those two.

    I would love to hear the actual details of this contract extension he was offered. The only thing that matters is the guaranteed money – you all know that. It’s entirely possible they offered him a front loaded contract, maybe with a massive roster bonus, that still gave the FO the option to reasonably walk away from him early.

    There’s a great article in Defector about this (defector is where the former deadspin writers are now). Worth a read.

      I’m not so sure a contract extension was ever offered. The Packers aren’t saying and probably won’t. And I don’t trust what the media is saying. It’s pretty much Rodgers propaganda in order to keep the heat on the organization to facilitate a trade and time is running out. What we do know is the Packers tried to restructure Rodgers contract to sign FA’s. This coming from agents from FA players who had no dog in the fight one way or the other. Not only did Rodgers decline to restructure, he told FA not to sign with the Packers. Which tells you he doesn’t care about the fans or his teammates and tried to undermine the team.

      While it is true Mark Murphy offered Brett Favre a “job” within the organization to stay retired back in 2008. And according to Favre the annual salary was 20 million a year. That’s hush money at its finest. It’s important to note that such deal would have no impact on the cap at the time and those funds would have come from the organizational side of the budget. Not the football side. I’m extremely skeptical the Packers would commit upwards of 90 million dollars for any player three years from now in his 40’s. Now, if Rodgers wins a SB this year then I think you probably have to offer an extension. Another MVP, no.

        I’m not going to read it to you. I’m not your mother. You googled the first one, you can find this one too. But it’s right after the part where it says the extension would “exceed Patrick Mahomes annual salary and 500 million dollar contract to be the highest paid player in all of football.” I say it never happened because it’s out of character for what Russ Ball, Brian Gutekunst, and Mark Murphy would do. While it’s totally in character for Rodgers to fabricate such nonsense to make this about principle. When In reality it’s about a baby throwing a tantrum and not getting his way.

    It’s funny, Piffle and Tom M seem to have the exact same personality. Don’t drink the Wisconsin water, kids!

    In this epic match, I’m going to give the edge to Tom M. Reason being, he is highly aware of what a selfish ass Rodgers is while Piffle is still clueless despite years and years of evidence. I also do think Piffle could and should have looked up the sources and then he play-acted like they did not confirm what Tom M said.

    I will say this, though, Tom M: That contract offer — which may or may not have ever happened — was almost certainly leaked by the Packers org. They want to show they’ve made every effort to get Rodgers back whereas refusing tons of money and an extension as the highest paid only makes Rodgers look worse. If you look at who stands to gain and motives, it almost had to be the Packers org, not Rodgers.

    I still say Rodgers is going to show up Day 1 to camp. It’s like Tom Brady said to Rodgers: he has no options. He is going to go in, pretending to be a conquering “doing it for the team” here, when, really, he is defeated and was expertly manipulated and worked over by the Packers org. Case in point, this latest “leak.” Murphy has shown he is an expert Rodgers manipulator, he is always three steps ahead of Rodgers, and I guarantee Rodgers will, in the end, after this silent whine-fest, show up completely cowed and obedient and servile.

      An astute observation sir. While I respectfully disagree on who you believed leaked the alleged contract extension, I will concede it’s not out of the realm of possibility that it could’ve been the Packers. Regardless, Rodgers turned down the a 90 million contract extension so the story goes. If true then why would Rodgers want to play out the remainder of his current contract for less money? When he’s willing to walk away from 90 million now. Rodgers sees himself as Tom Brady. Playing until he’s 45 and winning SB’s. Why risk injury, and winning a championship for two men you totally despise in Mark Murphy and Brian Gutekunst. Retire now. Make the Packers sink or swim with Jordan Love and hope you can force the issue next offseason with a trade. If not then you become a free agent when your 40 and healthy and play another 5 yrs for a west coast team like you’ve always wanted. If it’s not about money that’s what you do.

    It’s being reported (everywhere) that the Packers and Adams have ended contract talks.
    Maybe some intelligent points should be made about that.
    .
    Instead of the current conversation in here some have brought to this football site, regarding such interesting subjects such as sniffing Rodgers panties, Mommy burns and widening asses.
    Lets try to stop the dumbing down of this site that those readers here bring to us.
    .
    Adams contract isn’t an immediate problem because he still has a year to go. But, i believe it’s a problem for Adams.
    Some of you may have noticed Adams hasn’t participate in team activities, basically he was just catching passes off to the side in the mandatory mini camp.
    There is a reason for that. He doesn’t want to risk injury.
    I’ve noted a potential problem here awhile ago, but i was ridiculed by the “Mommy” and “panties” juvenile crowd
    .
    It’s highly possible that once training camp starts, Adams again isn’t involved in team practices, and pre-season games, (maybe more?) without a contract. Why would he expose himself and risk injury?
    .
    As far as the chances of that happening, just look at Cam Akers and his torn Achilles he suffered merely training on his own. That injury puts him out for the 2021 season.
    .
    I doubt Adams puts his financial future up for chance and rolls the dice.
    .
    With Rodgers, Adams separate situations, and Love finally getting on the field (pre-season) there will be plenty of storylines before the Packers get to their first regular season game.
    .
    The potential Adams drama can be nixed two possible ways. A new contract, or an insurance policy against injury. Lloyds of London style.

      You can’t make everyone the highest paid player at their position. See Rodgers, Bakhtiari, Clark, and now Adams. There just isn’t the cap space. We’ve also got Jaire Alexander and his contract on the horizon which will be a priority. We all know what it’s like to lose a good corner. See Casey Hayward. Alexander is infinitely better and will cost accordingly. They’ll be some tough decisions come next offseason. Adams wants to get paid, Rodgers wants control, and no one seems to care about making a SB run here.

    Peter Bukowski had a pretty good take on the Rodgers situation yesterday. And I am like him, I am quite frankly sick of the situation. Rodgers is being a passive aggressive dick. If he wants out, simply come out and say so. Don’t pull shit like what he has staying silent the entire off-season, except making passive aggressive comments. I am honestly sick of it. He is leaving his teammates, coaches, and the fanbase out to dry as collateral damage in his hissy fit with the front office. Its bullshit, and honestly, fuck him. If he shows up, cool. If not, I don’t give a fuck. This whole situation is erasing any good memories I have of him. He is a petulant child.

    What if GB management and/or the NFL put pressure on Rodgers to get vaccinated as a team/nfl leader? Imagine the fuss if a high profile athlete refuses…
    .
    You can google and find several articles over the last 1.25 years where Rodgers’ views on related issues are cross-wise to what the NFL is pushing…
    .
    Just saying that we need to hear both sides to know for sure; however, something may have been said by GB management to limit Rodgers’ free speech. ??

        As smart as Rodgers is…it seems he’s easily influenced.
        .
        Remember when Martellus Bennet got his ear about systematic racism and equality and Rodgers kind of Championed himself as a leader of those injustices?
        .
        What has Rodgers done for those causes after the day Bennett left the Green Bay Packers?….Exactly.

        As far as Covid……
        .
        “I think the important thing to think about, though which is more important than [sports] is the state of the country and the fact that we have 36-plus million people on unemployment right now. You have rising poverty levels to go along with the unemployment.” – Rodgers
        .
        Where Rodgers and i disagree, is on what the important thing to think about is…..
        .
        I think the important thing to think about…….
        1) Is stopping the millions of people who got sick and hospitalized due to Covid.
        2) Is the 670,000+ lives lost in the US from Covid.

        I have the feeling…the families of the 670,000 people who died, didn’t view unemployment levels, high on their priority list.
        .
        Maybe Rodgers can explain it to them

          My point for the above post is this: we have been thinking that Rodgers is mad at GB management because of previous personal moves… not getting another WR ect.
          .
          What if the issues are deeper than personnel moves? What if Rodgers is mad about GB management (or the NFL) is pushing something that he seems to be against (again I do not want to put words in Rodgers’ mouth but listen to what he has said).
          .
          Being outspoken about government officials like Pelosi and Gov Newsome being hypocrites, questioning the NFL covid protocals not being based on “science”, lockdowns hurting small businesses, ect has to have rubbed the NFL brass the wrong way. Maybe GB management told Rodgers’ to shut up and get the jab?

            No worries….
            .
            My post were thoughts i had after looking at the links you left.
            .
            No…i don’t think the NFL brass is worried about Rodgers speaking out.
            I also don’t think the Packers care anymore regarding Rodgers, except for how they are perceived.
            Like i said, he was gone in 2021 anyway, maybe Rodgers moved it up a year.
            Time will tell.

            Personally i view the people who have a problem with Covid protocols, questioning the science, the same i view the flat earth people, or the US government being behind 9/11 people.

            PF4L, you and I have our disagreements. But I think this statement is 100% spot on. You would think 670k people dying (honestly probably more based excess death numbers above expected last year)would have people’s attention. But unfortunately there is a segment of very individualistic people in this country.

            Dean, you bring up a good point about the co-mingling of censorship from an all powerful social media platform and government. Even doctors and legitimate scientists have been hushed for trying to share information on this issue because the FB moderators know more than they do. We hear all the time about – you must trust the science.

            Well, in the world of science, not everything is – settled science. Science is always about testing new theories and challenging the status quo of ideas. That is often how science evolves. The term – settled science – is often quite overused.

            That being said, I think we can all agree that there is settled science on the fact that the earth is indeed – round. But, the Flat Earth Society still has a Facebook page and the FB moderators haven’t snuffed them out and shut them down. Just thought that was an interesting irony since someone mentioned flat earth.

            I had Covid, and I have since received my vaccine. However, if I had wanted to get in a FB discussion and simply ask some legitimate questions about the need for a vaccine when I already have immunity in my system I could probably wind up in FB jail, especially if I tried to post links to support that argument.

            SM and the current admin are trying to frame their enemies a certain way because – othering – is a tactic. Currently the two largest demographic groups of non-compliance with receiving vaccines are Blacks and Hispanics. Hardly right-wing conspiracy types. The numbers are easy to find on the CDC site and the Wis Dept of Health site and they are pretty consistent nationwide. Despite all the outreach and availability, especially in the areas where those populations primarily reside. But who gets the blame for vaccine non-compliance?

            Robert Kennedy Jr. is one of the biggest voices of anti-vaccination in this country. RFK Jr is no wild-eyed right-wing conspiracy type himself, but…. Who gets the blame for not getting the jab?

            Those people should get right and get healthy so they can enjoy football. There, relevance.

    Here is yet another reason I despise the mainstream media. Today, we’ve heard that contract negotiations between the Packers and Adams have broken down. Within minutes the mainstream media is accusing the Packers have low-balled Adams. Not surprisingly, they give no concrete info to back this story up; as far as the low ball side of it. It’s only going to get shittier people. Every sports commentator is looking at GB, drooling, and can’t wait for the next little tidbit of info; the next tasty morsel. In my opinion, before the shareholders meeting, the mainstream media should all be given rabies shots, you know, just to help them settle down a little!

    We’re approaching the point where the Rodgers/Packers situation gets real….real soon.
    .
    Apparently, allegedly, some Vegas sports book believe Rodgers will retire on or about next Wednesday.
    To the point where some have closed betting on the Packers and some bets on the rest of the NFC North.
    .
    According to Bill Huber of SI.com, several sports books believe Rodgers will announce his retirement before Green Bay’s first practice on Wednesday.
    .
    According to Huber, Westgate SuperBook recently closed projected wins, playoff odds, divisional odds and weekly lines for all four NFC North teams.
    .
    According to Pro Football Talk, PointsBet sports book and DraftKings have removed Green Bay from the list of 32 teams where you can make over-under win total bets. The Packers are the only team where gamblers can’t make such a bet.
    .
    My thought…it seems too early to make such moves citing the fact that next week, they’ll have more information.
    .
    I’ve mentioned Adams and the Packers halting contract talks. So of course there is talk about the Packers being able to tag him next off season…blah blah blah….
    If the Packers tagged Adams, you’d have the 2nd Packer blue chip player asking to be traded in as many years.
    I’m not surprised by the Adams talk, and…i’m not faulting the Packers.
    I said…not long ago….Adams will do what’s in his best interest, not the teams best interest. That opinion was based on some actions awhile back on Adams part.
    .
    I don’t blame the Packers in part because they simply don’t have the money. Sure they could sign him to 25 million a year, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right, or the smartest move.
    The financials are part the Packers fault, and part an act of God, or China.
    The Packers are behind financially because of Covid, like other teams. But part of it is the wild spending spree of 2019. Part of it is all the contracts they restructured.
    Covid isn’t the lone excuse, or every team would be in the red concerning salary cap, and that’s just not the case.
    .
    So….what’s the smart move by the Packers?
    .
    I know what the dumb move is…..
    Trying to keep two blue chip players that don’t want to be part of your team.
    .
    The smart move is turning this into a trade bonanza.
    Trading both next off season, if done right, is like winning the lottery in epic proportion.
    Like maybe 2 or 3 first round picks, 2 or 3 2nd round picks, plus a player or 3.

    That……would be hitting it out of the park for the franchise.
    .
    From a team perspective.
    If i’m the Packers fucked up front office….that’s the ending of the story i want.
    Save 50 million off the cap, and receive serious, serious draft capital.
    .
    Rodgers was gone after 2021 anyway…lets not bs ourselves.
    So if Rodgers doesn’t sit or retire, we have a year to go with the band still together.
    .
    Not the worst way to go..

    I get it. I’m dumb you guys are smart. I have an awesome family. They’re taken care of forever and I’m only 32 years old. I have a great life. I’d say I’ve done pretty well for a dumb guy with CTE.

    Here is where the NFL has it wrong……

    They claim that players won’t get paid if games are canceled due to Covid.
    Lets be real, the games won’t be forfeited unless something extreme happens.

    A better idea…..
    .
    If a unvaxxed player test positive and is unavailable, he loses his game check, simple
    Because….he was unavailable, because of his own choice, that’s on the player.
    .
    The Devils advocate…..
    Yes…a vaccinated player could still test positive and miss games, should he lose a game check?

    Absolutely not, because he did all he could by getting vaccinated.

      Unvaccinated people and their families enjoy getting back to living normal life, enjoying life.
      .
      But they act as if that just happened by accident, or the passage of time.
      Ignoring the fact, it was made possible, by people getting vaccinated.

      Instead of petulant whining like Beasley…maybe a simple thank you to vaccinated people…. would be justified..

    Covid News….The Vikings and O line coach Rick Dennison are in a tussle over Dennison being vaccinated. It seems the Vikings would fire him, but are being careful in a legal sense to not expose themselves to a lawsuit from Dennison.

    Asked by a reporter about why he refuses to get vaccinated, Dennison said “Getting a shot is scary, plus they hurt!!”
