Aaron Rodgers is definitely one of the more interesting people in the NFL. Overall, he is also one of the best quarterback talents to ever play the game. However, at times, his philosophies have caused problems for the Packers organization. Not to mention, it feels like there is uncertainty surrounding the QB, every single offseason. Every single year, Rodgers baits the Packers into thinking he will leave, only for him to come back. Once again, the cycle has been renewed this offseason, and now, things are getting even more ridiculous.
For instance, just last week, Rodgers entered a darkness retreat in Oregon. Overall, the concept is simple. You go into some sort of cabin in the woods, and you go directly to the basement where there is no light source. You don't have any technology either. The only thing you are allowed is a bathroom and some food. Although this sound ridiculous, it appears as though a lot of people actually participate in this. For Rodgers, it was supposed to provide clarity on whether or not he wants to be traded. However, we still don't know anything.
Aaron Rodgers Takes His Time
Reporter Rob Demovsky recently took to Twitter with some reporting from the NFL combine. While speaking to Packers GM Brian Gutekunst, it was revealed that Rodgers has not talked to the organization. At this point, it seems like the Packers are happy with doing whatever. “He’s a great player, but until we have those conversations, I think all options are on the table,” Gutekunst said. “We need to have those conversations. We want what’s best for the Green Bay Packers, what’s best for him so we’ll get to that coming up.”
This whole situation has put some strain on the Packers' front office. That said, perhaps a trade would end this tiresome saga, once and for all. Clearly, Rodgers doesn't want to play football for that much longer, and getting rid of him now would certainly bring in some assets. Furthermore, Jordan Love would finally get to develop. Let us know what you think the Packers should do, in the comments below.
