Packers QB Rodgers Reportedly Trying To Recruit Players, Will It Be To Green Bay Or Elsewhere?

Just how good of a salesman is Green Bay Packers longtime quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and if need be, can Rodgers get players to join either the Pack or another team he may play for in 2021?

That’s the big question. Last season’s NFC MVP has told anyone who will listen that he’d like out of cheese country and would like to start a second NFL career with another squad.

The pronouncement about Rodgers wanting out came a short time after the Pack fell at home to the Bucs in the NFC Title game.

Rodgers reportedly has a team or two in mind he would like to play for, but for the most part, he’s been quiet about where he would be willing to play in 2021.

Tuesday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said that Rodgers “is ramping up the recruitment effort” but that the Packers still have no plans to trade him.

“We know that Rodgers has talked to several different players about joining him somewhere else,” Rapoport said on the network.

“However, of course as we know, the Packers have zero plans whatsoever to trade him.”

The Packers are apparently not just sitting back and waiting for Rodgers to make demands. They reportedly made Rodgers a “significant long-term contract extension offer” that Rodgers did not take.

In the end, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Rodgers get another offer from Green Bay with a LOT of money attached to it.

Can the Pack make ARod happy is the big question, and if they did bring over a few players, would that be enough to keep their quarterback in the fold for years to come?

  1. So this is what “sports journalism” has regressed to?
    Players talk ALL THE TIME.
    Players ALWAYS say after a game, “hey…can you get me over there?”
    Ian Rappaport and Adam Schefter are the two BIGGEST butt-boys for Roger The Dodger Goodell.
    They’ll carry the NFL’s water across the Sahara if need be, and I guess Matt Loede has signed up for that wagon train as well.
    Funny…nobody names names…just “somebody said”…
